Welcome to Trinity!  If this is your first visit, please note that we do not take a collection during the service, but your offering may be placed on the plate at the back of the church as you enter or leave.  Also, there are many occasions during the service where we stand for lengthy periods.  If you are more comfortable sitting or kneeling, please feel free to do so.

The Prayers of the People:

Leader: In today’s gospel, Jesus invites us to follow him.

People: As he laid down his life in intercession for the world, let us pray on behalf of people every­where that the Lord will give us strength.

Leader: In our Diocese, we pray today for St. James’, Perth, St. Augustine’s, Drummond, and for the members of the Synod Management Subcommittee. For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest, for all the clergy and people.  For all people of faith who struggle to believe in the promise of life amid the clamor of death, let us pray to the Lord.

People: For the churches who must bear witness to the possibility of taking up the cross and following Jesus, let us pray to the Lord.

Leader: For those who are losing their souls in the pursuit of worldly gain, let us pray to the Lord.

People: For those laying down their lives in faithful dedication to God’s call, let us pray to the Lord.

Leader: Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence). We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence).  For those who are to die this week, and for their safe passage to the life of the world to come, let us pray to the Lord.

People: For all here present who will one day be judged by God’s standards and meet Christ coming in glory, let us pray to the Lord.

Leader: Most high God, your ways are not our ways, yet your ways bear life.  Hear the petitions of your assembled people.

People: Pour out on your world the faith to hear your call and the courage to answer it. We ask this in the name of Jesus, who is one with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: We are looking for volunteers to help with a variety of church activities: readers, prayers of the people, coffee hour, Tuesday morning counters, prayer team members, altar guild members, and lay assistants at the altar.  Please speak to Rev. Andrea to get more information about ministry description and time commitment.  Thank you for your support.

NEW MUSIC ON SUNDAYS: Please join us at 9:50 a.m. each week as Victoria and the choir lead us through any new hymns or music that we’ll be singing during the Service. It will be wonderful to have everyone “sing out” during the Service after running through the music beforehand!

WORDS AND MUSIC, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2011, 4 P.M.: This is the second in this series, and features Janet Hemings, reader, and Victoria Scott, piano and organ. If you missed the first one, please plan to attend this hour of music readings, and reflection.  It offers a chance to sit quietly and enjoy the beautiful space we have at Trinity, outside of our regular worship.  A free will offering will be received.


What can you do to take part?

  • Help at one of the “tables” to set up and sell.
  • Bring items for the bazaar: for the Silent Auction, Book Nook, Attic Treasures, Jewellery, Silent Room and Fish Pond.
  • Make things for the bazaar: baking, jams & preserves, knitting, sewing & crafts.
  • Help to decorate.


Sue Cherry is Frosty’s Fair Co-ordinator. She can answer any questions (613-730-5347). Check the bulletins every Sunday for up-dates on the bazaar.

Chris Garnett (613-737-1176) is collecting jewellery for the Jewellery Table. Bring necklaces, earrings, bracelets, whatever items you would like to donate to her any Sunday.

Nancy Bassam (613-731-5086) needs items for Attic Treasures. Thinking of re-gifting items you’ve stashed away?  Don’t use that set of dishes, that vase or your old auntie’s tea set anymore?

Shoppers buy these treasures as gifts for friends, even for themselves.  All items should be in good shape, not cracked or chipped.

Sue Taylor (613-230-3903) is collecting books for the Book Nook, fiction, non-fiction, kids books, CDs, DVDs. Please, no text books, encyclopaedias, computer manuals or magazines.




CORNERSTONE HOUSING FOR WOMEN is in need of new or gently used bedding (pillows, sheets and blankets) and winter coats and boots in large, extra-large and double extra-large sizes. Also, the residents at the new residence on Booth Street are hoping to acquire an acoustic guitar for sing-a-longs and other social gatherings.  If you can help with any of these items, please contact Yvonne Garvey at 613-254-6584 ext. 503.  Please note they are not in need of other clothing items at this time.

CHANGE FOR CHANGE.  Don’t forget to drop all your spare change into the World Vision bucket for Sheila.  Check the scrap book for the latest updates on her progress.






If you have any announcement that didn’t make this week’s bulletin, please let Rev. Andrea know prior to the service and she will ensure that it is read.
