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.

YOUTH CHOIR AT TRINITY: All young people age 13 and under are invited to gather together for a 30 minute choir practice after the 10 a.m. Service each week, starting next Sunday, October 16th. The first 15 minutes will be spent on music for our very young choristers, with the older singers helping to lead the little ones.  The next 15 minutes will be spent on more challenging music for the older choristers, with the little ones watching and listening.   A special snack will be provided so that we can gather together in the Sanctuary immediately following the service. Please contact Victoria with any questions.

FROSTY’S FAIR UPDATE: Sue Cherry (613-730-5347) is organizing another great Christmas bazaar this year. If you have any questions about donating or making things for Frosty’s Fair just ask her. You can bring items to Trinity any Sunday or during office hours Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (10:00a.m. – 2:30 p.m.).

The Cozy Crafts Table is a busy place at the bazaar. Do you like to knit or sew? Could you make some of your favourite items, or even think of some new ideas to put on this table? Contact Beulah Rumbolt (613-222-9892) or bring the items to church any Sunday and give them to her or Sue Cherry.

The Silent Auction Table is a great spot for shoppers to place bids on items for gifts or even special treats for themselves.  Do you have anything to donate for this table? Collectables, antiques, unique items that you no longer use, and would like to go to a new home.

Do you can? Shoppers know homemade jams, jellies and preserves are much tastier than store-bought ones. There is still time to make a batch of your special favourites for Frosty’s Fair. Contact Lisa MacGillivray (613-841-2526).

ROAST BEEF DINNER: Trinity is planning a fundraising roast beef dinner on Saturday, November 26th at 6:00 pm.  Wine will be available for purchase, and there will be draws and entertainment.  David Hemings (613-822-4697; and Heather Maclachlan (613- 523-1747; are organizing this event, and are looking for volunteers.  Please contact one of them if you are able to help out.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED to deliver food donations to the Centretown Emergency Food Centre located at 507 Bank Street in the basement of Centretown United Church. Someone is also needed to deliver donated clothing, etc. to The Well, located at St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church, Somerset Street West (at Elgin Street).  Please speak with Jane in the office for more information.

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.

AN EVENING OF THE MUSIC OF ANTONIO VIVALDI will be hosted by Southminster United Church on Saturday October 22, at 7:00 p.m.  Adults $20; Students $10. Tickets are available from the Southminster church office (cash or cheque only), the Ottawa Folklore Centre, the Leading Note and Compact Music (on Bank).  See poster on clothesline at the back of the church for more information.

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.
