8:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist

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.

Organ prelude

We Gather As God’s People

Opening Hymn:  We are One 

1. We are one as we come,

as we come, joyful to be here,

in the praise on our lips

there’s a sense that God is near.

We are one as we sing,

as we seek, we are found;

and we come needful of God’s grace

as we meet, together in this place.


2. We are one as we share,

as we share brokenness and fear,

in the touch of a hand

there’s a sense that God is here.

We are one as we care,

as we heal, we are healed;

and we share warmth in God’s embrace

as we pray together in this place.


3. We are one as we feast

As we feast peace becomes the sign;

In the bread and the wine

There’s a sense of love divine

We are one as we come,

As we feed, we are fed,

And we feel God’s refreshing grace

As we meet at table in this place.


4. We are one as we hear,

As we hear, heart and hand unite,

In the word we receive

There’s a sense that God is light.

We are one as we leave,

As we love, we are loved,

And we seek justice in God’s ways

As we move together from this place.

The Prayers of the People:

Leader: Gathering all that commands our prayers, let us intercede with our gracious God, for those in any need or trouble.

People: For the church, that God’s commandments may be always be close to us, wonderful to ponder and life-giving to keep.

We pray for the Growing in Faith Together (GIFT) Campaign Chair, Honorary Chair, and the Campaign Leadership Team. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem we pray for St. Phillip’s Episcopal Church and Church of the Good Shepherd, Nablus.  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.

People: For children, that infants and young people of every nation may have food and learning, and that they may love their world.

Leader: For this gathered community, that the solemn brightness of Lent may open our eyes to these times, their folly and their worth.

People: For all the members of this parish community that we might be faithful witnesses and ministers to those in need.

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 pray to you O Lord. We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). For all who have died, that they be at peace.

People: For the dead, especially those who held to and handed on God’s commandment until our day, that they may be at peace.

Leader: Jealous and merciful God, remember each of us and all those whom we hold in our hearts.

People: In these forty days teach us to do the work of our baptism and so daily to raise to you the needs of the world. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Offertory Hymn: Lord of the Dance

I danced in the morning when the world was begun,

And I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun,

And I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth,

At Bethlehem I had my birth.



Dance, then, wherever you may be;

I am the Lord of the Dance, said he.

And I’ll lead you all wherever you may be,

And I’ll lead you all in the dance, said he.


I danced for the scribe and the Pharisee,

But they would not dance and they would not follow me;

I danced for the fishermen, for James and John;

They came to me and the dance went on.




I danced on the sabbath when I cured the lame,

The holy people said it was a shame;

They whipped and they stripped and they hung me high;

And they left me there on a cross to die.




I danced on a Friday and the sky turned black;

It’s hard to dance with the devil on your back;

They buried my body and they thought I’d gone,

But I am the dance and I still go on.




They cut me down and I leapt up high,

I am the life that’ll never, never die;

I’ll live in you if you’ll live in me;

I am the Lord of the Dance, said he.

Trinity will be showing, in the church, the movie The Clean Bin Project. This film is by a Vancouver husband-and-wife team, Jen Rustemeyer and Grant Baldwin. A fundraiser for Trinity, the admission will be “pay what you can,” with a recommended donation of $10.  Entertaining and thought-provoking, the movie documents how this couple spent a year trying to produce as little landfill waste as possible. As they put it, “For one year we will not buy any material goods and will attempt to live without producing household garbage.”

LEARN HOW TO TIE A PALM! On Saturday, March 31st at 10:00 a.m. join Bob Taylor in the Canterbury Room and learn the art of palm tying.  Meet new friends, have some fun and see if you can recognize your tied palms the next day in Church.


OUT OF THE COLD DINNER March 31st requires volunteers to help with hosting.   We need volunteers to help set-up, prepare the dinner, register guests, serve dinner and clean up.  Shifts are between 2 and 3 hours between 2PM and 7PM.  Trinity has hosted this dinner at Southminster United Church for a number of years.  Please consider participating in this important outreach activity.  The sign-up sheet is in Bender Hall or call Judy Richardson at 613 730 7482.
