We are collecting gift bags for teens and infants once again this year.  Thank you for your generous support!!.  There are a few bags at the front of the church, or use your own bags if you would like.  In the bags is an information sheet on what to include as well as an envelope (if you would like an income tax receipt). 

Who will get the gifts:  Teens with the Family Connexions in Collingwood will be our focus.  We will also have some bags available for infants and toddlers.

What to add:  Shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes and paste, school supplies, waterproof gloves/mitts, winter hats, and anything else you desire, including gift cards to Subway or Mr Sub…. 

Please return your bags by Sunday, Dec 9th, 2018.   

Thanks again!

Trinity's Outreach



Trinity Volunteers hard at work: Community Dinner February/18





Church Finance and PAR
PAR or pre-authorized remittance allows you to continually support Trinity when you are away and avoids those “catch-up” periods. Nor do you have to search for your cheque book at the last minute on a Sunday morning. For the congregation, it helps generate a dependable flow of cash to help Trinity meet its financial obligations. There is also less paper work and bookkeeping to be done by staff and volunteers. Have you considered using it to make your Trinity offering? It is simple to initiate and change, and yet it does not prevent one from participating in other Trinity initiatives.
If you have any questions, please speak to Ruth Crittenden or the church office.
* A PAR form is attached at the bottom of this page for your convenience. After completion, return to the church office.

Christmas Gift Boxes - an annual Trinity Outreach

Trinity Members Jane Palmer, Dawn Myers, Joanne Calvert & Marion Sinclair join Family Connexions staff.

We did it again! We raised $1260 and delivered 60 gift boxes to Family Connexions in Collingwood to support youth and teens in our area.  We focus on teenagers since they grow so quickly and don’t fit into the usual toy drive.  A special thank you to Marion Sinclair and Lori Forsythe who joined our committee this year.  As well as this annual program, 2 additional families approached our church this year.  Our entire committee came together to fill a large gift bag for each family member and we hope this made a difference for each.  Thanks to everyone who participated in this Christmas gift box program, a job well done.





An overview of some of Trinity's programs - something for everyone!

Lorraine’s Retirement Party

It was a memorable night at the Legion Saturday, May 6th,  when 145 gathered to celebrate Lorraine’s twenty-eight years as custodian at Trinity. Our thanks to Kathryn

Colantonio and her committee for all their organizing. We also thank the Legion staff and volunteers for making us feel so welcome.





Pictures from Trinity United Church's weekend away at Camp Simpresca  were there was NO AGENDA OR PLANNED PROGRAM! It was the participants' choice to come for a day, a meal, or the campfire or the entire weekend.
