We Need Your Skills, Gifts, and Help!

Many of our ministries are beginning again in person and we can start to look forward with anticipation to new opportunities for Trinity this year. But we need volunteers to help so that we can continue with our important ministries, keep our properties in good shape and keep our financial situation stable! Especially at this time the following is needed:

Second Hand Shop

A valuable fundraiser for Trinity and a wonderful outreach to the community, we cannot keep going without more helpers. Each Saturday morning 2 persons are required to open and run the shop. A  small core of volunteers do as much as they can, but more volunteers are needed to help lighten the load, either regularly or occasionally.  In April the shop had to close on two Saturdays when staffing requirements could not be met. Anyone interested in this volunteer opportunity is asked to speak with Sheryl MacPhail as soon as possible.  Note: We volunteers have fun working together in the shop, chatting with those who come in, and seeing folks happy that they found something they need or love, at a real bargain price!

The time for Garden Maintenance is here!

We are very appreciative of the dedicated volunteers who have again stepped up to take care of lawn mowing and trimming this season.

The garden beds also need tending to keep our grounds looking neat and cared for. There are a few small sections of garden that need to be ‘adopted’ by persons who will take care of them this season, i.e.  spring tidy-up, weeding and trimming. Anyone who can do this is asked to speak with a churchwarden. We are grateful to the volunteer who offered to water the gardens again this season.

TARTS (Trinity Anglican Refreshments Team) needs co-ordinator(s) and helpers for our various food functions – funerals, occasional lunches both after church and other receptions. 

Sunday School – Volunteers needed to facilitate Sunday School a maximum of once a month. Lesson and materials will be provided! Contact Elizabeth Annand.

Worship – We need sides people, readers, worship technology people (see below for more details), and servers.

Streaming

As many of you know, and have participated in, Trinity live streams services on Facebook every week. Stewart is the only person at the church who can stream the services, so if he is not feeling well, or is not available on a Sunday, the services will not be streamed. If Trinity is to continue streaming on a consistent basis, we need others to learn how to do it.

The streaming role includes running the projection in the church as both software programs run on the same computer to enable the words on the TV screen to show up in the live stream.

Technical computer skills are required. Stewart has been able to simplify the use of the streaming software in combination with the projection software, but there is some switching back and forth and there are a few things to be cognisant of in the process. More importantly is how to troubleshoot and correct if (when) things go wrong. Stewart will provide training.

Streaming setup and testing happens by 9:30 am every Sunday morning, giving us time to adjust if problems arise before the stream goes live at 9:55 am.

If you have interest in this ministry opportunity, please let Rev. Dana or Stewart know.

Social Media Marketing

Are you a social media guru?  Do you have an interest in helping Trinity build our online presence?  We need to find people who understand how social media works and how to leverage the different platforms.  Currently we utilize Facebook and our website.  What more could we do to advertise our events and programs at Trinity?  Please join us as we discover new ways to market our church. Contact Cynthia Riley.

If you have any skills or experience that could be of help, e.g. baking, sandwich making, odd jobs, minor repairs, general upkeep,  etc. please contact Gretchen Dewhirst to put your name on the list of people we may call upon, with a contact email and/or best phone number.
