We Need Your Skills, Gifts, and Help!

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:

Refreshments after the service

We have resumed refreshments after worship, but only as people signup as hosts. There is a signup sheet in the Upper Room. 

Hosts are asked to bring and serve the refreshments, and clean up as required. There is small refrigerator on the table in the Upper Room to keep beverages cold, thanks to the donation from Bonnie Connolly.  There are also reusable cups, in keeping with our commitment at the vestry meeting two years ago to reduce or eliminate our use of disposable products. There are compostable coffee cups if you prefer. 

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!

Saturday, October 1 – Fall garden clean-up – Starting at 9 am. We need volunteers to come and help. Please come if you can, even if you can come for part of the morning. Every bit of help is valued.

Soup Sale

Our Soup Sale will be back again this fall! We need volunteers to help make soups and rolls! We are looking to start in November. It would be once a month from November to March.

If you have a favorite soup that you would love to share with others, there will be a sign-up sheet at the church or you can email Elizabeth.

If you don’t know how to make soup, but would like to help in some way, Elizabeth will make a soup if you buy the ingredients!  Our Soup Fundraiser did really well last year, and we would like to have it throughout the winter this year.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Any questions, please reach out to Elizabeth

Calling All Crafters!  The Krafty Knitters are looking for “Santa’s Helpers” to make items for our craft stall. There are projects for all skill levels and we will provide you with yarn, supplies and a pattern. Thank you for your time, patience and caring.

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.


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.
