Our worship service is online every Sunday at 10 am, at Facebook.www.facebook.com/trinitybradford/live/
You do not need to be a member of Facebook to see this. The Sunday morning service outline can be found on the website under “Virtual Worship”. You can download it from there. This will hopefully allow you to follow along and participate more fully.
If you would like to attend a Sunday morning in-person worship service please pre-register at least a day in advance via the following link: https://reopen.church/r/iRudYx1r
In these uncertain times we cannot be sure if or when the church may have to return to online worship only. We are watching closely and when changes are necessary we will inform the congregation.

A few chairs will be set up inside, maintaining appropriate social distancing. If you come, please wear your mask. Copies of “News from the Pews”, the Sunday morning prayer service outline, and assigned 2021 offering envelopes are available. And on December 3 you may pick up your Christmas letter from Rev. Dana.
Sundays, December 6 and 13 – A Virtual Carol Sing! We have prepared two videos full of Christmas carols, one for each evening! You will find us on Facebook at 7:30 pm each of the two evenings (you do not have to be a member of Facebook to access it). We hope you will sing along with Barb, Bill, and Ellen as Margaret plays the organ, Rev. Dana announces the carols, and Stewart has worked his magic to put it all together so that we can share it with you!
Sunday, December 13 – If giving December donations for Outreach we would ask that they be received in the office by this date to allow time to process and send cheques to the organizations before year end. See page 3.

Sunday, December 20 – Churches of Bradford Nativity Tour. This will be a 7-stop, drive-by Nativity Story, 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm.
