  • Iridesce Worship at TUC The coordinator of this project, Aaron Miechkota is the guest speaker Sun. May 20.  Following the service, we will have an opportunity to meet with Aaron, ask questions and provide reflections.  Mark this date on your calendar.  You do not want to miss attending and learning more about how we all were affected by our 1988 vote in which The United Church of Canada declared that sexual orientation was not a barrier to church membership and ordination.  Add your voices to this issue so together the church across Canada can discern if and how a possible apology is needed to LGBTQ+ and two-spirit people, their family, their friends and allies.  In addition, if you so wish, please see to help you reflect and respond individually and / or directly to Iridesce.

    Hard copies of these reflection questions are available from the ushers.


Candles with Care were delivered, on behalf of the congregation, to Sydney Duncan and to Susan Delaney and family, as they experienced a recent bereavement.

Trinity’s Repeat Announcements

The Boat People by Sharon Bala is a gripping and morally complex novel about a group of refugees who survive a perilous ocean voyage to reach Canada — only to face the threat of deportation and accusations of terrorism in their new land.  Milly Malavsky and Elizabeth Brown are hosting two book studies: Sun., Apr. 29 and Sun., May 6.  Light refreshments are available.  Please sign-up if you intend to participate so we can prepare for you. 

The Big Question is rescheduled to Sun., May 20 9:30 AM Why be/come a Christian today?  Copies are available on the table at the back entrance of the Sanctuary.

Heads up Youth!  Trinity United is offering you an opportunity to get together with other youths (13 years and older) who want to think, wonder and talk about church, life and faith and how they work together; we look at God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and how to live in the world as God’s people during the four classes.  Elizabeth or Milly will be with you on Sundays at 10:45 -11:45 AM.  Mark these dates: June 3, 10, and 17.  Note the first class will be online.  Elizabeth Brown will be sending this to you sometime in mid-May.  Please let us know if you plan to attend these classes.  After taking these classes, if you wish, we will confirm you as full members of the church on Sun., June 24 and the regular 10:45 AM service.  Many of you have learned much in Sunday School Explorers already.  If you would like to build on your knowledge, reflect more on what you know, and consider becoming a member of Trinity United through the process of confirmation or baptism, please be in touch with Elizabeth  or Milly or call the church at 204-269-1632.  We will be in touch once we have your response.  Thank you for considering this offer and getting back to us.  

Electronic Recycling You can bring batteries, light bulbs, cords, and any electronics to the church and place them in the marked blue box in the narthex to be properly recycled.  Is your old TV too heavy to carry into the church?  Just call the church, leave us a message and we will be happy to come and collect it!
