Last year, a student from Fort Richmond Collegiate came up with an idea to help those who were feeling alone and wanting to talk during COVID. They are bringing “Calls for Comfort” back this year. Supported by the Victoria General Foundation and Victoria Lifeline, supervised by Patti Berube, the Fort Garry Seniors’ Resource Coordinator, Calls for Comfort pairs trained high school students with seniors for a 30 minute phone call, once a week for 6 weeks beginning in February. It’s a confidential, friendly way to connect and be reminded someone cares. If you or someone you know would like to take part, please contact Patti at (204 792 1913) and see the poster attached to this email. Thanks to Stephanie for bringing this great initiative to our attention!

We need your help! This is the time of year when we search for folks who are willing to serve Trinity in the many volunteer opportunities available. We wonder if you will prayerfully consider where you might offer your gifts of time, talent and skills to enable ministry and mission to happen. 

The Nominations committee is looking for folks to serve on the following committees; a short description is provided which is not exhaustive but does give you an idea of what they do:

Deputy Chair of the Board – you would share this position and work with another person to learn to chair the board; meets 8 times a year on the 4th Wednesday evening with an Executive meeting the Wednesday before; is a member of the Executive which usually meets 8 times a year; participates in the discussion and decision making of the board; 

Board Secretary: you would attend and take minutes at the board meeting following United Church guidelines and ensure they are properly saved and stored at Trinity; before the meeting, you would receive reports and send out an agenda and any reports.

Sermon by phone: Listen to the recording of Sunday worship each week by calling a local phone number (204-410-1384). Please share this information with your friends who don’t have internet access; the recording is uploaded on Thursdays and is available until the following Wednesday.  
Know that we are praying for each one of you as you find your way through this time. May you know God’s presence and peace with you as we continue to move through this new reality,


Following a meeting on December 23, the Board prayerfully decided to cancel all in person worship and have staff work from home except for essential tasks. If you need to access the building, please call Elizabeth (204 275 0014), Irma (204 232 2826) or Steve in the office (204 269 1632). Trinity United Church continues to offer weekly You tube services; Sunday School kits for at-home Sunday School; monthly Zoom gatherings for senior Sunday School/Youth Group, as well as weekly/monthly programs such as walking group, Yoga and Bible Study.

IMPORTANT PROVISO: The above Motion must be in full compliance with current and future provincial Public Health Orders.
