Holy Trinity Church News

It is that time of year when parents, either with joy or sadness, send their children off to school and students look forward to meeting new friends and getting back together with old ones. Holy Trinity has been quite active, working with children while they were home for the summer.

For the tenth year, Cathy Erskine and Mary Poole directed a Theatre camp in the church hall to teach inclusion and to be a safe place to have fun, and to be involved with others. 25 participants put on the performance of “Giants in the Sky” at the St. George Community Centre before an audience of 150. Another year of friendship, music and fun was had by all!

On the Civic Holiday weekend, we participated in the community garage sales by serving hotdogs and drinks and hosting 15 trunk sales, plus the church’s own garage and bake sale. Despite the rain, people still kept coming for bargains!

Vacation Bible school was held on the church property, with the theme of “Weird Animals”. We had a full house of 30 eager, energetic youngsters who had fun interacting with each other. The underlying message of Jesus’ unconditional love was incorporated through everything the children did. The youngsters learned that each of us is loved by Jesus, even when they are different, even when they feel left out, even when they do wrong and even when they don’t understand. Ron Robb, an engineer, did experiments which fascinated all those present. Fun crafts were an important part of the day, and of course so were the fun games and activities which burned off some excess energy.

Once again, this summer, through the generosity of our parishioners, we were able to buy and fill 35 backpacks with school supplies and lunch containers, which were given out to the Cambridge Food Bank to help those in need. There are always others around us who need support.

Early Years is back again in full swing, in the church basement on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:00 to 11:30. If you have a child from birth to 6 years, come and interact with other moms, dads and caregivers and let your child feel connected with other children in a fun, learning environment.

Apple peeling, making and rolling pie dough, putting together 150 pies and boxes and baking the pies was a great time for the young and older in our church to interact and work together for the annual Apple Fest. All the pies got sold within a couple of hours!

To kick off the fall season and enjoy the last moments of summer, we worshipped outdoors near the church gardens on the 17th of September. A focus on the season of creation, in particular the gifts from the land God provides us, was our focus on this Sunday. Worship was followed by a potluck lunch of delicious salads, desserts and hot meat!

There will be a blessing of pets in honour of St. Francis, the patron saint of animals and the environment at 4:00 p.m. on October 4th. This “Blessing of the Pets” is open to the community! Bring your leashed or contained pet or even a photo and and join us in giving thanks for our animal companions and ask God’s continued blessings on them. In the past, we have even had alpacas!

The youth from Grade 7 to Grade 12, is gearing up to offer a number of fun activities to raise money as the group prepares to join the CLAY (Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth) gathering in Thunder Bay the summer of 2018 Watch for upcoming events!

On December 3rd, a group from the church is excitedly looking forward to going to see the play, “Joseph” at Theatre Aquarius in Hamilton. This should be a very enjoyable afternoon together.

We always welcome new people to attend our activities and of course to worship with us on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. Hope to see you soon!
