We’re gearing up for our Shrove Tuesday pancake supper!
This annual fundraiser will be held at Plymouth-Trinity from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, February 25. The cost will be $10 per person. And all proceeds will go to sending youth to the United Church Rendezvous in Calgary in August.
Please come, and eat your fill of pancakes and maple syrup!
For those who wish to stay, supper will be followed at 7 p.m. by an Ash Wednesday service.
The United Church of Canada has released a letter stating “our Settler commitment to be followers of Christ”.
“As The United Church of Canada, we are Christian communities of faith made up of many people, some who are Indigenous and some who are Settler. We respect each other. We have adopted the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and are committed to the paths of truth and right relations. We recognize and respect the traditional spirituality of Indigenous peoples. In the spirit of these commitments, we as Moderator and National Indigenous Elders’ Council, are writing to you together today.” Find the rest of the letter here.
The General Council Nominations Committee has launched a call for nominations for several vacancies.
People across the church are invited to express their interest, or nominate others who have the gifts to serve well in these leadership roles. The Nominations Committee welcomes hearing from anyone, and particularly encourages those from groups which have been traditionally marginalized in our church, including (but not limited to) youth and young adults, Indigenous and racialized members, those active in francophone ministry, and people who identify as disabled.

Join us at Plymouth-Trinity for a family-friendly worship experience. Many Sundays feature a carefully planned children's church program, intended for those 3 and up. We also have a children's corner in the sanctuary with craft supplies and helpful volunteers for younger children, and for all kids on the Sundays when there is no children's church. Check the calendar elsewhere on this website to find out the schedule!
