Music plays a very important role in every service at Plymouth-Trinity. Music is varied in style, origin and language, although it consists largely of hymns from Voices United sung in English. Hymns and anthems are a mix of classical and modern, with rounds or contemporary CD Christian music included occasionally. Solo organ pieces, including the postlude, are incorporated into worship.
Organist Leslie Young has been with us since September 2004, after the retirement of our former organist of 20 years, Pamela Gill Eby.
Plymouth-Trinity benefits from a Casavant organ that was originally built in 1907 and electrified in 1925. It is a 3-manual instrument with 28 stops and 1,200 pipes. It was rebuilt in 1987 by Guilbault-Therien of St. Hyacinthe, creating a brighter sound better suited to many music styles. It is a powerful instrument; full organ is not used on most Sundays. See the 1987 Sherbrooke Record Article for more information on the restoration of the organ.
Plymouth-Trinity also has a Steinway grand piano, often used in worship for more modern music. A second upright piano and an electronic keyboard are used in rehearsals or entertainment at events. The sound system has been used to play analog and digital recordings.

Ruth Elkas Atto, who died in May 2016, was a member of our community of faith, and more than that also a nurse, a nursing instructor and tireless volunteer. Her work in healthcare (including as a member of the CHUS Users' committee) has been commemorated by the naming of the entry area of the Fleurimont campus of the CHUS as Place Ruth-Elkas-Atto. A plaque in her honour was unveiled on Wednesday, September 26.

Join us at Plymouth-Trinity for a family-friendly worship experience. We have a children's corner in the sanctuary with craft supplies and helpful volunteers. Some Sundays there is also a 30-minute children's programme during worship-time for kids of all ages.
A reminder to please make sure your car does not cross the yellow lines outlining the bike path in the church parking lot.
