Music

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.

Instruments

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.

News & Events

The Congregational Annual Meeting

The Congregational Annual Meeting will take place Sunday, February 16.

Apart from hearing team reports and approving the budget for 2020, we will be electing members to the Church Board. In preparation, the nominating committee invites anyone interested in representing the congregation on the Board to submit their name either by calling the church office and leaving a message (819-346-6373), or by speaking or sending an email to Jack Eby (jeby at ubishops.ca), Janet McBurney (janetjammcb at gmail.com), or Ann Fowlis (fowlis at sympatico.ca).

The Board meets about every 2 months; members are expected to attend, participate in the discussions and vote on financial and pastoral matters.

Call for nominations

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.

You can find United Church job and volunteer opportunities here. Check back regularly!

Children at P-T

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!
