In his Lent message, United Church of Canada Moderator Richard Bott says that Ash Wednesday isn’t only about lament and death—it’s also about celebrating life because the two are so deeply intertwined. The ashes of Ash Wednesday are a reminder of all the life you are called to live.
For the 40 days of Lent, you are invited to join in celebrating life each day. Watch the Moderator's full message here.
Visit the United Church worship page for additional Lenten resources.

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.
We are called to be the Church…to love and serve others.
Discussion about COVID-19 is growing as confirmed cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) continue to spread. As a church, we have prepared the Emergency Plan to help communities of faith plan ahead for contingencies that may or may not arise, realizing that planning ahead is a way to reduce anxiety.
We urge communities of faith to respond to COVID-19 with compassion, prevention, and prayer. You will find the complete statement here.
The United Church of Canada has also published Tips and resources for members and congregations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The moderator of the United Church has a very direct message for us all: God is with us. We are not alone.
In related news, as coronavirus outbreaks are reported around the globe, partners in China thank the United Church for continued prayers and support.
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!
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!
In order to reduce clutter and confusion in the building and to ensure your belongings are returned to you (or at least are safe) please label all items you bring to church.
Lost and found: Have you misplaced something in the church? A Lost & Found box can be found in the church hall, right next to the elevator.
