Keep up to date with news and events happening at Plymouth-Trinity! For upcoming church and community events, please see the Calendar.

Children at P-T, new time and place!

The time and place of our children's time has changed for the new year!

Youth and Young Adult worker Shanna Bernier hosts a weekly Children's Church broadcast, LIVE, on a new Facebook page, Children's Church At Home , on Sundays. The time has also changed! It's at 9:30 a.m., Eastern -- a half-hour later.

Children's Time is also recorded, so you can watch it at any time.

The church building is closed, but we hope to also soon invite you in person to 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!

Youth and young adults at P-T

If you, or a young person you know of would like a place to chat, hang-out, check-in and see friends from across the region....

send them the info for this ZOOM Youth Group on Thursdays at 6:30 pm EST.

Contact Shanna Bernier for details about how to connect: sbernier@united-church.ca

COVID-19: God is with us: We are not alone

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.

P-T on YouTube

Did you miss the January 24 Plymouth-Trinity worship service? Or perhaps you are looking for some words of comfort during these complicated times...

Whatever the reason -- may be you miss us! -- the Sunday, January 24 worship service is available here on YouTube.

The United Church’s New General Secretary

The United Church of Canada is pleased to announce the appointment of the Rev. Michael Blair as its new General Secretary beginning November 1, 2020.

The role of General Secretary, General Council is a permanent position, providing leadership in the direction, management, and coordination of the affairs of the church working in close collaboration with the Moderator, who is elected every three years as the church’s spiritual leader and spokesperson.

You’ll find more details here!

A recent interview in Broadview magazine offers a glimpse into our new General Secretary’s vision and dreams of the path ahead for the United Church of Canada.

Encountering the Unknowable Mystery We Call God 

United Church of Canada General Secretary Nora Sanders writes about ways faith is interwoven with the natural world:

Walking the dogs early on a windy morning, I look up and see about twenty-five large birds gliding in big circles without moving their wings as they ride gracefully on the air currents. Such a beautiful sight.

On the ground, turkey vultures are far from beautiful..... Read the complete column here.

The joy of music

Looking for hymns to sooth the soul, or to celebrate your faith? Here is a list of links to hymns (en francais).

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!

Items and belongings

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.
