Music at Trinity United Church
Trinity United Church has a vibrant music ministry and the folks at Trinity worship joyously through music of many genres. We love the traditional hymns and we love the contemporary songs and hymns that are being written here and now. All the music is raised up to God in His praise and honour.
Yes, we are singing our songs of worship and praise. It just looks a bit different these days especially at church. However, I encourage you to sing in the rain, sing in your shower, sing in your car and sing those songs of praise and joy in your head anytime. They will bring you delight and are always a great way to pray as the words of our hymns are indeed prayers.
In our in-church services, we are sharing song through the voices of our wonderful song leaders! These folks have been great to lend their talent and time to sing our worship songs and often, to record those songs several days prior to have them ready for the virtual service. What a wonderful gift these folks have and what an amazing contribution in ministry they make to our services! Thank you to all of you who are providing this ministry.
The handbell choir is preparing for Christmas and you will be able to hear them play in services in Advent. Isn’t that great! With all safety protocols in place – masks, gloves, distance, disinfectant wipes…. we will be ringing in the season!
The senior choir is going to be rehearsing, in masks, of course and will join their voices for the first time since March as we venture into the world of masked singing with safety distances between us. You will not see them in the choir loft, however, as that is not feasible. We want to sing together so will only do so in a rehearsal setting and then record our efforts for Advent services – that is the plan!!! Plans can change so we will see how it all plays out. With God guiding us, we will find a way to sing!
If you feel comfortable and would like to sing with the Senior choir, we rehearse on Wednesday from 7:15-8:15. Please email me to register to come – email@example.com or phone the church office and Wendy will forward your message to me. I will then get back to let you know the “rules and regulations” that we have in place in our operational plan.
The Covid world of singing is different but we can always sing in our hearts a nd God will hear us!!! We are never alone – He is always listening! What a blessing!
Trinity United Church runs an active music ministry as you can read below. As we work and live within Covid restrictions, things are not the same as normal so what is written below is not currently running as it appears, but we hope that we will be again someday soon!! We will keep you posted!
