Big ideas and strategic directions

We are all aware that we are in a process of discerning our future at Holy Trinity. The strategic planning committee has developed a process that will let us choose an operational and governance model that fits who we are going forward.

Strategic Planning next step

We’re having a community meeting on Saturday, April 28 from 10am to 1pm to present three possible staffing and governance models from the strategic review process. We hope that everyone who considers themselves a part of this community will take part if possible–whether part of Refugee Committee, Music Mondays, People Presence, Sunday worship, or any other part of our shared life.

Big Ideas

A scribbly heart in a lightbulbWe would also like to bring more hopes and dreams for what we do to light. This is an opportunity for you, on your own, or in collaboration with a few other people, to outline an idea for what we do or who we are. We are thinking of something bigger than one event, more like a project or direction for 3-5 years. If you wish to participate in this process of brainstorming, please share your “big idea” at this link (it’s a Google Form, so you’ll leave our site). You can submit more than one idea, don’t feel restricted. We will have a process to get a sense of which ideas have community traction. Prioritized ideas could be developed further. There is no commitment at this stage, just an opportunity to put forward what you are thinking. the deadline for submission in this process is April 20, 2018.

 

Poem in Honour of Matthew Dolmage

Matt Dolmage at his keyboard in Orillia

This poem is to honour Matthew Dolmage, who was born April 2, 1974 and who died February 21, 2004.

His mother Marilyn wrote it, and would like to recognize all the ways Matthew’s memory remains among the people and within the sanctuary of The Church of the Holy Trinity.

Matthew heard the birds in Bach.
So the piano trills in the Prelude in E flat minor
Make me smile on a February morning,
Remembering how Matthew loved bird music.
