Help build community

Holy Trinity is a community which works  together to accomplish meaningful acts. From the Refugee Committee, whose community care and involvement speaks for itself, to the Worship Committee and Co-ordinators, the Fallen Angles, and other musicians who create thoughtful services that are unique in our diocese, to the Alice Heap Hospitality Committee that provides wonderful and inclusive nibbles for all occasions, and the People Presence and Sunday Drop-In teams which keep the church doors open to all, and all the other individual and plural efforts that make this place vibrant, this community pulls together to make sure we are living our values.

This church building has stood as a downtown landmark for Torontonians since 1847. But more importantly, this community serves as a “heart-mark” for the people of this city.  The people of Toronto know this church. They know it for its Pride banners, for the wonderful concerts they’ve attended here, for its presence on social justice issues. They know it for the Homeless Memorial and its heritage of hospitality. They know it for the community you have fostered and fought for.

This purposeful, heart-centred, community is in need of a boost. The teams that keep our doors open to all, People Presence and Sunday Drop-In, are actively recruiting. Will you mindfully examine whether you can apply to join one of these teams? We need your commitment. We also need you to be an ambassador. We need you to tell your friends and colleagues, your family members and your neighbours. We need them and we need you to join our teams, to keep our doors open.   We need you so  we can continue the community building and presence that has been nurtured here for more than 171 years.

Fleshing out some Big Ideas

At the end of April a number of Big Ideas were put in front of the community to get the juices flowing. No decision was made, but a very simple process of stickers and markers was used to test basic enthusiasm. There was sufficient positive interest in all the ideas to be worth some further development and discussion. If you’d like to be involved in developing any of these ideas, reach out to the person whose name is on it or contact knunn@holytrinity.to and I’ll put you in touch with the right people.
