In the past few weeks, Holy Trinity has been blessed by the presence of six new People Presence volunteers: Sophia, Izzy, James, Michael, Maxine, and Susan. They are a wonderful blend of students, professionals, and retirees, who have come to us mainly from the wider community. They are invigorating our open hours ministry to tourists, spiritual seekers, and regular drop-in guests. Most of these new volunteers attended a recent training in de-escalating verbal aggression which Barb Panter gave to our People Presence team and staff, and are starting to work alongside experienced volunteers in our ministry of hospitality.
