Sunday Mornings at Holy Trinity

We worship together every Sunday at 10:30 AM

The service includes:

  • Readings, not always exclusively Biblical
  • Music on organ, piano, and sometimes with a live band
  • Prayers, spoken and sung
  • A time of sharing community news and holding that news up in prayer
  • Eucharist, sometimes known as communion or Lord’s Supper

During the service separate programming is offered for younger people. It explores themes of Social Justice, Faith Formation, Biblical Stories and the participants questions.

Sometimes the service is followed by a Forum. This is an opportunity for conversation and education on a specific topic. The 2016 schedule is still under development.

Upcoming Sundays look like this:

Breakfast at 8:00 AM, Bible Study 9:00 AM, Worship 10:30 AM

  • February 7 – Transfiguration Sunday, followed by Pancake lunch. Faith Formation for young people with Merylie Houston
  • February 14 – Lent I
  • February 21 – Lent II Worship with Fallen Angles band and Faith Formation for young people with Merylie Houston
  • February 28 – Lent III
  • March 6 – Lent IV
  • March 13 – Lent V
  • March 20 – Palm Sunday

Mary’s Song


This service is on opportunity to delve into Mary’s song musically, emotionally, and physically. The worship leadership will be moving from place to place and we invite you to participate in as many ways as you feel comfortable. We recognize that this does not fit our familiar pattern, but hope the richness of words, images, and actions will offer much to your spiritual experience this morning.

The service will be in 4 movements:

  1. Relationship (Family/community/gathering). Who do you run to? Who do you talk to?
  2. Revolution/Re-creation (Justice). “The arc of the universe bends toward justice.”
  3. Redress/Reconciliation (Jubilee). What is a good thing?
  4. Response (Action). How do we respond? What are we to do?

Cantemus Singers Concert – December 5 7:30 PM

Cantemus Dec 2015 posterIn our upcoming program “Gloria in Excelsis Deo”,  Cantemus Singers explore the delightfully varied and glorious Christmas music of the Spanish and Austrian courts of the 16th century.  Lively Spanish villancicos (folk carols) by Encina and Cabezon contrast with the serene polyphony of Counter-Reformation composers Tomas Luis Victoria (Christe Redemptor Omnium) and Francisco Guerrero (Magnificat from the Vespers of the Three Kings).  Familiar German carols stand side-by-side with joyful motets by rarely heard Vienna-based masters, Jacob Handl, Philipp de Monte and Jacob Clemens non Papa.  A highlight of our program is Mateo Flecha’s ensalada “La Negrina”, that mixes Spanish and African–inspired folksong into a spirited Christmas entertainment.

The concerts take place in two venues.   On Saturday December 5th at 7:30 p.m., the choir will perform at the Church of the Holy Trinity in the Eaton Centre.    The choir’s second performance will take place the day after, on Sunday afternoon, December 6th at 3:00 p.m. at St. Aidan’s Anglican Church, 70 Silver Birch Ave. at Queen St. East. Tickets are $20 general admission, with children under 12 free.  They are available at Centre 55 (97 Main St., from Nov. 1st), at the door or by calling 416-578-6602 to have tickets set aside for pick-up.   VISA and Amex accepted at Centre 55.

These are benefit concerts to raise money for Community Centre 55’s Share-a-Christmas program that provides Christmas food hampers and toys to over 900 needy families in Toronto’s east end.  We hope you can join us to help make the holidays better for those less fortunate than ourselves.  Cantemus Singers will donate one quarter of the ticket receipts to this worthy cause.
