Interested in Worship and Music?

If so, we would love to have you aboard!

We are aiming to revive the Worship and Music Committee now that TLC has resumed regular in-person worship services. The committee will focus on caring for worship supplies, setup, and planning throughout the year; usher recruitment and training; and developing a vision for worship here at TLC going forward.

If you feel called to share in this ministry, please contact Pastor Erin.

Overnight Shelter Now Open at Trinity

Trinity Lutheran Church is proud to partner again with the Mustard Seed Society in offering a warm and safe shelter to those who don’t have a place to call home. The overnight shelter is now open, and it will operate until the spring of 2023.

The Mustard Seed Society has a great deal of experience running shelters, and we expect the overall impact on church activities to be minimal. We would like to assure our members that Mustard Seed and Trinity take the safety of shelter guests and building users very seriously. The janitors contracted by the Mustard Seed Society will deep clean all the areas used by the shelter every day. Trinity’s team of janitors will ensure that the other spaces in the building, including the Sanctuary, are also as clean as possible.

Helping those in need lies at the core of Trinity’s ministry. We feel blessed to be able to be part of this noble project and thank you for your understanding and cooperation!

Community Services at The Neighbour Centre

The Neighbour Centre, operated by the Mustard Seed Society and located very close to Trinity at 10015 – 81 Avenue NW, is a great resource hub for the homeless community in Old Strathcona. They offer a wide variety of services, from hot lunches, showers, and laundry to computer and phone access, employment, mental health addictions, and dentist support. For a comprehensive schedule of the Neighbour Centre, please click here.

Introducing Our New Conference Room

We have renovated the former Youth Room on the second floor and turned it into a beautiful conference room. The walls have been painted, the carpet has been steam-cleaned, and new tables have been purchased. We also plan on buying some new chairs.

Two 12-Step support groups will hold their weekly meetings in the room (on Thursdays and Fridays), and Bethel Mandarin Church will worship in there on Sunday mornings. The yoga group started by our late member Camilla Witt also showed interest in using the room. When available, the new conference room will be open to occasional rentals.

One of our members has graciously made a donation to help offset the renovation costs, but other donations are welcome at this time.

The youth will still have a space at Trinity, in the former Council Room, also located on the second floor.

Trinity’s Masking Policy

The Church Council has decided to formally amend the current COVID policy regarding wearing face masks. Trinity’s new policy is that wearing face masks in worship or at Trinity gatherings is optional (most recently the policy recommended face masks be worn by all). We still encourage worship or group leaders to consider masking when serving others personally, and we continue to encourage members who are feeling unwell to consider participating in events virtually rather than in person. Thank you for continuing to safeguard the health and well-being of our community.
