Christmas Week + Epiphany Surprise



Dear Trinity...


Join us next week in the lead up to Christmas Day as we keep welcoming our Savior Jesus to come into our lives.


Darkest Night: Dec 21 @ 7pmWhat is a “Darkest Night” Service? Held on the darkest night of the year (Dec 21), this evening provides an opportunity for lament and healing during a time of the year that can be very hard. With prayer, Scripture, and communion, we acknowledge that Advent begins in the dark and that it is at the point of deepest darkness that things come to life and are reborn.


Prayer Vigil: Dec 23 starting @ 7pmGet your heart ready for Christ’s coming by joining the prayer vigil leading up to Christmas. A sacred space in the church will be staffed around the clock by hosts who sit silently in it for a few hours at a time. Stop by for any length of time to rest and reflect as you set your gaze on Jesus. Get more information here.



Christmas Eve: Dec 24

5 pm  (Contemporary Music)

11 pm  (Lessons & Carols)


Trinity Church has presented this traditional King’s College Choir service to the community since 2012. It includes Scripture readings, prayers and carols sung by a choir and the congregation.


This year we are offering an earlier service at 5pm with the same scripture readings but different music.


Hope to see you there and some or all of the above!

p.s. - we still have morning services on Dec 24th.... normal times of 8:30 and 9:45am!


 

Trinity's Inaugural Epiphany House Blessing



An old Christian tradition celebrates Epiphany with a practice and house blessing known as Chalking the Doors. The chalk, as it slowly wears throughout the year, serves as a reminder that Christ dwells with us wherever we are, and that our home is a missionary outpost of His kingdom. The initials "C.M.B." can represent the names of the 3 Wise Men, but it also represents the Latin phrase Christus Mansionem Benedicat…. "May Christ Bless This House."  For several years now on Epiphany (Jan 6th) we've give out pieces of chalk and short instructions for how to do this yourself.  


But for the first time, you can request that one of our pastors come to your house on the weekend of Epiphany and pronounce a blessing on your home as we chalk the doors together!


Just sign up using this form, and fill out your home address. We'll be in touch about when we can visit your home and walk through a short liturgy together.


May Christ bless your home in 2024.
