Pastoral Care Ministry is made up of many parts.
Pastoral Care Team
Hospital and Care Home visits are a major concern of the pastoral care committee. We try to support those in our congregation who are going through a stressful time or who are unable to attend services. As well as the Hospital visiting team we try to connect through cards and phone calls.
The pastoral care committee continues to respond to requests through the Trinity office and from individuals. Please keep the committee informed as to needs within our Trinity congregation; concerns such as visits, cards, phone calls, transportation to services.
Committee members are: Bob Thompson, Donna-Marie Milne, Regena Warner, Marie Morris.

Throughout the year, practitioners have offered healing sessions here at Trinity on Wednesday afternoons, at Transition House, Hospice and at the hospital. We have become very busy, often with a waiting list of receivers watching for a cancellation.
Thursday mornings, practitioners gather for self-care and practise. This is an opportunity to become more familiar with Healing Pathway techniques and, as a receiver, to contribute to our own health and well-being.
Prayer Group continues to meet every Thursday at 3:15. We follow a liturgy, prepared by Rev. Bob Thompson, read two passages of scripture and offer our prayers for people who have requested prayers by filling out a prayer card on Sunday at worship or by contacting the church office. Everyone is welcome to join us regularly or occasionally as we pray for those in need of prayer.
There is, also, a prayer chain that can be activated whenever an emergency arises.
