Sunday Worship Happening On-line Only Until Further Notice

In keeping with community efforts to minimize group gatherings, in-person worship is suspended for the time being.

You can still watch the sermon or get a printed text.

• Weekly sermons will be available on youtube.  Here is a link to our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCifQQLFZrDcGyY-J3xjDoKA
• If you would like an electronic copy of the text of the sermon and a link to the video sent to you, please email the church and ask to be added to the sermon distribution list.
• Print copies of the sermon will also be available by mail. Anyone wishing to be mailed a sermon should contact us.  Call the church office for phone numbers or email any staff person. We are working remotely.

You can still connect with the Trinity community at “church-time” (10:30 to 11:30 a.m.) on Sunday mornings via computer, tablet or phone.

• On Sunday mornings this week from 10:30 to 11:30, we will meet via an on-line meeting platform Zoom to check in with one another, hear a story from the Bible, talk about it with one another and pray together.  Contact the church office if you need the password or help getting on.

If you have a computer, tablet (Ipad), or smart phone, you can connect by clicking on the following link: https://zoom.us/j/6460700716?pwd=SW9RZDBYVTRpekc0ZWFhWkZ3bXN4Zz09   If it is the first time you have used Zoom on that machine, you may get asked to download Zoom. Follow the instructions to download and say Yes to opening Zoom meetings and to computer audio. Contact Beth if you would like help getting on.

• There is also a phone in option. You will be able to hear audio but not see video. You can dial 1-438-809-7799 (this is a Quebec number, unfortunately there is no local number available for Portage la Prairie) and then when the automatic voice asks you to, enter the meeting id 646 070 0716#. Then enter the password. When asked for a participant id, just press the # key again.

Church Office

The church office is re-opened, but with social distancing in effect.  Office hours are Monday – Friday from 9-12 and 1-4.

Stay Tuned

Watch this space for continuing updates about how to connect with us differently in this time when we are encouraged to show love for our neighbours by not being in the same room with them.  We are the church whether or not we are in the same physical space together.

As an Affirming Ministry of The United Church of Canada, we are passionate about inclusion.  Jesus loved everyone and so do we!  We celebrate people of all gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities, races, ethnicities, ages, economic circumstances and family configurations.  Whoever you are and whatever your life story, know that we welcome you to be part of our faith community in whatever way suits you.

Keep up to date with our Facebook group (“Trinity United Church Portage la Prairie“) or find us on Twitter (@churchportage) or Instagram (“trinityportage”).

We hope you enjoy our website.  If you have any questions or would like more information about  anything, please contact us through our Contact page.
