Just a reminder that Holy Trinity's 145 Annual General Meeting, for the Year Ended 2013, will be held on Sunday, February 9th, 2014. This meeting will be held following a combined service at 10:30 am. There will be no 8:00 am service that morning.
The annual report booklet will be available Feb 2nd. Copies are limited * One per family please.
This is an important day in the life of Holy Trinity as it allows us to reflect together on the past year, and also to dream about where God may be leading us both in the coming year, and beyond.
8:00 am. Book of Common Prayer Eucharist service (said) in the Chapel. This is a traditional Anglican Liturgical service.
9:45 am. 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th Sundays of the month. Prayer and Praise. This service is contemporary and evangelical in nature. Scripture, traditional and contemporary gospel music, and a homily in a relaxed atmosphere appeal to people whose faith journey has been of a less liturgical tradition. The praise music is led by Heart’s Refuge Band.
9:45 am. 4th Sunday of each month. Communion service. The liturgy of the Word is more contemporary and the service can be followed on overheads.
11:00 am. 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th Sundays of the month. Holy Communion from the Book of Common Prayer. This is a traditional Anglican Liturgy. The music leadership is provided by the Choir accompanied my Mr. Richard Greig on the pipe organ. Scripture readings, hymns and anthems, and the sermon all support our desire to “grow in faith”.
11:00 am. 4th Sunday of each month. Morning prayer. Come and hear The Word, in Scripture, music and sermon. This is a traditional Book of Common Prayer Service.
12:10 Wednesday. Book of Common Prayer Eucharist service (said) in the Chapel. This is a traditional Anglican Liturgical service.
Nursery with professional care is available to parents at both 9:45 and 11:00 am services.

Ever wonder about the inner workings of a pipe organ. The link below leads to a clip featuring the organ at Holy Trinity and it's inner workings. There's a lot more to a large pipe organ than you might think.
The present organ at Holy Trinity was constructed and installed in 1912 by the Canadian Organ COmpany. It was much smaller then than it is presently. It was revised in the '50s by Casavant, in the '60s by Hill, Norman and Beard of London, England at which time the Positiv division was added. The organ was again revised and re-winded in the '90s and a new reed stop "Chalameu" added to the Swell division at that time.
The organ has 4 Manuals (keyboards) and a Pedal board, and comprises of 60 speaking stops, 65 ranks of pipes adding up to app0roximately 4,000 pipes varying from the length of a pencil to 20 feet. The organ does indeed live up to its reputation of being the "King of Instruments" because of its vast tonal range from the quietest whisper to the "roar" possible with many stops being used at once.

One of the more noteworthy features of Holy Trinity Anglican Church is it's bell. If you're downtown when the bell is tolling you are likely to hear it, even on a busy day, from several blocks away. The remainder of this post is adapted from notes found in the old Holy Trinity guiding book.
The bell was a gift to the parish from MIss H.H. Smith in 1887. The bell weighs 1556 pounds(just over 700 kilograms).
The main rope is used to cause the bell to rock back and forth in a cradle and the bell hits a moving clapper suspended in the middle of the bell as it rocks back and forth. The bell when rung in this manner it is used to call people to worship and celebrate special events (such as when the bell was recently rung to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II).
The second rope is for tolling the bell. when it is pulled it causes a second clapper to strike the bell on its inside surface. The bell does not move or swing. We use the tolling rope to mark the death of a parishioner (at one tiime it would have been tolled once for every year that the person had lived). It rings out to proclaim a life lived in the Christian faith. It is a very moving event in the life of the Parish.
We also use the bell to ring out at the moment a couple complete their marriage vows as the priest says, "those whom God has joined together let no one put asunder."
When the bell is rung on a quiet day it can be hear within kilometers of the church.
Although the bell is of one note, a keen listener can pick up the message the bell is singing out by the way the bell is rung.
