In This Time of COVID-19, TSP’s Ministry Continues

Message from Colin Phillips, Chair of the TSP Church Board:

In the first verse of her hymn “Will Your Anchor Hold” Priscilla Owens asks ‘Will your anchor drift, or firm remain?’ TSP certainly is an anchor in the lives of many; a concrete expression of a faith in a loving and just God, a workplace with a decent wage, a place to make art and social change. Our ability to be that anchor depends largely on our ability to be a financially sustainable congregation that responds to the needs of our staff and partners.

The quietness of the building does not mean we stop being a community that worships God, seeks justice and cares for one another.

HOW TO MAKE MY OFFERING DURING COVID-19?

There are several ways to contribute to the economic health of our TSP community of Faith, Justice and the Arts. During COVID-19, the following options are available:

1. Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR)

The most efficient, reliable, and cost-effective way to support TSP locally is by PAR. You can also use PAR to make offerings to the Mission and Service Fund (M&S) of the United Church of Canada. A set amount will be withdrawn from your bank account each month. Please email Sumiko Jin (sumikojin@rogers.com) if you would like to change your offering amount during COVID-19 or to enrol in pre-authorized remittance (PAR). Please click here to download the PAR authorization form.

2. By Cheque

If you usually give by cheque, or would like to make a special offering, please send your cheques by mail to:

TSP Treasurer
110 Barton Avenue
Toronto, ON M6G 1P9

3. Online through CanadaHelps

We also accept donations through our website. We use the services of CanadaHelps, who process your donation, forward it to us, and immediately issue you a tax receipt. Please click here to make your donation through CanadaHelps.

4. Interac e-Transfer (NEW)

We are now able to accept e-Transfers that are sent to tspdeposit@trinitystpauls.ca. Please set the security question and answer to something relevant to TSP. Examples would be “Carols by blank” and the answer would be “Candlelight”, or “Cheri’s last name” “DiNovo”. Alternatively, you can email the answer to tsp@trinitystpauls.ca.

5. Special Offerings are welcomed

If you would like to support TSP in other ways, please contact our Treasurer, Bob Savaria, at bsavaria@sympatico.ca.

Our Mission

Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church seeks to be an inclusive and affirming Christian community — living out our faith individually and in our life together, engaging the world locally and globally for the sake of justice and peace, and striving to be a centre for faith, justice and the arts.

Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church is an Affirming congregation of the United Church of Canada.

We believe that all persons are equal before God; that the miracle of God’s creation is manifested through our many differences; and that racism is a sin and violates God’s desire for humanity.

As a Centre for Faith, Justice and the Arts (CFJA) we are committed to:

* Developing new partnerships with arts, justice and community groups.
* Deepening our understanding of how faith, justice-making and artistic endeavours can interact and enliven one another and be a source of great creativity and hope.
* Creating a place of hospitality and community.

Ethical Investment

Trinity St. Paul’s holds investments in United Church of Canada Foundation and Oikocredit.
