Dear TSP community, neighbours, and friends,
We are very happy that Trinity-St.Paul's has been reopened for public bookings of our facilities and spaces since February 7, 2022. Masks are still mandatory inside the building, and we ask everyone to continue to maintain social distancing. While the government has started to ease some restrictions, TSP is also allowed to maintain its own safety protocols and will do so according to the schedule below. In-person worship has also resumed. We are also now allowing groups to bring snacks into their booked rooms (please not in the common areas).
Here is our COVID-19 reopening schedule:
May 1 - Masks still required indoors for all activities.
Concerts - 100% of indoor capacity allowed in Jeanne Lamon Hall - proof of vaccination mandatory for 100% capacity events in the concert hall.
Other room capacities to increase to 50% of their normal capacity.
June 1 - Masks still required in all common areas, but can be removed for activities inside rooms only. All other COVID-19 protocols will cease if the following conditions are met:
- Ontario COVID-19 hospitalization numbers drop below 300 and sociological parameters indicate it is safe to do so.
July 1 - Masks still appreciated being worn indoors.
The front door will remain locked for now - you must still be buzzed in by reception.
Please see our full COVID-19 Safety Plan here: https://bit.ly/39jc9u0
While we are optimistic that things are improving, we acknowledge that we are still in the tail end of the pandemic with health consequences for some and we are taking a safety-forward and cautious approach to reopening. We appreciate all of your patience and continued support, and we hope you have an amazing spring!

Annual General Meeting
The annual general meeting of TSP will be held on March 13. We will want to have the annual report available to members by February 27. Therefore we are asking that all those who are responsible for providing content for the report have their contributions to the administrator no later than February 6. If this is not possible for you, please contact Linda Padfiield (email@example.com) to discuss alternatives.
Something New in the Heart Garden
Please take a look at the Heart Garden. There are now four beautiful benches to sit on! All are welcome to sit and enjoy! Lyn loved children and justice. Last Spring, before she died, Lyn asked what was needed in the Garden. A place to sit was missing and so Greg Gaetz, Lyn’s husband, lovingly made the benches in her name. As we sit in the Heart Garden, we will remember the children and our beloved Lyn.

TSP Children’s Church
TSP Children’s Church takes place every Sunday on Zoom from 10:30-11:30 am. Three classes are available led by paid and professionally trained staff. The first class is for ages 4-8, the second is for ages 9-12, and the youth group is for ages 13 to 17. Nursery care is available in church every Sunday. For more information, contact TSP’s Children’s Church Coordinator Douglas Hurst at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Worship and Faith Formation Committee would like to invite you to one of two weekly exegesis groups: Monday evening on Zoom from 6:00-7:00; and Tuesday afternoon on Zoom from 10:30-11:30. Together we’ll reflect on these ancient teachings and how they are relevant in our lives today. Not all of us are familiar with the Bible, but in exploring it together we will each bring our own views and discover many new insights, and hopefully, feel supported in our everyday lives. We will also consider how our insights might pertain to the life of our church communally. All are welcome.
We will focus primarily on the readings for the coming Sunday. Please find the lectionary at the following link:

Worship for January:
As many of you know already, there will be no in-person worship for the month of January.
This suspension of in-person worship in the building will likely continue for as long as case numbers and data continue to make live worship to risky.
We strongly urge all who are able to get their booster shots and take every precaution necessary to be safe in the New Year.
Our current plan for worship is to live-stream, on Zoom, services from the Sanctuary where Cheri, Brad, participating soloists, as well as readers and prayer leaders, and the audio/visual team will all be masked and following every possible safety protocol.
You will continue to use the same link on Sundays, which will be sent out before 930 am, on the day.
If you have announcements for future weeks!
