Welcome to the Regional Ministry of Hope!

I’d like to welcome you to our Regional Ministry, comprised of  three Anglican Churches, Trinity, Blyth, St. John’s, Brussels and St. Paul’s-Trinity Wingham.

Our worship services—like our buildings–reflect a mixing and blending of the traditional and more modern, with music and singing an important and integral part of our worship. The Book of Alternative Services Communion Service provides the mainstay of Sunday worship, alternated with Morning Prayer Services with special seasonal services  Christmas Carol Sing, Easter Festival of Lessons and Songs, annual Blessings of the Animals, and “Blue Christmas” services  to name a few) regularly interspersed throughout the year.

Trinity Blyth hosts a monthly Contemplative Service, Songs & Silence at 7 p.m. on the last Sunday of the Month, September thru June

Christian Education begins with the Sunday service homily time, with sermons that center around the stories of the bible, and how they make sense for us as 21st century people. Through-out the year we have topical ‘Sermon Series’ allowing opportunities to delve deeper into specific topics or biblical concepts, helping us in our understanding and response to living ‘the way’ of Christ.

Also interspersed through-out the year are opportunities to grow your faith by joining a bible study –often including DVDs or other media or perhaps join one of our book studies—either in person or on-line.
Booklets with suggested daily bible readings and prayers are available for anyone who wishes to take home.
As you continue reading through our “Welcome Booklet” , we hope you will be inspired by the ways in which God’s Holy Spirit is moving through our dedicated and vibrant communities and by the ways people find hope and friendship in our church families; and so, be inspired to join us in worship and ministry.

Outreach events pepper each church’s schedule through out the year, and include Food bank donations, Concerts for the Huron Residential Hospice, Caring Coats Campaign,  Easter outreach for shut-ins, St. Nicholas Eve Children’s event, BBQ for Mental Health, I Love First Nations shoe-box campaign, Mitten & Hat tree for the Huron Children’s Bureau, Birthday Cake Ministry, and Trinity’s Monthly Two Toonie Tuesday Lunches which supports the North Huron Foodshare, and other local charities.

If I can be helpful in anyway, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me!

In Christ’s service,
JoAnn Todd
Rector
