Message from the Council of Trinity United Church

Being part of the life of Bowmanville in one form or another since before Confederation, Trinity has represented a constant tradition for many generations. Some traditions may have existed for the purpose of bringing us to this very point in time – preparing us for something new and exciting. Our community is expanding and evolving. Are there new traditions growing in our community at this moment?

Council works with our Minister and the devoted members of our Council committees to serve the community within our congregation and the community outside our church walls.  Our combined efforts have the potential to do the traditional work of the church and some different and emerging ministries as well.

Heather Morton, Chair of Congregational Council


Message from the Minister of Trinity United Church

It is a privilege and a blessing to be part of this spiritual community. It’s a place where we can go deeper when confronted with the everyday joys and challenges of what it means to respond to God’s call to be the church in our time and place.

Scripture tells us that where two or three are gathered in God’s name, God is there in their midst. It is my prayer that worship at Trinity provides everyone with a sense of connection to the Divine.

Quote from author Glennon Doyle:

Acting perfect at church is like getting dressed up for an X-ray. Church is home. It’s where I can breathe deep and be myself for God’s sake.

I love our life at Trinity, in all of its glorious imperfection. I am grateful that we are on this journey together.

With thanks and blessings, Reverend Jen Broomhead



What We Believe at the United Church of Canada

To join the United Church of Canada, members are asked to profess their faith in the triune God – Creator, Christ, and Holy Spirit – and to commit themselves to faithful conduct in the church and in the world. Accepting the Bible as the shared standard for our faith, members are not required to adhere to any particular creed or formulation of doctrine.

The Bible is central to The United Church of Canada. As a source of wisdom, personal prayer, and devotion, we believe that reading and studying the Bible can bring us closer to God.

Jesus welcomed everyone, whether they were poor, rich, or just getting by; ill or healthy; self-made or educated; popular or a loner; secure or full of doubts.

Jesus…crossed barriers of race, class, culture, and gender. He preached and practised unconditional love…and he commanded his followers to love one another as he had loved them.
(A Song of Faith, 2006, United Church of Canada)
