Music at Trinity

Music at Trinity United Church

Music at Trinity is an integral part of our worship and is led by our Music Director, Mr. Michael Morgan, along with the wonderful singing of our Senior Choir.



Trinity Choir…and more.

Please consider how you might support Trinity’s worship services musically; the Choir always welcomes new or returning voices – especially those of the tenor or bass persuasion.

If you feel a weekly commitment is a challenge, consider joining us for shorter term projects, like the November 24th Cantata choral service, Christmas, Easter or other to be announced projects.

But wait – there’s more! Starting in September 2019, Trinity Director of Music Michael Morgan hopes to start a Choir for Young People – some have voiced interest already, but perhaps there are more would be singers out there! Please email Michael at music.speaking@gmail.com to discuss your interest and help settle on a suitable rehearsal time!

Young People’s Musical Theatre

Michael Morgan is hoping to start a musical theatre troupe for young people. While this Troupe will hopefully build on a core group from both Trinity and St. Paul’s United Church (Bowmanville), the invitation to join is also there for the wider community. There are some excellent musicals out there based upon church school curriculum enlivened by contemporary storytelling and music – and what a great way to invite young people into the Trinity United Church community!

Music @ Trinity

Trinity will be hosting various musical concerts throughout the year as a means of fundraising. This might mean a concert by our choir and in-house musicians or guests from around the community. Be sure to look for these advertisements starting in September – if you know of any resident performers, please help Michael connect!

For any of the above-mentioned projects, please contact Michael at music.speaking@gmail.com or contact him following a worship service from September 2019.

Senior Choir

The senior choir has a rich history of providing music as a ministry at Trinity United Church as long as the church has been in existence. They are a very talented, hard working group of individuals that pride themselves on producing music of a fine quality. This 25 member group leads weekly services in hymnody, as well as performing anthems of a variety of styles. The senior choir also performs in concerts and other music services throughout the church year.

Trinity United Church Organ

Trinity is host to a very fine pipe organ. This current organ was made by Casavant Freres company, in 1957, replacing the Franklin Legge organ which was installed 30 years prior.  This Casavant is a three manual, electro-pneumatic console, with nearly 2000 pipes.

We are extremely lucky to have an instrument of this size and quality, which inspires us every Sunday morning to lift our voices in hymnody. Moreover, the organ is used to accompany the choir while singing anthems, as well as providing music before and after each service.
