How We Worship
As you enter our Sanctuary from our Church Street entrances (we also have accessible entrances and an elevator), you will be warmly welcomed by one of our greeters and offered a bulletin with a description of the day’s service.
Each service begins with words of welcome by the Minister or worship leader, weekly announcements about church life, activities, celebrations and concerns are followed by the call to worship.
Worship consists of hymns, prayers, children’s stories, choral anthems, scripture readings, sermons, offertory and prayers of the people.
At various times throughout the year, communion and baptisms are also celebrated, though not every week.
We often have fellowship activities taking place after worship where we connect with each other and welcome visitors and newcomers to our community.
Reverend Jennifer Broomhead joined Trinity United Church as Ordained Minister in October 2013. Following the completion of her Master of Divinity degree at Queen’s Theological College in Kingston, Jennifer was ordained by the United Church of Canada’s Manitou Conference in North Bay in June 2009.
Jennifer was settled to two separate charges near Belleville (Melrose and Front Road-Point Anne), before accepting a call to Trinity United Church. Jennifer lives in Bowmanville with her husband Gordon and their daughter Amelia.
Born and raised in Chapleau, Ontario, Jennifer travelled far from her Northern Ontario roots to work in various locations across Ontario and in China, before she finally heeded the persistent call to ministry.
Ministers are called to travel with others on their respective faith journeys. Some may be far from the familiar, facing language barriers, and unclear signposts. Others find the path to be comfortable. For most, the journey of faith takes us on paths from the comfortable to the unfamiliar and back again. Jennifer believes that she is called as a minister to travel with others, with self, and with God.
