Trillium is blessed to have knitters and quilters sharing their wonderful gifts with Trillium ministries. We thank God for all the gifted knitters and quilters amongst us and we ask God to protect and guide the recipients of these knitted items and quilts.
Taizé worship comes to Trillium on Wednesdays at 7 pm. While the weather is warm, we’ll gather outside but when the temperature drops we’ll move into the chapel. This meditative worship service offers a chance for reflection and contemplation for all ages. Contact the church office for more information.
We give thanks for being able to worship together in-person and online via the church’s YouTube channel. For more information on how to join us, contact the church office Monday to Friday.
Interested in learning more about community gardens and the history of the Good Earth Garden? Join the Adult Education Forum Zoom presentation on Wednesday, Sept. 29 at 7 pm. Heather Kelly will explore the benefits of gardening and so much more. Contact the church office for Zoom information.
This Sunday will be Trillium’s second “unlearn Sunday”. Join us Sunday, Sept. 19 at 10:30am for an abbreviated worship after which guest facilitators from unlearn, a local design-focused equity education organization, will lead us in conversations around diversity, equity, and positive change. Unlearn’s aim is to challenge us to think about our unconscious biases that keep us from being as welcoming as we can be. We believe that God’s plan – in creation and now – is that there is only one family. What we unlearn is the perceived or felt necessity of division. Please join us as we learn, grow, and explore together. Zoom information available weekdays from the church office.
Join virtual Kids’ Church on Sept. 12 at 9:30 am and bring your backpacks to the Zoom screen for a backpack blessing. Feel free to join the worship service at 10:30 am as well. Zoom information is available from the church office during the week.
On August 15, Trillium Lutheran Church hosted KW Ecumenical Services with Taizé Songs (KWESTS) for an outdoor service near the community garden. Families gathered on the lawn while physically distanced to enjoy a beautiful evening and worship together safely. Before COVID these contemplative worship services were hosted by different churches, but happen now via Facebook Live. This was a rare opportunity since COVID to safely be together in person. KWESTS plans to resume meeting in person in September at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Kitchener.
Trillium has a new Zoom address for Sunday 10 AM worship. Call the church office during the week for details.

In April Trillium’s church bells resumed ringing to show support for front-line workers. The bells had previously been rung in the spring and summer of 2020. On July 16 Ontario entered Step 3 of the re-opening plan. As we are now in the third week of Step 3, it was felt this would be an appropriate time to stop ringing the bells. Therefore, Friday, August 6 will be the last time the bells are rung at Trillium for this purpose.
We would like to thank the front-line workers, our bell ringers, and any neighbours who joined us in showing support for the workers.
