  • Trinity’s Christmas Eve Service promises to be a wonderful one, as it always is. Please tell us how we can make sure you get to see the Trinity Christmas Eve Worship. We do not want anyone to miss it. How can we make sure that happens? We need your help in letting us know what you need.

    Currently we may access our recorded services on Facebook, our website and on You Tube at ‘Trinity Parkland’. We also produce a handful of DVDs each week which are delivered to a few people in assisted living where there is a DVD player available. And finally, we offer an in-person screening of the service each Sunday morning in the sanctuary.

    Are you somebody who would enjoy having a DVD who currently does not get one? If so, please let us know. Call us at the office. Would you be able to attend an in-person screening? What time would work for you? Call us at the office. We could arrange a private viewing of a DVD at Trinity anytime during the week, just for you. Let us know. Call us at the office! We don’t want anyone to miss Christmas Eve at Trinity.
