Altar guild

The Altar Guild members care for the arrangement, set-up, care and cleaning of the things connected with the altar – the chalices and plate, the linens and vestments, as well as looking after the flowers and decorating the church for festivals.

2018 ALTAR GUILD REPORT

The Altar Guild prepares the vessels, linens and flower decorations for all regular services. There is a roster, and teams of volunteers take responsibility on a rotational basis. They also supervise decoration of the church for Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving. This is an important and quiet “behind the scenes” ministry that helps to enhance the worship experience at Holy Trinity. Being part of the Altar Guild is also a unique opportunity for fellowship and a way to learn the traditions associated with preparing the church for each service. We are always actively seeking new members, especially a coordinator for 2019/2020, as well as someone to oversee the ordering of the weekly altar flowers. No prior experience is required, and all training is provided. If you are interested in joining our friendly and welcoming team, please contact the church office.
