- Receiving offertory gifts
- Serving at the altar during Eucharist

Training is scheduled as needed, For information, contact Head of Ushers Joe Dzeda.
The altar is the heart of Trinity’s worship. The Altar Guild—a joyous and devoted team—cares for the altar and liturgical accoutrements, prepares the sanctuary for worship and arranges flowers for display on altars. Each month through the year, a different team works on Saturday mornings to prepare for Sunday workship. Team members split duties to cover different services on Sundays. Contact Jan Tredwell.
