Hello my singing friends!

Are you willing to carpool?
If you’re available to give a lift, some of our members would really appreciate a ride. For example, Jan Eaton lives in the East End, on Grange St right on the hill at Hardy St. She could really use a lift home after practice if you’re headed that way.

Cool Stuff on our website
To listen to the songs we’re singing this session, please go to, click on ‘For Members’ tab, then ‘Practice Tracks’ and use our super secret password: gcs.

Our friends Janna and her singing partner Reg are recording tracks so you can hear your part. You can even download it and add it to your music selection to listen to wherever you are. These practice tracks will be uploaded to the ‘Practice Tracks’ section as they come available.

Join us after Choir!
You’re all welcome to join us after choir for a cuppa tea or your bevvie of choice at the Pennywhistle. We enjoy talking about what we’re singing, and of course it’s always fun to make new friends.

Please use the Balsam Street Entrance
Trinity United is trying to manage cleaning costs. If you feel you must use the parking lot entrance, please remove your shoes at the door.
No boots in the Sanctuary!
Don’t forget to bring slippers or shoes!
Be Scent Savvy:
Some of us are very sensitive to scents. This can include hair spray, body lotion, and other scented products. Because you wear it all the time, you may not even realize that your scent is affecting others. Please give a thought to the products you wear, and please don’t wear scents to our practices. Thank you!!
