The Church of the Holy Trinity is a community of people who express Christian faith through lives of integrity, justice and compassion. We foster lay leadership, include the doubter and marginalized, and challenge oppression wherever it may be found.Holy Trinity Mission statement, 2010
Towards the Future
We are looking to the future with the intention to be a life-giving and creative Christian presence in downtown Toronto, celebrating our history and also ready to let go of what will keep us from becoming the vibrant spiritual community we are called to be.
An ever-growing number of people describe feelings of isolation. We believe that churches have something to offer in this space. At the same time we recognize that churches have done and still do much to exclude. With our diverse theological background, we believe that we can offer something that many churches cannot. We wish to be a community with spirituality at its heart, and unconditionally welcoming and open to everyone where they are, of whatever faith or of none, and to foster many conversations and experiences of life and spirituality.
In 2019, Holy Trinity hired a Community Director to support the work of the congregation and staff in accomplishing the goals of a community-held visioning process. This role is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Parish and currently reports directly to the Vestry Executive Committee. We are in the process of seeking Diocesan approval of this governing structure. Our ambition in hiring a Community Director is to become a more outgoing and public-facing Parish in order to both help our own community grow and respond more effectively to the needs of the downtown community.
In seeking a Priest to join our team, we are looking for a partner with a fire in their belly, energy for liturgical renewal, pastoral experience, and a collegial mindset. As a community, we are exploring how to further open our doors, energizing and supporting the broader community and each other.
A Community Conversation about the future
We have been engaged in an ongoing process of reflection and refining our vision of ourselves, the community and the future. These are not questions with simple answers, but conversations around which we can shape our future.
