Holy Trinity, Thornhill, offers a number of opportunities for fellowship and social interaction. In addition to the coffee hour after the 10:00 a.m. Sunday service, except during the summer months, other opportunities include the following.
The Footlights Club
The Footlights club was started at Holy Trinity Church in 1953 by the Priestman family. Since that time it has presented skits and plays every year except for the period 1973-1983. By 2013, 88 productions had been staged.
The Club has an executive of four, and a very loose, informal membership of about 20 people, most of whom are parishioners. Some of these perform as actors, others help by building or decorating sets, selling tickets, doing publicity or working backstage. Malcolm Shiner has been the director since 2000.
Usually the Club makes one presentation every March or April. Rehearsals begin in January or February and are held Sunday afternoons and Tuesday evenings. The money raised through ticket sales goes to the church.
If you have an interest in amateur theatre and would like information as to how you might be involved in some aspect of the Footlights Club call Malcolm at 905 889 4407.
The Quilters are a group currently of 6 to 7 ladies who meet every Thursday 10 to 2 p.m. to quilt. They either do quilts for others or to sell too support our church’s ministry. We do not meet during the summer months.
The Men’s Breakfast
The Men’s Breakfast is held two to three times held twice a year with a guest speaker. Opportunities are also available to explore faith experiences.
Seniors’ Luncheons are held quarterly (including Thanksgiving and Christmasd) after a Wednesday Eucharist service.
