On the 2nd of September in 1859, the Rev’d John Sheepshanks sounded a gong and called the people of New Westminster to prayer.  Eight men showed up and the ministry of Holy Trinity began.

This year we celebrate the 160th anniversary of that first service with a dinner on Saturday, 7 September 2019, with a silent auction and entertainment. Tickets are $75 with a portion eligible for a tax receipt.

Sunday we will celebrate the eucharist at 8am using the Book of Common Prayer 1662 to remember our past and a contemporary eucharist at 10am to celebrate our present and to look forward to our future.

Join us.  Contact the Ven. Richard Geoffrey Leggett for more information.
