Who we are

Word on the street in Lively is that we are the community church. Trinity Lively is a good community partner who participates in many events held in the town. Our youth and their leaders help set up and take down the tents every week in the summer for the Concert series, Rock the Farm. The Spirit committee and the Mission and Outreach Service Project teams participate in the community Fall Fair. We provide space for Tai Chi classes, and for AA meetings, support the Walden Ukulele club, and also provide space for the Active Start program which is part of the Special Olympics program.

The Northern Brass and North Winds Quintet delight us with rich, high level musical performances. From annual fish fries, a soup and sandwich lunch to turkey dinners, we have a visual presence in the community.

Within the walls of Trinity United, we are family. We are multi generational and once a month have an intergenerational worship. We have a flourishing youth program with Sunday school, Junior Youth Group, Senior Youth group, and Confirmation classes. Participants move smoothly through these groups and end up in leadership roles. Programs such as Trinity Kids Camp (formerly VBS), Kids Music club, Confirmation, Movie Group, Book Studies and more encourage participation from all generations. An annual Women’s Retreat and Men’s Canoe Trip are marked excitedly on calendars. There is something for everyone!

Coffee time after church is a casual sharing time of conversation in community.

Worship is very important to the Community of Faith that is Trinity Lively. It is creative, multi media centred and encourages wide participation. We are a warm, welcoming to all, safe space to come together. We offer a weekly Thursday prayer group and a once a month Encounter Worship service during the September - June season. Healing prayers during Monthly Communion Services are celebrated at God’s Table.

Our inspiring and dynamic Ordained Minister, Rev. Kathy Dahmer brings authentic Word, bringing scripture to life. Services are keenly supported by an enthusiastic worship team.

Outside the walls of Trinity United, we reach out to our neighbours with programs that include a weekly Downtown Coffee Ministry, Out of the Cold dinners, Kid’s Music club, the Walden Ministerial group, along with services and games nights at Meadowbrook (our local seniors residence). As well, our Community of Faith holds a Birthday in the Park event every July, for the many who struggle with homelessness. This rich, collective time allows us to celebrate everyone’s birthday in the downtown of Sudbury.

History of Trinity United Church Lively ON

A brief history of Trinity- written by Julie Gagnon in the late 1990's

Prior to 1950, Lively's families attended services at Creighton Mine, or in Copper Cliff.

In early 1951, the Rev. Gordon Geiger of the Creighton Mine-Lockerby-Minnow Lake pastoral charge visited the growing community of Lively with an invitation to join in worship with members of Trinity United Church In Creighton Min.

As more homes were built in Lively, the necessity for a separate church organization in Lively was obvious. TO further that end, the first meeting of a United Church congregation in Lively was held on September 23rd, 1951 with the Rev. G. Geiger presiding. A Women's Association was formed 4 days later with Mrs. K. Pollock as President. Worship services after that date were held weekly in the homes of interested families.

In Nov. 1951, the Rev. J. A. D McKennitt, Home Missions Governor of the Sudbury Presbytery, attended a meeting to inform the congregation that a Basement church would be built in Lively under the direction of the Board of Home Missions. A committee was at once formed to secure finances and purchase furniture for the proposed Basement Church. That building is not Angel's Pizza Shop (also formerly Skippy's and McCarthur's, an apartment is now being built on that site. ed. 2019)

On March 2, 1952, Rev. Gordon Geiger conducted the first service, assisted by Re J. A O. McKennitt, and Rev. R.B. Craig, chairman of Sudbury presbytery, with Dr. J. Lyttle, superintendent of Home Missions for Ontario as guest preacher.

Church organization were soon established. A committee of Stewards was elected in March, as was the Sunday Church School. In May 1952 3 Trustees were appointed. In Oct. 1953, 4 Session members were elected, and the Choir was formed. Also the name Trinity United Church was chosen.

The Rev. Lawrence Purdy has become minister of the new Creighton-Lively Pastoral Charge.

By 1954, due to the growth of the congregation, facilities for church services and Church School classes were no longer adequate. Plans for expansion began, and in March a Wells directed canvass was conducted, with Rev. R. A. Elliot as general chairman. Mr. A L. Gagnon as vice-chairman, and Mr Charles Lively as canvass committee chairman.

The Building Fund Committee with Dr. C. R. Cupp as chairman, and a Building Committee under Dr. D. McKinty were formed.

Plans to expand the first building were decided to be impractical, as the present site was obtained, and the first building was sold to the Lutheran Church, with Trinity leasing accommodations from the new owners.

The Rev. Murray Masecar had accepted a call to the charge in July of 1954.

He conducted the sod-turning service of the new site on May 15, 1955, assisted by the Rev. N. Hillyer, and guest preacher Rev. A.T. Kennard. Mrs. C. Lyons and Mr. A.L. Gagnon turned the first sod.

The Rev. Murray Masecar again conducted the service at the dedication of the new Basement Church on Feb. 5, 1956, assisted by Rev. A. Evans and with Rev. L. Purdy as guest preacher.

The Rev. John Evans accepted a call to the charge in 1957. Under his guidance, a short term Building fund drive was undertaken in April 1958 with Mr. H. R. Butler as chairman. (to be continued)...   Edit

The power of Christian prayer Abide with us
O Holy Spirit of God, abide with us; inspire all our thoughts; pervade our imaginations; suggest all our decisions; order all our doings. Be with us in our silence and in our speech, in our haste and in our leisure, in company and in solitude, in the freshness of the morning and in the weariness of the evening; and give us grace at all times humbly to rejoice in Thy mysterious companionship.
