New Vision Statement


We are a joyful, welcoming, inclusive Christ-centered community of faith, reaching out to others, providing a safe space where we respect differences. We learn from the past and dare to change.

Sunday School

Plans are underway for the return for Sunday school in September. We will be contacting all the families with young people who may be interested. We are also looking for teachers, volunteers, and other helpers.

Thank you.

Trinity-Clifton’s Response to Covid-19

Trinity-Clifton United Church Council met early on Sunday, March 15th to discuss the guidelines outlined in the United Church of Canada’s Emergency Plan that pertained to our Community of Faith.   Most significantly, this concerned how best to continue ministering with compassion, hope and love and respond to the needs of our community in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis.

Upon the declaration by the World Health Organization of a pandemic, the UCC Emergency Plan recommends the cancellation of all Community of Faith church gatherings, which include Worship services and non-worship gatherings such as governance meetings, Christian Education activities and social gatherings.

Following these recommendations, it was decided to cancel church services indefinitely, not only to protect our congregation members, but to adhere to the guidelines of the Chief Medical Health Officer of PEI and help stop the spread of this virus. This means that the Annual General Meeting scheduled for March 29, 2020 is postponed until further notice, the UCW General Meeting for April 6, 2020 and the Tuesday Night Supper scheduled for April 7, 2020 are cancelled.

This also means that, unfortunately, we are unable to support our groups who rent space in the building for various functions. The situation will be revisited as needed, based on guidelines and direction from our provincial and federal health authorities. We look forward to the time when we can once again accommodate and support these important groups.

We are in the process of putting together a list of people who may require assistance during this difficult and isolating time.  We will be contacting these individuals to determine what their specific needs may be, and will be reaching out to our congregants to request volunteers who may able to provide comforting assistance such as picking up medications, groceries or other basic staples. We also encourage those that are able, to use the Food Bank donation boxes that are conveniently set up at the local grocery stores.

Rev. Doreen is not permitted to make pastoral visits to the hospital and nursing homes at this time, but she is pleased to continue to provide pastoral care by telephone.   She can be reached at (902) 940-1863 or by email   <>.

The Church Building is closed, however if you need to reach Trinity, feel free to contact the office by email: or Phone: (902)892-4114 and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.   Also, check our website and FaceBook (Trinity United Church) pages as we will try to keep them updated to reflect any changes.

Trinity United Church is still operating and, as such, expenses are being incurred.  There are various options available to continue contributions during this difficult time. Donations are gratefully received by cash, cheque, Visa, Mastercard and Canada Helps ( ).    If you already support by using PAR, thank you, if not please consider signing up for PAR at this time or mail your donations to the Church office (220 Richmond St. Charlottetown, PE C1A 1J5).

Please stay safe and healthy. We, as a community of faith and the general community, will get through this.  In closing, we would like to share these recent words from Dr. Richard Bott, Moderator of the United Church of Canada:

“It’s important to remember- church doesn’t close. Ever. We may need to temporarily stop our face-to-face, full-on peace passing, Communion-by-intinction and offering-of-the plates by the church. The Body of Christ is a 24/7/365 reality. It’s lived, around the world – and in our homes. it acts, when our hearts reach out; it keeps going, Wherever there is one disciple of Jesus, or two, or three – Living the Way we’ve been taught. And, with Paul, I’d like to remind you there is nothing – there is NOTHING – not a single thing – not in the sky above, or the earth below, And powers, nor principalities, not things seen, or unseen – nothing in all creation that can separate that creation from God’s love in Christ. We are the church always and all ways.”
