Since 1824, when the first Methodist church was built on this site, music has played a large role in the life of this congregation.
Under the direction of our Minister of Music, Debbie Fingas, the Chancel Choir has grown to over 30 skilled singers. Included within the choir are soprano, tenor and bass soloists as well as our Women's Trio. On occasion, the congregation also enjoys guest musicians including pianists, violinists, flautists, and soloists from our wider community.
Similarly, the youth music program has long played an integral role in the worship life of the congregation. Also led by Debbie Fingas, the program features the 'High Spirits' junior choir (Grade 3 and up) and the 'Joyful Noise' junior choir (JK - Grade 2). The junior choirs make frequent use of our collection of Orff instruments including timpani, glockenspiels, metallophones and xylophones.
Since 2010 Trinity has acquired four octaves of Schulmerich handbells and three octaves of Malmark handchimes. The Jubilate handbell choir, conducted by Debbie Fingas, has 11 members and rings both during worship services and out in the community. Our newest musical ensemble, Jubilate Junior (Grades 7 - 12), currently rings two octaves of bells and is conducted by Cheryl McFarlane.
The organ is a three manual Artisan Classic digital with 71 stops and also features a "floating fourth" manual and MIDI. The piano is a 7'6" Knabe grand purchased in 2012.
Trinity United Church also plays a large role in the musical life of the community as a whole by providing a home to both the La Jeunesse Choirs, the Northumberland Orchestra and Choir and Shout Sister Choir . All of these groups use the facilities of Trinity United Church for rehearsal and presentation of concerts.
