Members of Holy Trinity Anglican are invited to serve on the Altar Guild to help set up the sanctuary and prepare our worship space on Sunday mornings. You’ll be trained on the proper manner and procedure in handling the vessels and materials used in each service and in altar preparation. The guild exists to assist the clergy and is headed by the Rector.
Altar Guild members are divided into four teams with one team responsible for worship service preparation each week. Members serve approximately once a month and choose to serve either the first or the second service.
Altar Guild members prepare the chancel before each service. They also prepare for the essential rite of Holy Baptism.
Those serving for the first service arrive around 8:35am to prepare for the 9am service. Following the first service, the altar is reset for the second service.
Those serving the 11am service arrive around 10:10 am, prepare for the service and stay afterwards to clean up. In addition, when Communion is scheduled, available members for that week are invited to come in Saturday at 10:30am for preliminary setup in the sacristy, which makes the Sunday morning setup go smoothly.
Teams may be asked to contribute as needed between services. Our goal is to have enough members so that we can be flexible with individual schedules.
