She took over as director from Mary Ridgley in 2010. Since taking on this role, Kim has attended numerous provincial and international handbell festivals as a member of the Ontario Guild of English Handbell Ringers (OGEHR) and now serves as Communications Director and Webmaster on their board of directors.
Kim attributes her directing skills to the numerous workshops she has both taken and led for OGEHR, the on-the-job directing of the eleven-member handbell choir, and the patience and guidance of Mary Ridgley, Trinity’s youth, orchestra, and former handbell director.

Our adult choir provides musical leadership most Sundays at our 9:15am service. A mixed-voice choir, featuring an extensive repertoire of anthems and motets appropriate for the various seasons of the year. Drawing from a broad selection of music, we showcase the diversity of the Anglican musical tradition.
The Youth Choir provides a creative opportunity for the young people of Trinity to offer their love of music and joyful voices to the glory of God. Through regular participation in Sunday worship and special events, the Youth Choir promotes Christian fellowship and provides musical training for young singers.
Trinity Unplugged provides contemporary folk inspired music for services at Trinity once a month, and is also actively involved at other events within the local community and diocese. A choir of voices, guitars, stringed instruments, and percussion combine to create a fun and modern expression of Anglican worship.
We are blessed to have the beautiful textures of strings, horns, woodwinds, and percussion accompany our 9:15 worship service, regularly. If you play an instrument and are looking for an opportunity to make music, you should considering auditioning for our orchestra!
