The deconsecration service for Trinity Church in Springfield was held yesterday June 28, 2020. It was a breezy, sunny day and Bishop David Edwards gave a lovely service to the 50 people in attendance. Trinity was consecrated in 1826 by Bishop of Nova Scotia, John Ingliss. It predates the Diocese of Fredericton. Over the last 194 years many families have made memories in this church and it is a very special building to these families and the community. We had a handful of speakers yesterday who provided their personal memories of the church or memories from their families which included Sunday school, Christmas services, weddings, baptisms, and funerals. There were multiple mentions of the flies and the beautiful view of the church as you drive towards it down the hill on Route 124.
Even without having grown up in this church I have special memories of many events from our family over the past 17 years, even after it was deemed a Chapel of Ease. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law were married in 2006, my mother-in-laws funeral service in 2007, my sister-in-law was baptized in 2008, my oldest nephew was baptized in 2011, my niece and oldest son were baptized in 2014 and my other nephew was baptized in 2015. My husband and his family could add so many more before my time and hearing their stories I am glad I can picture where these events for them happened.
Please feel free to add your own memories in the comments. Thank you for the memories Trinity!
