Office Administrator: Terry-Sue Coventry

Hi there my name is Terry and I am the current Office Administrator at Trinity United Church in Ingersoll Ontario. You can find me in my Office (or somewhere in the Church) Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. I started work at Trinity United in September of 2009 with the intention of working for about 5 years! 10 + years have flown by and I am still loving working for my church family. My husband Brad and myself ran his family farm in Salford for many years but with the fact that we where aging and no successor for the farm we decided to sell and move from our rural roots in 2014 and now make Ingersoll our home town. I look forward to seeing you in the office or hearing your voice on the phone or answering your emails. Here’s to a few more years anyway..

Director of Music: Susan Barta

Susan Barta has been a church musician, since she was 15 years old, as organist at Salford United Church. When Salford church closed in 2005, Susan, Brian and their children, Mitchell and Avori, joined Trinity’s congregation. Susan became our Music Director in 2007. She is also the accompanist of the Woodstock Choralaires. Susan received her Bachelor of Music and Education degrees from UWO and taught music at Hickson Central Public School for 30 years. She is retiring from teaching and is looking forward to travel, gardening, running and eating good food as well as lots of time at the piano.

Guitarist: Ken Archer

Kenny has called Ingersoll home his whole life. Sharing his musical talents and gifts throughout the world, touring with fellow musicians brings him joy. In 2016, Trinity was blessed to have Kenny add his gifts to our weekly services. His musical energy and skill compliments Susan and our choir providing uplifting musical ministry.

Children and Youth Coordinator: Chelsey Masson

Chelsey has been a part of the Trinity United Church community since 2000. Over the last twenty years, Chelsey has been actively involved in Sunday School, after-school programs, and youth group as both a participant and volunteer leader. From 2015 to 2019, Chelsey moved to the city of St. Catharines to complete her Honours Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology at Brock University. She then accepted an offer of admission to the Masters of Arts program in School and Applied Child Psychology at Western University. This schooling opportunity not only allowed Chelsey to pursue her career as a School Psychologist, but it brought her back to the Ingersoll area. Chelsey was honoured and excited to accept the position of Child and Youth Coordinator in the summer of 2019. This opportunity has allowed her to give back to her church community, stay connected with local families, and create fun, faith-based activities for children and youth at Trinity.

Drop-in Coordinator: Catherine Vancook

Catherine, her husband Dave, and 3 kids, Declan, Rowen and Lydia joined Trinity in 2009. Catherine’s experience as a mom of young children, her degree in Outdoor Education and 8 years experience in home daycare make her a great fit to lead Trinity PlayGroup. She craves community and support. Trinity has provided a place where my family can grow and connect. She loves seeing kids from across our community build skills and learn together from a young age. Watching the parents and caregivers build their own community has been, and continues to be incredibly rewarding.
