Pastor’s Letter – January 28th

G’day Church, The new year is well underway! People are returning from holidays, workplaces that slowed down or even shut down over summer are generally back up and running, a number of the kids in our church family are starting school this coming week, or making the move to high school. And as we set the rhythms and routines of a new year it’s quite intentional that we’d…

Pastor’s Letter – January 21st

Cruciform /ˈkruːsɪfɔːm/ Adjective: 1. having the shape of a cross. “a cruciform sword” Noun: 1. a thing shaped like a cross As we make our way through the second half of Mark we’re learning a lot about how the cross shapes our discipleship. We’re learning what that looks like in our attitudes and our behaviour, as individuals and as a community. It’s rich and…

Pastor’s Letter – January 14th

Hi All, I wonder if you’ve seen this year’s ‘lamb ad’ on TV this week? (For those who don’t know, Australian lamb does a TV ad each year in the leadup to Australia Day, and they’re known for the fun they poke at society and have at times been a little controversial). This year’s ad features the different generations of Australia,…

Pastor’s Letter – January 7th

Hi All Happy New Year! I hope you were able to enjoy some celebrations over the weekend and that you’re able to enjoy life at a slightly slower pace over this time where lots are on holidays and things have slowed down a bit.

Pastor’s Letter – December 10

G’day Church, First, an update for Minis families: unfortunately we’re not able to run Minis this Sunday, so please bring some activities for your Minis kids to do during church. Our team has been stretched very thin in recent months. We’ve seen an ongoing growth in the number of kids and therefore the leaders required to care for them well, and this has combined with a…

Pastor’s Letter – December 3

G’day Church, We might not think of Romans 8 as a great Christmas passage, and yet it’s all bound up in the amazing generosity of God’s gift to us in Jesus:  “There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus… what the law was powerless to do… God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering.” (Rom 8:1-2) That is Christmas!…

Pastor’s Letter – November 26

G’day Church, “Suffering now, glory later!” It sounds like a pretty tricky pitch to try and convince people of, doesn’t it. But it’s what Paul says to us in the middle of Romans chapter 8. In verse 17 we have this wonderful encouragement of mind-boggling blessing with Jesus: we are adopted into God’s family, co-heirs with Christ. When we are united with him, everything…

Pastor’s Letter – November 5

This term, as we continue to make our way through the riches of the gospel in Romans 6-8, we’re lifting our eyes to next year and thinking about our vision for church for the years to come. Over the last 12 months the Trinity Church Brighton Leadership Team have had some tremendously encouraging, thought provoking, prayer fuelled discussions of where church is at and…
