Pastor’s Letter – September 3rd

Hello Church, Church is about sharing life together as family gathered around Jesus. To begin with we might not share much else in common other than our relationship with him, and that’s part of the beauty of it. God draws us together as he gathers us around his Son. So we want to reflect that in the way we share life together. One simple way we can do this is chipping in…

Pastor’s Letter – August 27th

Hello Church, This Sunday after church we have the second of our two evangelism training sessions with the team from Engage Work Faith. All the feedback I’ve had from the first session was that people found it really helpful and we’re all looking forward to Part 2. The material has been carefully prepared so that Part 2 is going to be really helpful regardless of whether…

Pastor’s Letter – August 20th

G’day Church, We had such a great time at the Engage Work Faith seminar last Sunday that I I thought it’d be good to sum up some of the most helpful moments from the seminar. At the bottom of this email are a few key diary dates coming up. The seminar got us thinking about how we grow in our ability to get to know our non-Christian friends and colleagues. I think we could…

Pastor’s Letter – August 6th

G’day Church, We’ve got a few events coming up to help us introduce people to Jesus. I thought it might be good to explain the logic of the way we’ve planned this. Sometimes we might have an opportunity for a gospel conversation come right out of the blue – like when a stranger on the plane asks about the book you’re reading and it all just cascades from there, for…

Pastor’s Letter – July 30th

G’day Church, We had some great things raised in Question Time on Sunday, but time prevented us getting to a really helpful question about the deeper, bigger-picture things our Leadership Team are currently praying for us as a church. It was a great question to come out of Psalm 90, which encourages us both as individuals and as a church family to boldly lay our…

Pastor’s Letter – July 23rd

G’day Church, A few things to flag that are coming up for us at church: – Q&A this Sunday. We want to be a church that humbly wrestles with God and his word, asking our questions and looking to him to answer them through his word. Perhaps something has come up in recent weeks that you’d like clarified, or that has prompted some wider reaching questions you…

Pastor’s Letter – July 2nd

Hello Church, Have you noticed that we’re growing? Perhaps you’ve been around for a while and you’re welcoming a lot of new faces and helping them settle in. If that’s you – thanks for offering such a warm welcome to our many newcomers! Perhaps you are one of those new faces and you’re realising that a number of people you chat to are also fairly new too. If that’s you –…

Pastor’s Letter – June 25th

Hello Church, What does it mean to belong to Trinity Church Brighton? That’s the question a whole bunch of our newest members have been thinking about over a meal this week, along with a few of our longer-term members who catered and welcomed our newcomers. We had lunch after church on Sunday attended by a little over 30, and dinner on Thursday with a few more than 20.…
