Pastor’s Letter – April 16

Hi All, I hope your week this week has gone well, and you were able to enjoy some rest on the public holiday on Monday? What a great Easter we had at church this year – thanks to all who served us in so many ways. This coming weekend is an exciting one for our church too – particularly for our youth who are going away on Summit Camp. Summit Camp is put on by…

Pastor’s Letter – April 9

Hi All, At times the hustle and bustle of life feels like a constant effort to “make like a duck” (keep a steady appearance above the water while frantically paddling underneath). I reckon that’s why Aussie’s love Easter – because it’s a precious four day weekend! But Easter is really a wonderful time of pausing and resting in who Jesus is and how…

Pastor’s Letter – April 2

Hi All, It always feels like a bit of an accomplishment when we get to the end of a sermon series at church. I think it’s something worth celebrating and giving thanks for – and so, on that note, what a great time we’ve spent going through the first half of the book of Mark this term! I don’t know about you but I’ve seen plenty of things…

Pastor’s Letter – March 26

G’day church, I wonder, what has struck you most from our time in Mark’s gospel? Matt and I were reading from it together yesterday and reflecting on just how compelling Jesus is. Bold and blunt to the extent that sometimes people took offense. Caring and compassionate, even when he was physically exhausted and looking for some rest. Insightful and wise such that he was…

Pastor’s Letter – March 19

G’day church, Last Sunday we reflected on what it means to share Jesus’ compassion for the crowds. Well, this week I’ve got three invitations for you to pass on to people in your life: 1: Do you know anyone who lives in the western suburbs who you would like to connect with a fantastic local church in their area? Trinity Church Lockleys launches this Sunday at…

Pastor’s Letter – March 12

G’day Church, Here at Trinity Church Brighton it’s pretty common for us talk about gospel partnership. A couple of weeks ago I highlighted the joy of partnering together financially and the privilege that God gives us of contributing our money to the cause of the gospel in our local church. Read more here if you’re keen to get on board with that. But partnership is a much…

Pastor’s Letter – March 5

Hello Church, Last Sunday we heard about the upcoming church AGM for Sunday March 26 after church. There is a rare breed of people who hear ‘AGM’ and think, “Great, I’ve so been looking forward to this!” If that’s you, I praise God for the diverse gifts he gives to his church! For most of us though, we’re more likely to hear ‘AGM’ and think “Could there be anything more…

Pastor’s Letter – February 19th

Hi Everyone, I want to let you know a two updates about our family. The first update is some big news for the Marshman family. Seven months ago, a member of our broader extended family gave birth to a little boy, but is unable to care for him. After lots of careful consideration and a fairly complex process, this week this little boy has joined our family, under our…
