When & Where
We meet at 10am on Sundays, in the auditorium at McAuley Community School. Plenty of parking is available, with the best entrance via King George Avenue, although there are also car parks on Colton Avenue. Just look for the signs to point you in the right direction once you’ve parked.
If you prefer public transport we’re a short walk from Hove Station, or from stop 34 on Brighton Road.
What to expect
We’re a church that aims to make it easy for anyone to explore the Christian faith, reconnect with God, or keep on living as a follower of Jesus.
It doesn’t matter if you grew up going to church, haven’t been to a church in your life, or haven’t stepped in to a church for years—we’d love for you to come along and bring any questions you may have with you.
When you arrive at McAuley Community School, someone will welcome you and answer any logitstical questions you may have. Feel free to make yourself a drink before the service.
Take a seat when you are ready, anywhere you like. You don’t need to bring anything with you, and you can dress however you like.
Our 10am Sunday gathering is when our whole community comes together. Because Jesus is the reason for our community, our Sundays are centred around learning who he is, what he’s done, and the promises of eternal hope found in God’s word, the Bible.
And to match the person who shapes our lives and our message, you can expect a Sunday meeting that is:
- Open, warm and welcoming to everyone from any background and any walk of life. We know we’re right with God because we’re forgiven, not because we’re good—so we don’t expect anything different of anyone else.
- Thought-provoking and practical. Jesus isn’t a dead historical figure who has some wise words for life. He’s God’s risen king who is active in shaping who we are—from the big decisions of life to the day-to-day decisions we make. So when we open the Bible and hear about Jesus, we expect to be changed, because the person speaking is alive and knows us like no other.
- A celebration and thanksgiving for what God has done for us. So we’ll sing about what God has done, reminding each other of the truth, and we’ll pray to God, our Father, who longs to hear from his people.
- Family-friendly for children of all ages. You can expect to find a segment in each service where the kids will be involved. If kids are 3 or older and haven’t yet finished primary school they are alsao invited to head out for kids programs during the service. We also have an area for younger children with toys where carers can supervise but still be part of our service.
Be assured that you won’t be pressured, embarrassed into, or asked to do anything you don’t want to do. You can participate as much or as little as you like. Our one hope is that you’ll hear, see and want to investigate the person who has brought us together.
Join us for a free morning tea. Grab some food and drink and meet some people. We have a wide range of people who call Trinity Church Brighton home, and anyone is welcome.
We don’t only meet on Sunday mornings. During the week there are other opportunities to learn about Jesus and enjoy time together in community. You can find more information on our Connect page.
