Welcome to Trinity!
Join us for worship
Pentecost May 19: Celebrate with us the arrival of the Holy Spirit and the “birthday of the church”. 9:30am in German and 11am in English.
Trinity Sunday May 26: Both “Trinity Churches” are getting together on this day! The German service begins at 9:30am as usual, but will be slightly shorter. The English service begins at 10:30am already in our church, and finishes at Holy Trinity Anglican Church. Following the service, Holy Trinity is inviting us to their BBQ and beer garden on occasion of their 100th anniversary.
Radical Welcome…an invitation to discuss (and a challenge to read)
At the annual general meeting in March, Trinity decided “to become a radically welcoming community”. But what does this mean? We want to “welcome” everybody to a discussion around this question.
Church Council has begun to study the book Radical Welcome by Stephanie Spellers. It provides a scriptural foundation, as well as examples from a number of churches who are working on being radically welcoming communities. We invite (and challenge) you all to read this book in parallel with Church Council, and to think about it prayerfully. We will dedicate our blog to responses to the book – check it often and post your comments, too!
First challenge: Read and reflect on pages 1–60 until May 28, 2013, the day when Council will talk about these pages. As you read and reflect, join our discussion on the blog.
[The book is available at local and online booksellers (Amazon price: $13.49).]
