Ordination of the Rev’d Sue Barker to the Priesthood

If you would like to contribute money for a gift for Sue’s ordination, there will be a retiring collection on the next two Sundays, 27 October and 3 November.

Please sign up on the list at the rear of the church if you would like to come to a party at Trinity Hall after Rev’d Sue’s ordination.

At a ceremony on Tuesday, 29 October, the Holy Trinity Landscape Revitalisation was awarded a High Commendation in the National Trust’s 2019 Queensland Heritage Awards. The certificate is on display at the rear of the church.

Advent/Epiphany Study Groups 

Thursdays in December and January

The Anglican Board of Mission has published a collection of daily Bible readings and reflections for Advent and Epiphany, entitled Songs from a Strange Land. Weekly study groups will be offered based on this text. The text costs $13 (including shipping). Study groups will run on Thursdays 11 am-12 pm, and repeated 6:30 pm-7:30 pm, on 5, 12, 19 December, and possibly a further day or two in January, as agreed within groups. You are welcome to come on some or all dates. Groups may be cancelled if there are insufficient numbers. Please sign up on the list at the rear of the church so that we can order books promptly. Please see Fr Rodney if it would help your participation for your book purchase to be subsidised.

Rev’d Sue will lead a Quiet Morning at the parish as a time of preparation for Advent. Morning Prayer will be said at 9:30 am, followed by three short addresses, with a time for quiet reflection/reading in between the addresses, and a break for morning tea (provided). Please bring a Bible and, if desired, a pen and paper to jot down your private reflections. Please sign up on the list at the rear of the church. No cost.
