If you've wanted to remind someone of what's important, one last time ...2 Peter
Or if you've wondered what's true and what's not when it comes to Jesus ...
Or maybe it feels like it's taking a long time for Jesus to return ...

Then 2 Peter is for you!

Our new teaching series, "A Certain Faith" taking in the second letter written by the Apostle Peter will begin on Sunday 30 September.  Bible Study Groups will begin in 2 Peter during the week prior.  

 

2 Peter is a letter in which the Apostle gives a final reminder to his readers of the faith that has been passed down to them. He is conscious that his own life is drawing to an end and he wants his friends to continue to grow in faith and maturity after he has left them. Peter knows that they will be living out their faith in an environment in which false messages about Jesus will spring up, and he is eager for them to be able discern the truth from error, and cling to what is true. And Peter knows that even though believers are still waiting for Jesus' return, it is sure and guaranteed, and those who belong to Jesus must be ready and about their master's work.

So it's easy to see what application 2 Peter might have for us!

 

You can download the study guide for 2 Peter here, and please join us on Sundays at 10 AM, from 30 September.

 

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen. 
2 Peter 3:18

Kids Church: Three parables

 
We’d love for you to join us in Kids Church this Sunday as we hear more of Jesus’ parables!
 
The religious leaders complained that Jesus welcomed sinners. Jesus told these parables to teach about God’s forgiveness. God sent Jesus so sinners can be forgiven. As Savior, Jesus seeks sinners. He paid the ultimate price—His own life—to save people from sin.

Kids Church: The unmerciful servant

 
Come along to Kids Church this Sunday to learn more of Jesus’ parables – this week ‘The Unmerciful Servant’.
 
Nothing we do is enough to pay the debt we owe God and take away God’s punishment for our sin. Jesus came and died on the cross to pay for our sin and take the punishment we deserve. When we trust in Jesus, God forgives our sin completely. We can forgive others because God has greatly forgiven us.

Can you be both alive and dead at the same time?

Dead and Alive?

This Sunday, 2 September, we're continuing our journey through the Apostle Paul's letter to the Romans.  We're in chapter 6 this week.  You might like to read ahead to get the most out of Sunday.

And as it's Father's Day, we'll have a special small gift for all the men in our church family!

 

Romans 6:1-14 New International Version (NIV)

 
What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
 
5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,[a] that we should no longer be slaves to sin— 7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.
 
8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
 
11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. 14 For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.

Jesus’ story about the good Samaritan surprised the people who heard it. Like the good Samaritan, God saw that we needed to be rescued. He sent His Son to save us from sin. Jesus died on the cross for our sin and rose again so we can have eternal life. God calls us to show His love for the world by helping people in need. We hope you can join us in Kids Church on Sunday to find out more!

Joining a church can sometimes feel a little like suddenly becoming part of a very large family! Welcome Lunch

We love having new people join our church family, and if you're new at Trinity we're eager to make the transition as easy as possible for you!  

A Welcome Lunch is your chance to meet some other people who are new-ish, a few people who have been around a bit longer, and to enjoy a meal together. There's an opportunity for you to ask any questions that you might have about our church, who's who, and how things work at Trinity.

Our next Welcome Lunch is Sunday, 9 September, 1 PM at Clayton & Kathy Fopp's  home in Littlehampton.  If you've been around for a few weeks or months, and would like to get to know your new Trinity family a little better, please join us!

You can let us know you're coming and advise us of any dietary requirements by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by using the Response Slip on Sundays.

We're gathering to pray on Wednesday September 12, 8 - 9:15 PM at Cornerstone College

Prayer Gathering

While we pray in all sorts of ways and on all manner of occasions, it is especially good to join together in prayer.  Gathering as a church to pray gives us an opportunity as a family to bring our concerns to God, and to join with each other in thanking God for his goodness to us!  Of course, lots of Christians also find it really encouraging to listen to others pray, and to learn from the prayers of other believers.

This Prayer Gathering will be hosted and led by our Wednesday Evening Expats Bible Study Group.

And you can be part of it!

Please join us Wednesday September 12, at 8 PM, in Paideia at Cornerstone College, where we meet on Sundays. There will be no evening TMB Bible Studies this week.  All groups will be joining in the Prayer Gathering.You'll be able to pray for a range of areas in our church life and beyond, sing some songs, enjoy quietness for reflection and prayer, and be encouraged through the prayers of others.  You can pray out loud, or not.  And if you come 15 minutes early, at 7:45, coffee will be served! 

 

 

Kids Church: parables

 
Come along to Kids Church this Sunday and find out what we can learn from parables.
 
Jesus told a story about seed that fell on different kinds of soil to illustrate how people respond to the gospel. Jesus is the Sower who shared the truth about God’s kingdom. His followers continue to share the truth today, and those who understand and accept the gospel become more like Jesus.
 
We hope you can join us!
