Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Woolloongabba

A parish family seeking to bring the best of Anglican tradition into dialogue with the needs of today's community.

We worship at a traditional sung Eucharist each Sunday morning at 9 am. Sunday School occurs at the same time during school terms. Our church on the hill has been a beacon for Christ since 1870 and the current beautiful building a Woolloongabba landmark since 1930. We welcome people of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life to join us in worshipping God, celebrating our faith and seeking to understand the will of Christ and to do his work in the world.

Mission: To know and proclaim the Grace of God through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, in loving service.

A Good Friday Message from Bishop Doug

"Do not be Afraid"

Jeremy Greaves

To reflect upon...

We’re never going to call this imposed-ultra-Lent a good thing, but together we can make it a time of discovery, insight and imagination. We can learn new things about technology and one another, and we can open new doors to the activity of the Spirit. I hope we look back and say, I would never want to go through that again, but it deepened our community and it taught me a lot about myself and about God. We are made who we are by God and one another: let’s use this time to be creative in how we connect with both. And remember it was in the wilderness that Israel found out who they were and who God was. [Revd Sam Wells, St Martins in the Fields]

We may not be able to gather for study, prayer or worship as is customary in this important week in our Church calendar, but we can read and pray in our own homes, knowing that we are together in the Spirit that nurtures us and unites us.

[03/22/20]   Due to the disruption and danger caused by the Covid19 virus, our Archbishop has directed that all public gathering for worship is suspended until further notice.This means that there will be no Sunday services until the Archbishop decides otherwise. The Church will be open at certain times for people to visit for private prayer and these times will be notified shortly. Keep safe and be well.

Wise words, important reminder.

Food for thought.

What do you see?

In response to comments from Sydney

What a different Anglican spirit we have in southern Queensland to Sydney! :-) Here is an official Anglican restatement of commitment to all:
affirming the much expressed regional Anglican 'desire to be a welcoming and safe church for all and together to work through admittedly complex issues on which people hold diverse views'
'We treasure the unity of the church and the reconciliation of all people and the whole creation wrought by the life, death and resurrection of Christ. Asking people to leave undermines this fundamental truth.' #notleaving #SydneyAnglicanisnotAustralia

Read all the way through - this is what freedom looks like with faith


St John's Cathedral, Brisbane

In early June, while taking some annual leave, I spent some time in Canada. While there, I was struck by the number of sites at which massacres and other acts of dispossession of the indigenous people that have been officially recognised by the placing of memorials. My son, who lives in Canada, said that he is constantly impressed by the determination of the Canadian people to come to terms with their history.

My sense is that there is an increasing awareness in Australia of the need to do the same. The theme for NAIDOC Week this year Voice, Treaty, Truth, echoes this need.

It is said that histories are written by the victors. This has certainly been the case in Australia. We are, however, beginning to recognise the need to listen to the voice of those who have been dispossessed.

The call for Treaty reminds us that there is unfinished business leftover from the time of dispossession. The nations of this great southland have never been ceded. Finding a way forward will be difficult but essential for the healing of our national psyche.

Honouring the call for truth will be both painful and challenging. There are parts of our national story that will be a source of deep shame for those of us who live on the benefits of dispossession. Much of what we enjoy was built at the expense of the traditional custodians. The work that is currently going on to map the massacre sites and to record the stories associated with them is an important part of this process.

The church has a vital role to play in the processes that will lead this nation forward given that our mandate is to work for human flourishing and for the liberation of those who are oppressed.

Thanks to Bishop Jeremy for two of the pictures that appear in this reflection.
