Once there was a young man who had never thought of donating blood. But then his father got very ill and was hospitalised. One day the son was sitting by his father’s bedside as he was getting a blood transfusion.   As he watched the blood flowing into his father’s veins, he suddenly realised that someone had donated the blood that was now keeping his father alive. Straightaway he made up his mind to become a donor, and he was as good as his word.
Many are willing to avail of the generosity of others, but few are willing to give something back. This is why gratitude is so important; it makes us want to give in return.

Trinity is a Community of Anglicans and has offered worship and served the local and wider community since 1856. This is a church in the Catholic tradition of the Anglican Church where the worship is offered with great care, with celebration involving ceremonial and musical traditions.  The Mass is at the heart of the Parish Community life.

The present church was constructed in 1876/77, and nearby Trinity Hall and the Rectory where the priests live replaced earlier buildings in 1891/1892. Now rather an oasis surrounded by both commercial and residential zones, Trinity maintains open grounds and a place of relative quiet. The church is open most days, all day. It is surrounded by mature trees and provides a peaceful oasis in the heart of the Valley.

We welcome many and any - Trinity is inclusive of people of differing national origins, lifestyles, the lonely and wounded as well as those who seek just and fair Christian outcomes, based on the values our Lord expounded, practised and taught.
