Trinity

In 325, the Council of Nicaea adopted the Nicene Creed which described Christ as "God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father". The creed used the term homoousios (of one substance) to define the relationship between the Father and the Son. After more than fifty years of debate, homoousios was recognised as the hallmark of orthodoxy, and was further developed into the formula of "three persons, one being".
It can be argued that the early (primitive) Church Fathers were seeking to dovetail into one, the Old Testament God, Jesus and the literal ‘appearance’ of the Holy Spirit; in so doing they unknowingly created an abstract, an icon, that reveals more than they ever imagined.

The trinity is the largest embrace in the universe…. All of us live within the circle of the Trinity. No one or no thing can fall out of this circle. In God there is no outside.

Sentence:

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth

Do you know we use our Community Hall, kitchen and other facilities for our celebrations and weekly and monthlyactivities, and that many other groups in our community use it as well?

Our commitment to community is given a ‘real’ expression in practical terms through continuing to maintain a precinct that welcomes all, especially those service groups that could not otherwise operate.

Divine embrace and Dance of Love
Our Life is revealed in the light of your Love;
Holy Trinity, your voice calls us to Birth, to death,
and to fullness of Life
In Christ, the unseen is made seen
In the Spirit, the fullness of life is given to all
and together we embrace the universe as we give and receive
in your Divine presence.
Amen

Why come to church?

There are many and varied reasons that bring us here Sunday by Sunday: our personal journey and our innate desire for ‘community’ being just two.
We also enter into a ‘conversation’ that takes us beyond the everyday, a dialogue with and between ourselves and our calling into full humanity. And we come to encounter the Divine as we consume the sacraments, a process that mirrors our desire to be consumed by love’s Divine fire.
