A new church plant for the southern suburbs of Adelaide. Launching in March 2019.
By God’s grace, to make and grow disciples of Jesus in a loving community.
We want everyone in the southern suburbs to know the goodness of knowing Jesus. We want to share that good news and grow together in loving community, motivated by God’s grace.
We aim to plant a church with the same DNA as our sending Trinity Network—biblically faithful, emotionally and intellectually engaging, no pretence, and genuinely welcoming. It will be home for people of all ages and all walks of life.
Remembering and celebrating God’s grace is the motivation at the heart of Trinity Church Woodcroft. Our prayerful desire is to see a movement of God transforming the hearts and minds of the people we live amongst in the southern suburbs.
What we’re about
We believe that:
- The Bible is the way you can know God and is our authority in matters of life and practice.
- Jesus brings us to God because he died in our place. Through his suffering and death on the cross, Jesus redeemed all those who trust in him from the guilt, penalty and power of sin. He was raised to life so that we can have hope even in the face of death.
- Church is a genuine family of believers who gather together in loving community to learn from the Bible, serve, pray, sing and encourage one another.
- The great news about Jesus Christ is not only for private consumption, but with respect and gentleness, is to be offered to all people.
Where we’ll meet
We are currently in negotiation with our preferred venue. We plan to be in or near the Woodcroft area.
The southern suburbs are growing. Better transport infrastructure, new housing and a growing local economy mean the population of the City of Onkaparinga is set to increase by 20,000 (11%) over the next 20 years.
Yet people living in the southern suburbs are less and less likely to be engaging with Jesus. For example, Onkaparinga is one of the most secular, least religious regions in Australia. In the 2016 census 43% stated they had ‘no religion’, compared to 30% nationally.
Reaching this area with the gospel is already an urgent task. The increasing population and stated moves away from Jesus means the need for healthy churches is even greater.
About our pastor
Colin Taylor has been married to his wife, Sharon, for 22 years and they have three children—one at university, one at high school, and one at primary school! Colin worked as a radiographer for 18 years before going into full-time ministry, and Sharon has been working as a teacher. They have loved living in Woodcroft since 2008, when they moved from their hometown of Manchester, UK. They enjoy the lifestyle and people down here—but most people are missing out on the best thing there is: the joy of knowing and loving Jesus. Colin and Sharon’s heart is for every household in the southern suburbs to be reached with the good news of Jesus.
To find out more, please email email@example.com or call Colin on 0435 130 595.
To experience what Trinity Church Woodcroft will be like, you’re most welcome to visit Colin and Sharon’s sending church, Trinity Church Brighton, which meets on Sundays at 10am at Marymount College, 8 Colton Avenue, Hove.
