‘To care, share and grow in Christ as a Church family’.
As Christians we are called to be part of the body of Christ, which is a loving community. We therefore expect that the members of the body will have loving relationships; Paul in his first letter to the Corinthians says:
'Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.' (1 Corinthians 13: 4 -7)
We often need each other to help us through hurtful and stressful times. Caring, loving and helpful people make Trinity a special place to be.
