Acts 2:47, “And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved”, is our testimony at the Holy Trinity, Coburg. We see God is working daily to save and lead people to our church.
Last December we were blessed with the confirmation of 40 people who joined us early in 2022. The service was led by the Archbishop Philip Freier.
Some of our members shared with us their feelings during the service. Mr. Fouad said that he had looked for a suitable church for 20 years, and once he found the Holy Trinity, he and his family were so happy.
Another lady said that her husband had never been with her in a church except the Holy Trinity, and that she was so thankful.
One young person said she felt that she had finally found a wonderful family.
Thanks be to God that the church is spiritually building the Arabic community who come from seven different nationalities in the Middle East.
We also are so blessed to build new relationships with supporters from other churches and community.
We have faith that our church is a “purpose driven church”. We establish our faith on biblical doctrine, so the purpose of the church is to be God’s hands, mouth, and feet in this world—the body of Christ. We see this reflected in 1 Corinthians 12:12, “For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.”
We are here to do the things that Jesus Christ would do if He were here physically on the earth.
The Reverend Canon Farag Hanna is the vicar of the Arabic and English-speaking Holy Trinity Anglican Parish, Coburg.
