A Congregation of the Uniting Presbyterian Church in Southern Africa
Trinity is challenged to be is a congregation pointing people to God. This vision encompasses all people no matter their age or background; it encompasses all we are doing and will be doing in the future, it is on-going and will never be completed.
2 Corinthians 5:20 "We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God."
The Presbytery of Tshwane and the Pretoria Diocese of the Anglican Church undertook the establishment of Trinity as a joint development. The foundation stone was laid in 1971 and the sanctuary was completed and consecrated in 1978. The property belongs to a joint Anglican and Presbyterian Trust. Although the congregations each maintain their own identity and worship in separate worship services, they share the sanctuary and all the facilities.
In 1979 Tim Horwood was appointed at Trinity as a student for ministry, became our pastor and served God here until his retirement in March 1996. By this time Trinity had become well established in Lynnwood. In July 1996 we welcomed Robin Jacobson in our midst. He left in December 2000 when he accepted a call to Vancouver. A pastoral vacancy followed until Alan Cameron was inducted in January 2002.
Ephesians 4:16 "From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work."
