Annual Berea Mission

In Week 5 the annual Berea Mission took place. Berea is a co-curricular group that aims to train and equip young men for Christian ministry at Trinity and beyond. Thirty-six Bereans from the Senior School were divided into four teams to teach the Bible and share the gospel of Jesus at various schools and churches in Greater Sydney. Each team visited a school for three days, either at Trinity Preparatory School, Georges River Grammar School, William Carey Christian School or Penrith Anglican College, where they taught Christian Studies, led the voluntary lunchtime groups, and gave Bible talks at Chapel services. 

On the Friday evening, the four teams visited four churches. At Ingleburn Anglican and Harrington Park Anglican the teams led the Kids’ Clubs and Youth Groups, while at Minto Anglican and Berala Anglican, the teams led the Youth Groups. The Trinity students conducted the usual activities that one might expect: sharing their testimony, running games, leading the meeting, leading in prayer, giving a Bible talk and leading discussions on Bible passages and themes from the talk. On the Sunday morning the teams led the Kids’ Churches or Sunday Schools of the same partner churches. 

On two evenings and on Saturday, the group benefited from four talks on discipleship by Ben Pakula, the assistant minister and youth leader at Harrington Park Anglican, one of our partner churches. 

Berea Mission has continued to be a highlight of the School year for the students and teachers who participate. The Trinity students are a source of great encouragement and enthusiasm and are warmly received at each of the schools and churches.
