Holy Trinity Tauranga

We went to church this morning; Holy Trinity, Tauranga. It’s a new modern auditorium, built when the old church burnt down and now used for multiple community activities in addition to church. I can’t help thinking that having their church burnt down must have saved them from years of church redevelopment meetings.

We sang about how ‘awesome’ our God is. The first time Val heard this familiar New Zealand expression was when she gave the correct change for some coffees. I believe, however, that the awesomeness of God belongs to a different category entirely.
