After its rectory has remained vacant for 20 months, mainly due to cyclone Seroja, the Holy Trinity Anglican Church will have a temporary ministry couple stay over four weeks to provide services to Northampton.

Geoff and Rose Brewin will stay at the newly refurbished rectory as temporary ministers, providing leadership for members of the Northampton church.

The couple’s first commitment is to host a service at St Luke’s Church in Nanson followed by a morning tea at the museum on Sunday, September 25. From then, the parish expects to conduct a service on the fourth Sunday of every month. Holy Trinity Church won’t hold a service on those days.

Last March, the church reopened with a thanksgiving service. Anglican Diocese of North West Australia The Rev. Bill Ross said St Luke’s Church had been closed for 15 months prior due to the lack of a minister and cyclone Seroja damages.

“The Northampton members will travel to Nanson to provide support for this venture to restore church services to the Chapman Valley,” he said.
