HOLY TRINITY CHURCH, SURREY HILLS

Holy Trinity Surrey Hills & Mont Albert, in the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne, is a faith community in the liberal Anglo-Catholic tradition. The parish began Surrey Hills in 1885 and has occupied the current site for over 100 years. It was a two-church parish until the closure of the original church building, St George's Mont Albert, in 1998.

The church community is warm and caring and the parish is a place to meet neighbours and to explore the Christian faith together in a rational and open-minded fashion, and with a sence of enjoyment as worship is as much about laughter, as it is about solemnity. There is a strong sense of community in the parish and there are many opportunities to be involved with each other through parish activities.

Holy Trinity is a place where God is encountered in ‘the beauty of holiness’, in the honesty of preaching and discussion, and in the lives of those trying to respond to God’s call. All who enter God's dwelling place are home to a varied and friendly community that includes, in its own way, the diversity of the greater community.

Psalm 76 begins:
1 In Judah is God known:
        
his name is great in Israel.
2 In Salem also is his tabernacle,
        
and his dwelling place in Zion.
