聖公會聖三一堂 Trinity Church, Keelung: What a Transformation!

Yesterday with Bishop Lai, his wife Lily and diocesan treasurer John to see our newly transformed Trinity Church in Keelung, AMAZING!  Definitely an ‘AH’ moment to walk in and see how big it has suddenly become, and how light and beautiful.  The original space is still the same size, just looks much bigger.  All because they need more space for the increasing numbers of people coming to church ~ the original design seated 60 people, now remodelled to fit in 80 people.

Just in case you’re wondering what it used to look like before all this transformation, this is a photo of my last visit in the summer when we took the Vancouver Youth Team to visit…. what a huge transformation eh?!

The church is actually on the second floor (American numbering) so the big hole in the floor next to the church space looks down on the old kitchen on the first floor…… Trinity’s version of the story in Mark 2, when the 4 friends carry their paralysed friend up to the roof and make a hole to let him down, in order to see Jesus…. It is going to become another room for the congregation, especially a place for children to stay during the services.

while the room next to the entrance (immediately below the church) is filled with children doing homework……
