The Seventh Sunday of Trinity
This weeks Gospel reading is Matthew 13.31-33,44-52 Jesus tells parables that seek to convey what the kingdom of heaven is ‘like’ or ‘similar to’. Some are about the way it grows and spreads, others stress its value compared to anything else in life.
The Sixth Sunday of Trinity
This weeks Gospel Reading is Matthew 13.24-30,36-43 Jesus tells a seed-related parable about the kingdom of God, and provides its explanation: that evil and its agents in the world will persist alongside the good, despite the coming of the kingdom of God that Jesus was proclaiming.
The Fifth Sunday of Trinity
This weeks Gospel reading is Matthew 13.1-9,18-23 Jesus tells the crowds a parable of seed being sown onto different sorts of ground. Later, he explains it to the disciples as an illustration of how different people respond to hearing the word of the kingdom.

The Fourth Sunday of Trinity
This week’s gospel reading is Matthew 11:16-19, 25 to end. Jesus notes that both he and John the Baptist failed to meet people’s expectations. Jesus thanks God that the point of his ministry has been revealed to the simple rather than the wise, and calls on people to learn how to live from him.
The Third Sunday of Trinity
Matthew 10.40-42 - Welcome and Hospitality
Whoever welcomes you, welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophets reward and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple - truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.
Second Sunday of Trinity
This weeks gospel reading is Matthew 10.24-39 Matthew continues Jesus’ teaching on mission to the world. Jesus points out that the disciples must expect some opposition, including possibly from their own families, since Jesus himself has been opposed and called names. He reminds them that God loves and values them as a father.
The first Sunday of Trinity
This weeks gospel reading is Matthew 9.35–10.8,(9-23) Jesus’ friends go out to share all that he has taught them with the world.
