Trellis Membership

Support Us!
Help us in bringing Biblical Counselling Resources to those who need it the most.

We Appreciate your Prayers!

As we continue to serve the Free Reformed Church community and grow as an organisation, we know that we cannot do anything without the strength of our God as He carries us on this journey. We are incredibly grateful for your prayers that we may continue to serve with humility and love in everything that we do. Please continue to bring us before the Lord in prayer, asking for His strength and provision so that we may be a blessing to those in need.

Donations are Welcome!

Prayer is the best way that you can be supporting us. We are incredibly grateful for prayers, yet we also appreciate any financial support our Free Reformed Church community can provide. If you are willing and able to support Trellis with once-off or regular donations, please contact us to discuss our donation process. We are filled with gratitude seeing our church community come together to help the vulnerable; we value your support. Thank you.

How is my money used?

You may be doubtful about providing financial support if you are unsure about how your money is being used! We understand that and believe in being transparent with our members and donors. One way that we do this is by providing an annual report each year.

Your money is used to produce, source, and maintain high quality mental health resources, including the development of courses and workshops. We are incredibly blessed to be able to employ staff from within the Free Reformed Church community who have knowledge in biblical counselling. With your support we are able to continue to grow and work in this sphere.

Does my money go towards employing counsellors?

At the moment, we do not provide a counselling service. Your support will help us to grow and we pray that one day we may grow to employ counsellors from within the Free Reformed Church community.

Right now, our energy and focus is on developing and providing resources and education in the biblical counselling space. So that you may find the support and counsel that you need, we do recommend counsellors that we believe to provide quality biblical counselling. These counsellors have been carefully selected and we trust that they provide counselling that is consistent with what we believe as reformed Christians.

I am concerned that Trellis is taking over from the role of the Church and the Office Bearers.

We understand that you may be hesitant to support us, and have some significant concerns, if we are stepping in the way of God’s calling for the church and office-bearers. We appreciate these concerns and have thought very carefully about what our role is compared to the role of the Church. We see our task as one of support and education, sharing resources and providing training so that churches and office bearers are further equipped in their role of caring for those who are hurting.

What is the benefit for me?

Especially if you want to be a member of our association, it is worth knowing about what return you might get from this investment. We offer our members 25% off on all courses and events, and you will have voting rights for new board members.

Trellis Annual Memberships

We also offer a membership option for members of the Free Reformed Churches of Australia who would like to support us on a regular basis, while also having access to beneficial resources from us. We believe in adding value into the lives of our community, so we are thankful to share that we are now offering ‘membership benefits’ to say thank you for your support!

How do I become a Member?

There is an approval process involved in signing up as a member. This is because we are operating as an Association within the bond of the Free Reformed Churches of Australia. If you are a member of the Free Reformed Church community and interested in supporting Trellis through a membership, all you have to do is fill out the application form and once our Membership Officer has approved the application, we will send you an invoice for the annual membership fee.
