OUR MINISTRY PRIORITIES
We have monthly dinners on Sunday nights where we enjoy fellowship together. It's a time to pray together and invite non-christian friends to hear and discuss the gosepl.
At Tamworth Baptist Church we are committed to "discipling and growing godly youth" (DAGGY). On Sunday afternoons we hold DAGGY for the high school students in our church. This program has a focus on a 1-2-1 reading of the bible mixed with fun group activities.
Life groups are a weekly bible study, often with a meal beforehand, where you have discussions on the bible, build relationships and get to pray for one another. This a great way to get to know those in your church, share in their life and encourage each other.
JANELLE STREET CENTRE
In 2011, our church opened a daycare centre nearby to the church. This has helped further grow relations in our local community making it easier to invite people to community dinners. Teaching the children bible stories about who God is and about prayer is so important in a world becoming more and more secular. The preschool graduation services have been a great way to invite people to church and hear God's word.
1-2-1 BIBLE READING
We believe that relationship is so important when opening up and sharing about where the bible is challenging each other in our sinful lives, which is why 1-2-1 is crucial! Building a deep relationship with someone as you study the bible together allows you to be supported, rebuked, encouraged and held accountable.
Mums n Bubs Group
We love families and we love discipling. In this group mums get together and read God's word while the kids play together. A great way to learn how to live life as a Christian and a mum.
WHAT OUR SUNDAY SERVICE LOOKS LIKE
We sing a combination of old hymns and newer songs.
At the moment we are going through the book of Matthew.
We take communion together on the first and third weeks of the month.
This is a time where we get to clarify parts of the sermon we did not understand or ask questions about what is going on in our lives or the world.
This is a chance to become more connected as a family as we learn what is happening in our church life and in the lives of the missionaries we support. Send any announcements in to TBCbulletin@gmail.com
We want our kids to grow, know, love and serve Jesus with their lives. Kids Time seeks to help parents in doing this by providing age appropriate lessons on the bible. Currently, they are going through Matthew as well. We want our kids to be apart of the church so they come back after the sermon and give a short, creative presentation to the church. We also run a creche for toddlers.
We are a family here at TBC and church is more than our Sunday service. We love to talk about how God's word has challenged us or what is going on in each others lives at morning tea or by having lunch together.
Monthly Service on Sunday Afternoons
This is where our Karen brothers and sisters get together to sing, read the bible and listen to God's word in their native language. We are so encouraged by the faithful attendance of our Karen brothers and sisters despite the language barrier on Sunday mornings. We are overjoyed that they can have a service to worship God in a way that is easier for them. We recently have begun sending money to a refugee camp in Thailand to support our Karen families that are still there.
Nita is spreading the gospel in Uganda to the Karamojong people. Recently, our church has been involved in raising funds to help the Karamajong people in famine by planting crops and feeding children.
Belinda Gonzales and Darrel Mole work in the local high schools teaching scripture to teenage students. But their ministry extends beyond that to the teachers and parents of the school.
The Nixes are spreading the gospel in South East Asia and regularly send prayer points to the church to keep us updated. However, for their safety we are careful with what information we provide online.
REHOC is a children's orphanage in Zambia that we have supported for years. Previously, our church has done short term mission trips to help with construction, living and education needs for the children.
