Who are we?

Torquay Christian Fellowship (TCF) is a member church of the Baptist Union of Victoria. We also operate Torquay Early Learning Centre (TeLC), a 115 place long daycare and early learning centre/kindergarten under the auspices of Torquay Christian Fellowship Care Inc. (TCFCi) a non profit incorporated association.

Baptist churches are governed by the local congregation members and as such all church activities, the church facilities, TeLC and its operations are truly a service provided by and for the local surfcoast community.

Though TCF is a local Christian church, people of all faiths, or none, are welcome to explore the person ad claims of Jesus here, and we hope your experience is rich and lifegiving.

The video clip here is from March 2013 when we at TCF observed our 30th Anniversary.

Sunday Gatherings

The life of the church is to be found in the lives of everyone who comes, wherever and whenever they gather or meet. An important part of our expression of Christian faith is to regularly gather to encourage and encounter one another in the presence of God. We gather for a Sunday morning church service.

Time & Location

Our Sunday morning services are at 10am. Entry is from the rear carpark at 2 Pimelea Way (off 25 Grossmans Rd), Torquay VIC 3228. there is plenty of carparking on site directly accessible tot he entrance, and a short walk away around and behind our youth hub buildings.

Common Questions

We love children and want to have them feel as much a part of the life of TCF as any adult. They are welcome to participate, at their parents discretion, in all aspects of Sunday worship. During term time we offer a program of creativity and learning during part of the Sunday morning service. This is made available for ages 3 to Grade 6.
Most weeks the High School age youth are abel to spend time during the morning service in a small group setting with our Youth Pastor and other leaders exploring faith with a particular focus on the questions and interests of teens.
Access via ramped pathways is available to the main church entrance, and there is plenty of room inside to maneuver and access all areas. Wheelchair accessible toilets are provided in the main building, as well as the youth hub and childcare centre. A “T-Loop” is also installed in the central seating section of the main auditorium to assist hearing aid users.

What to expect

A typical service lasts about 90 minutes

Some songs are followed by announcements of upcoming events and a message from the Bible and experiences that relate to everyday life.

Communion is celebrated each week with bread and grape juice remembering the death of Christ. This is “Open to all who know Jesus and who want to know him the way we speak about him here”. You are more than welcome to take part or feel comfortable just observing what takes place.

Personal prayer is always available at the end of each service and we encourage you to stick around and get to know us over tea, brewed coffee or cordial before heading home.
