Welcome to Torquay Christian Fellowship

Torquay Christian Fellowship is a member congregation of the Baptist Union of Victoria (BUV). People of all ages are important to us. Families, Children and Teens make up a significant part of the fellowship and we welcome everyone to ‘Come as you are’.

COVID-19

Praise God that at 10am from Sunday 29th November and onwards we will gather together again in a modified form of corporate worship!! How good is that!? In the anticipation and excitement of that, we wanted to give you some important information as to what will be happening:

Our worship time will run for approx. 1 hour.  Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled start to allow time to check in. We are restricted to maximum of 140 people indoors, (children under 12mths are not included in this capped number, they are welcome to attend without registering them).

We have researched what other fellowships around Australia are doing, and have decided that the most practical way to ensure you are able to attend, (until restrictions ease further), will be to book your attendance each week.  You will need to include any children over 12mths. As seats aren’t allocated when you book you will be ushered to seats on arrival to ensure we comply with COVID regulations.

Please book by clicking on the following link:

DANNY’S DESK
Declare Jesus – Develop Disciples – Glorify God
“Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.”
Psalm 119:105 NLT

Hello!

This Friday, our son Riley will have another operation to replace his pacemaker. A pacemaker is really mostly a battery, and after 12 years - the fact is – it is losing its’ charge. Come Saturday he will have a new one in and - as we in the McDowell household like to joke - will be moving a little faster!! (Don’t be alarmed - the medicos never leave a pacemaker ‘in-sit’ until it’s nearly flat!!)

A battery though, is a great illustration of how we need to be living our lives as followers of Jesus Christ. Though we’d like to think that we can ‘motor on’ at a rapid pace all the time, there will always be seasons when a ‘recharge’ is needed in order to continue to be as effective as we can be as witnesses of the Good News – the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

How do you recharge? Could I suggest to you that the best recharge you will ever receive is to get into the Word of God? 2 Timothy 3:16-17 tells us that: ‘All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realise what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 17 God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.’

Sure, there are heaps of other books that can help us to elaborate, expound and explain the themes of the Bible. And they can be very helpful. But first & foremost – it’s the Word of God - the Bible - that we need to ‘get into’ in order to have any hope of being all that we are called to be.

It’s my experience that when I read God’s Word; reflect on it and then respond to it – my faith and power in Him increases, and I find that I am able to be much more effective in my service to the King of Kings - and to His Kingdom. And when I lapse into not being so diligent in this ‘recharge’- my spirit becomes weak - and I can easily lose focus on what it is that God is calling me to be – His witness of the saving grace of Jesus Christ in this world.

So, the very best way to recharge body, mind, and spirit is to get into a regular habit of reading the Word of God which is “… alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” (Hebrews 4:12 NLT). That’s what our small group ministry is all about – reading the Bible – together. Please talk to me about getting involved.

We take time to recharge just about everything else in our lives - our phones, tools, tablets - even our cars! But what about our actual lives? Take some time today - to recharge your soul and get into God’s Word?

Have a great week!

Danny
