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 Update - 10 June 2021:

The easing of restrictions by the Vic Govt for religious gatherings are: '.... No more than 75 people indoors with a density quotient of 1 person per 4sqm.'

With the worship/tech team and those involved in upfront roles taking up nearly 1/4 of that number, this doesn't allow us to have many other people to form a congregation onsite.

In light of that, the leadership team has taken the decision to continue streaming live via Zoom @ 10am - with only those involved in platform and tech duties in the building - until restrictions relax enough to allow us to meet together as one body.

Praise God for the blessing He has provided in the technology that allows us to worship 'together' from multiple sites.

Please keep praying for our leaders - TCF; Local; State; Federal and World - as we each play our part in calling on God to walk through this with us.

Upcoming Church Dinner:  TCF will be hosting a dinner for the fellowship on 24 June.  At the moment numbers are capped at 75 due to hospitality COVID restrictions.  Book now on the link below:

Declare Jesus – Develop Disciples – Glorify God

“… and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others.”
Mark 10:44-45 NLT

Hello!

I was having lunch with Julie a while ago at Westfield in Geelong. We were at ‘Paper, Cup & Co’, who – by the way – have THE best iced coffees I have ever tasted!! Combined with the lovely food and friendly staff there, it made for a great meal. Check them out! (This is not a paid endorsement, but go and have lunch there – you won’t be disappointed!)

We needed to get a few other things while we were there and as we wandered around, I was struck by the industrious and friendly way that the cleaning staff went about doing their jobs – pushing around those huge trolleys with mops and brooms; spray-gun thingys; and all manner of mysterious cleaning paraphernalia! In a role that we sometimes only ever really notice when it is not done properly - (and maybe a role that not many of us would want to do ourselves?) - the way in which they went about their work with an energy; a thoroughness; and a warm smile was a joy to see. And I couldn’t help but remember the cleaner at my primary school – Mr Johnston. He was an awesome dude who was always up for a chat and who made cleaning a bit of an adventure as we (boys in those days) put out the yard bins on Mondays and brought them back in on Fridays. Great guy!

No doubt we try as much as we’re able to engage people with a smile and a greeting. We try as much as we’re able to be thorough in everything we do and to do it joyfully. (No, we don’t always get it all right at the same time!) But what encourages me is the way in which our Saviour - Jesus Christ - took the time to notice people; to talk to them; and to praise them. The woman at the well; Nicodemus; the woman who reached out from the crowd; children; sinners; publicans; the demon-possessed. He spoke into each of their lives and let them know that who they were and what they did was important to God’s kingdom. Paul tells us in Philippians 2:4 - “Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.” If Jesus was able to do that so well, then as followers of His, isn’t that what we want to spire to also do?

I’ve talked before about taking time to notice those who sit on the fringes of our work; school; sporting; social; and yes, church circles and environments. This is a call to actively seek out those who do the seemingly insignificant things; those who carry out the ‘minor’ roles; ‘those who aren’t ‘up the front’ and then to speak words of support, inspiration and praise into what they’re doing in the name of Jesus. Because - at the end of the day - we are all serving God with the unique gifts that He has given to us. “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10 NIV).

Have a great week!

Declare Jesus – Develop Disciples – Glorify God

“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labour: 10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.”
Ecclesiastes 4: 9-10

Hello!

I spent a deeply significant moment of time last week with a couple of friends. These are two people whom I love, respect, and who I give permission to speak into my life. ‘Two are better than one…’ (Well, there was three of us, but you get what I mean!)

As we navigate life, we might have lots of ‘colleagues’, ‘associates’, ‘acquaintances’ - or even ‘accomplices!’ But what about ‘friends?’ You may have known someone for many years and a strong, valued and trusted friendship has grown, or you may have only just recently met someone with whom those bonds are steadily developing. I think that it’s also ‘on’ each one of us to seek out friends (like mine above) who not only love us, (Proverbs 17:17) but who - through that love - also keep us accountable (Proverbs 19:20) in our Christian walk - and in our daily relationships with each other. Confronting? For sure! But in order to grow, aren’t these the kinds of friend we want in our lives, as well as lovingly seek to be in theirs?

Don’t ever take friendship for granted! Take a moment - right now - to think about your best friend (or two, or three!) They have faults don’t they!? (So do you!) Maybe they’ve hurt you along the journey (maybe you’ve hurt them too?) (1 Peter 4:8-10). But don’t dwell on that. Instead, think about the months and the years you’ve invested in each other; the shared adventures; the times you stood up for each other; the honesty; the laughs; the tears; the growth; the love. Jesus said: “… Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command.” (John 15:12-14).

When we earnestly seek God in everything we do, we will discover His custom-made calling for each one of us - Job, family and all the rest. But whatever that calling is, (and it will be exciting and fulfilling), the highest calling we could possibly have, is to be a friend - and to be a friend who knows and loves Jesus as their Lord and Saviour - and who models that to others.

Can I invite you now to think of that friend? But don’t stop there - do something for them. Send them an email, a text. Make a phone call. Get online and order something special to be delivered to their door. Forgive or seek forgiveness. Seek restoration. Whatever it is – do it!

How - and to whom - is the Holy Spirit leading you to be a friend to today?

Have a great week!​
Danny
