Ministries

KIDS

Our aim is to build meaningful relationships with every child and to nurture and build his or her relationship with God. Kids learn best when they’re in a safe and fun environment with caring volunteers who want to get to know your child by name. We work with parents and guardians, as well as with our church pastors and leaders, to present Jesus Christ in a meaningful way.

Through music and fun experiences and the active participation of each child we seek to create memories that will last a lifetime.

PLAYGROUP

Playgroups help your child to develop and learn through play, as well as giving you the opportunity to meet other parents in a relaxed and informal atmosphere to share parenting skills and experiences.

The TBC playgroup offers parents (and others, including grandparents and caregivers) the opportunity to bring their pre-schoolers for two hours of social activities in a warm and friendly environment. Occasional excursions are also arranged.

Playgroup operates Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 9:30am-11:30am, during school term.

We are passionate about helping young people grow personally and spiritually. Through our youth ministry we reach out to young people in our community with the love of God. We aim to help them explore ideas and values, while developing their faith.

 

Looking for a place to connect and grow? Join our ministry for young people in Years 6-12. You’ll experience people like you who are eager to grow in their relationship with Christ, as well as a group that provides encouragement and support for everyone around them.

YOUTH

YOUNG ADULTS

Young Adults is a group of young people who love Jesus and are seeking to grow in the walk of discipleship. We meet on Thursday nights for an engaging Bible study as we discover God’s word together and seek to grow and become more and more like Jesus.​

We enjoy a monthly social activity. Why not come along and meet other like minded young people who love Jesus and are seeking to become more and more like Him?

We’d love to meet you!

If you would like to get in touch with TBC Young Adults you can contact the church office.

YOUNG FAMILIES

Young families are at an exciting and immensely rewarding stage of life, which we recognise also offers challenges at times.

At Templestowe Baptist Church we value and support our Young Families by offering courses to equip them in areas of parenting and marriage, and hosting various family events to strengthen community relationships, whilst encouraging a deeper personal relationship with God.

KYB

KYB (Know Your Bible) is a global, inter-denominational ladies Bible study group that meets at the church every Tuesday from 9:45am during the school term. Ladies meet for a cuppa then break into four groups and are led through the study. At 11:00am we come together again to listen to a short summary.

​​

Studies generally alternate between an Old Testament book one term, followed by a New Testament book.​

New members are always welcome!

ENGLISH CLUB

The TBC English Club meets at the church each week during school term and provides a friendly and welcoming environment for newcomers to Australia who wish to make new friends and develop their English-language listening, speaking and reading skills. Classes meet on Wednesday mornings. Due to Covid19 restrictions, classes are divided into 2 sessions, 9:30-10:30 am. for Intermediate and Advanced learners, 11:00-12:00 for Beginner and Basic learners. Tutors are trained by AMES Australia’s Community Volunteer Tutor Training Program.
 

We arrange regular guest speakers, providing practical advice about life in Australia. These have included doctors, dentists, dietitians and government agency workers.


New members are always welcome.

PRAISE AND WORSHIP

Our worship ministry aims to glorify God through high-quality worship services each Sunday. This has been a priority of the church since our earliest years, and we have nurtured some well-known Australian Christian songwriters and worship leaders.

We are currently blessed with fine musicians and singers who use their gifts each week to lead our congregations towards a closer connection with Jesus.

 

Please talk to one of our church pastors or leaders if you wish to offer your talents for this ministry.
