I Will – Jesus’ Promises to Us
Jesus made many promises to His people. He promised to provide for the needy, to fill the empty, to free the anxious, to uplift the weary, to comfort the discouraged, to inspire the faithful, and to be present with the lonely. For Christians today, they are all at once the greatest source of solace, the strongest reason for trust, and the most powerful weapon against unbelief. As we explore these promises, we will be challenged to believe them, heed our responsibility and walk by faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Bible Trek in 80 Days
The aim of this study is to show that God has a plan for our earth and its people, and to follow the unfolding of that plan from Adam to Christ and His Church, as recorded for us in the Bible. The series contains 78 Bible studies in 4 sections, each study interspersed with questions to stir group discussion or personal contemplation and each requiring about an hour for meaningful absorption.
A. The Grand Escape – 20 studies from Abraham to David showing the birth of Israel and her development into a kingdom, taken from Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1st and 2nd Samuel.
B. Thrones and Stones – 14 studies on the history of the kingdom of Judah and her role in the preparation for the coming of the Messiah, taken from 1st and 2nd Samuel, 1st and 2nd Chronicles and 1st and 2nd Kings, with references to Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Habakkuk, Haggai and Zechariah.
C. Journey with Jesus – 31 studies, broadly chronological, on the ministry of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, from His birth to His resurrection, in 3 sections – The Pioneer, The Ambassador and The Redeemer.
D. The Explosive Church – 13 studies on the birth, development and spread of the Church from Jerusalem to Rome, taken from the Acts of the Apostles with some references to the Epistles.
E. The Covenants of God – a special series on the 5 covenants made by God to Noah, to Abraham, to Moses, to David and the New Covenant.
The narrative is colloquial and spiced with the Bible’s own brand of subtle humour, concentrating on action which shows the continuous development of God’s plan for humankind towards the ultimate reign of His Kingdom, and revealing the message of God’s greatness, wisdom, power and love for all His creatures. Constant Scriptural references will assure the reader of its verity. Its hope is that, with whetted appetite, the reader may continue to enjoy even wider study of the exciting Word of God.

When we grasp the generosity of God, we realise that even our own homes and our tables can become sacred spaces in which the Kingdom of God is made tangible. Jesus also encourages his disciples to consider how we might use our wealth for eternal purposes. Investing our money into people, seeking to see their lives transformed by gospel.
In Search of Meaning – Ecclesiastes
In this series, we begin our journey in seeking to answer to the big question of life. What is life and its meaning?Where is meaning and purpose to be found? The “teacher will explore areas of life such as pleasure, wealth, work… and his ultimate conclusion is the life under the sun without God is meaningless. That we have to look elsewhere to find meaning and that place is Jesus.
Transformed Life – The Book of Romans
Live bold, courageous, passionate lives! Paul’s letter to the Romans is arguably the single most important piece of literature in the history of the world. And Chapter 8 is perhaps its greatest section of the book. Paul begins by reminding us that there is no condemnation is Christ. Then he speaks of the power of God Spirit to transform us, Our future glory in Christ, the power of his transforming love. That since the beginning of time God saw us, knew us, chose us to be his and loves us with the most powerful love in the universe. Be overwhelmed by God and transformed by Him and for Him.
This is Us
As we start the new year together as a community of faith, we as a leadership team, want to invite you to come on a journey together with us; seeking to know our vision, our strategy and our goals. The idea is that we will be united around Jesus together allowing Him to transform us individually and as a community of faith so that we might see more people, in more places, making more responses to Jesus.

Greatest Prayers Ever Prayed
Here are six Bible Studies looking at some of the greatest prayers ever prayed.
Hosea – The Love Story
It’s a story about God’s vow and His church, the bride. A bride of value and beauty, who is prone to wander in rebellion, but always in the thoughts and affection of God’s redeeming love. In Hosea we encounter a love like no other. God’s love never gives up and never gives in. Boundless and ever-present He pursues His people at all costs to capture our hearts and call us home.
Mission – Everyday people on mission!
Over the next few weeks we are seeking to go on a journey together as a community of faith to discover how we can become more effective as God’s people – to be His salt and light – bearers of good news in this world. God has created you in such a way and placed you where you live to reach people that only you can reach. We want to release and empower you for that mission. It will be epic!
Moved by God
TCBC is on the move, it is time for us to engage in some serious cross carrying for the good of our neighbourhood and for the glory of God. The hope of this study series is that more people will catch the excitement that is already building in this place. We are praying that in and through this series we as a community of faith will begin to put flesh on the there that God has in store for us.
Romans: Grace to You
The book of Romans is literally all about the gospel of grace. It is designed to help you understand the gospel, experience the gospel and live in light of the gospel. Like many of Paul’s letters the first half of the book is mostly theology and theological reflection. Paul answers the questions what is the gospel? Who needs the gospel? How does the gospel work? The next half of the book is more practical and is dedicated to exploring what changes happen in peoples lives when they truly understand the gospel of grace.
This is Jesus
This 4 week course is designed to cut through some of the fallacies and misconceptions and introduce you to the ‘real Jesus’. The Jewish Jesus, who grew up in a backwater town called Nazareth. The Jesus whom tax collectors and prostitutes loved, and religious leaders hated. The Jesus who amazed, captivated, puzzled and offended the people who met him. The Jesus who countless people have loved,adored and worshiped throughout the centuries. The Jesus of Martin Luther King Jnr, Desmond Tutu and Bono. The Jesus we meet in the scriptures. My friends – THIS IS JESUS!
