Seniors

“A grey head is a crown of glory; It is found in the way of righteousness.”

Proverbs 16:31

At TBC we have a thriving community of seniors, who are served and are serving through a variety of events and activities. We want everyone to be included in a community where each person can thrive.

God has given you unique gifts and life experiences that are important to our life here. To the extent you’re willing and able, we would love to invite you to use those gifts among us, both to continue your own personal growth, and to awaken the God-given potential of others.

We’re all about relationships, and we know that often in the third and fourth ages of life, time needs to be taken to recognise and meet particular needs. God’s heart is to bring healing and fullness to everyone.
