Project History

TBC has a long history of Children's and Youth Work and is an integral part of the church's vision. There are currently a wide variety of groups running Sunday and midweek including toddler group, children's work and youth work. We are also active in most of the local schools (3 primary, Teignmouth Community School and Trinity private school).

Generally the church is appreciated by, and involved in many ways in the local community. This is something we are looking to develop both in new and existing ways.

Structure & Vision

The youth and children's work at TBC is headed up by a Youth Specialist Minister, Glenda, (who is now part time) and works alongside Minister Jamie who is hugely supportive and active within all areas of community, youth & children's work.  Glenda has the oversight and cohesion between the groups. This is supported by a variety of Team Leaders and a large number of enthusiastic volunteers.
We aim to be involved and interwoven in the community, and to be 24/7 disciples of Jesus. Here are TBC we are keen to offer a placement that supports, encourages and develops gifts in the areas you have been given. We expect a self-motivated, hard worker but will do all we can to help this be a great learning opportunity, both personally, spiritually and educationally.
