Before TCF was registered as a Church; a number of people used to meet together for worship at the Fontana Hotel in Torrevieja on Thursday nights.
The people later met for a while at Mil Palmeras. At that time, David Caldwell was the pastor.
TCF was officially registered in November.
Sunday services began. After a few ‘temporary’ locations; the Church rented the old chicken shop on Calle Zoa; and grew under the ministry of David and Gill Purdham.
After about 7 years, the Church had outgrown that location; as between 70 and 80 people were gathering regularly.
TCF moved to new rented premises at Calle San Luis 20.
David and Gill Purdham retired and returned to the UK.
John and Doreen Jessop came from Ware in the UK to pastor the Church; and TCF again grew to the point where 2 services were needed each Sunday to accommodate the congregation which grew to more than 150 people meeting regularly (up to 180 on special occasions).
In July, John and Doreen retired from TCF and Roy and Wendy Davies relocated from Glynneath in South Wales to lead the Church.
The Church has moved to beautiful new premises on Avenida de las Cortes Valencianas 68. The Opening Ceremony was held on 7th October.
The Church continues to grow in numbers and influence; and we are looking forward to seeing hundreds of people being influenced by the love of God as a result of the activities of TCF. We thank God for those who have contributed to the growth of TCF over the years.
TCF has a great history – and we are believing for an even greater future!
