Where everyone is someone and Jesus Christ is Lord!
TCM has a great Resources Centre which is available for use any time that the building is open. There is someone on hand from the Resource Centre Team each Sunday morning ready to help you.
We have Bible study materials, family-friendly movies, Christian fiction, Veggie Tales and more, all free and available for borrowing.
The main purpose of the Resources Centre is to support the mission of the church and its ministries. There is a wide range of resources available, which reinforce the church’s message and encourage those who want to dig a little deeper. The resources include DVDs which provide entertainment that uplifts spirits and enlightens minds rather than conflicting with our Christian values.
The Resources Centre Team is a ministry that requires dedicated volunteers with a heart for people as well as a love of reading. People dealing with the difficult experiences of life often will read a book before they seek counsel, and members of the team are able to provide kind words and compassion as well as directions to the appropriate resources. The right book with a biblical perspective may help people through a bumpy part of life’s journey or help them realise if there is a need for further pastoral care.
We are thankful for any donations of CDs, DVDs and books.
You can search our current catalogue of resources online using the widget below. No login name or password is required to do so. However, if you want to check-out the books online, you would have to create these. Checking-out resources online is useful (but not essential) for the running of the Resources Centre, as it allows users to check stock more accurately. Though we have the ‘sign-out’ function online, we still keep the good old ‘sign-out book’ and continue to run the faith-based borrowing system – having faith that what is borrowed will be returned.
Thanks to the hard work of Clive Birks, who continued the late Colin Wood’s passion of researching the history of the Thomas Cooper Memorial Church, we have a historical archive, including newspaper clippings, administrative records and other written documents, detailing the historical events in the life of TCM.
To view the archive, please contact the Admin Team who will arrange access for you.
TCM is now a nominated ‘Collection Point’ for Book Aid, and there is a collecting box marked ‘BOOK AID’ in the Resources Centre. If you have unused Bibles and/or Christian books, please place them in this box or contact the Admin Team for further details.
