The Teachers Christian Fellowship was established in June 1935, as a complementary organisation to the Inter-Schools Christian Fellowship which had also just been formed under the auspices of Scripture Union. A Scripture Union girls staff worker Heather Drummond called a meeting of interested teachers to form the TCF. The purpose of the fellowship was to link together Christian teachers for prayer and fellowship. TCF members held house parties, developed a resource library, and joined evangelistic programs ran by SU and ISCF. In 1948 an interstate TCF conference was held, and a national Australian TCF was formed in conjunction with the Inter-Varsity Fellowship. ATCF published a journal, the Journal of Christian Education. In 1976 ATCF decided to separate from IVF/AFES. in the 1980s a travelling staff worker for TCF NSW was appointed, in co-operation with Scripture Union. TCF NSW continues to promote a Christian perspective in education and support Christian teachers. It is interested in all areas of education from a Christian perspective. https://www.tcfofnsw.org.au/about/
