Our History

In April 1975, BMW missionaries Gordon and Sunny Weigand arrived in Tralee. Sandy Erb came in September 1978. In December 1983 missionaries Tom and Nancy Murphy, came to join the work in Kerry. Tralee Bible Fellowship was the name the group went by initially, but later it was changed to Tralee Bible Church. Brian and Lori Wagner BMW missionaries arrived 1985. In the summer of 1988 Bill and Gloria Doran came to join the Tralee based Church planting team. In the summer of 1989 John and Amanda Herrick arrived. Previously the Church met in a rented bungalow in Ballinorig for worship. In 1991 the church met at 53 Ashe Street. In 1999 Tralee Bible Church had its first official members. Presently the congregation meets in Collis Sandes House, Oakpark Tralee. In 2010 we were accepted into membership with the Association of Baptist Churches in Ireland. Later in that same year we voted to change the name to Tralee Baptist Church. Among other ministries, we have a Bible Study on Wednesday nights, separate studies in the week for men and ladies and a Sunday School ministry.
