Annual Events

TCF Qld holds a number of annual events for bereaved parents and families. Details of these events will be posted closer to the time on our Upcoming Events page.

Annual Grief & Loss Seminar

Our Annual Seminar is a half day program held every June designed to assist bereaved parents and families with grief and loss. The Seminar is open to all TCF members and families. The program has a guest speaker in the morning, followed by workshops after morning tea, concluding with the opportunity for participants to meet and mingle in a safe environment. Please see our News page for photos from past seminars and the Upcoming Events page for details of our next seminar.

World Wide Candle Lighting Service

The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting© service is an annual event held the second Sunday in December. It is an occasion that unites family and friends around the globe in lighting candles at 7pm local time for one hour to honour the memories of the children who have died and to celebrate their lives. If you are unable to attend a service, we encourage you to still light a candle wherever you are. See our News page for photos and videos from past Candle Lighting services.

Walk To Remember

Our annual Walk to Remember for our children who are gone too soon is held in April in New Farm Park, Brisbane. Following a walk around the park, we hold a sausage sizzle to allow members to mix and talk with each other. See our News page for photos from past Walks.

Charity Fundraising Golf Day

The TCF Charity Golf Day is an annual event to help us to raise the funds needed to cover our operating costs and allow us to continue supporting and caring for families grieving the loss of a child. Entry cost covers 18 rounds of golf, prizes, drinks and nibbles. Group and individual registrations accepted. Amateur players only. See our News page for photos from past Golf days.
