Armidale City Church is affiliated with Australian Christian Churches (formerly known as Assemblies of God Australia). Armidale City Church is a contemporary Christian church located in Armidale NSW, the heart of the New England region of NSW. Our church is made up of people of all ages and cultures and we warmly welcome new people. We believe that God has raised up the Armidale City Church to be a loving, worshipping, strong and growing local church that is a blessing to the community.
We are a cross-generational church which aims to cater for every generation in our services. We also have a wide range of nationalities represented in our congregation.
At the beginning of 2015, Ps Mike and Bekk Baumgartner relocated from Canberra to take on the pastorship of Armidale Community Church after the retirement of Ps David Logan. Ps David was the senior pastor of Armidale Community Church for 15 years and in that time set up a strong foundation for this new season. Ps Ray and Margaret Walton, also from Canberra, came to Armidale with Ps Mike and Bekk to lead the church through the transition of leadership.
After 8 months, Ps Ray and Margaret moved back to Canberra and Ps Mike and Bekk became the senior pastors of ACC.
Ps. Mike and Bekk have both previously served in various capacities in churches both in Canberra and South Africa. They both have a heart to see communities impacted and transformed by the love of God and the practical outworking of that love through the church. They have two young boys, Caleb and Josiah.
In November 2015 our name was changed from Armidale Community Church to Armidale City Church. The name change was to signify the new season for our church and a decalration that, as a church, we want to be relevant, uplifting and involved in the whole span of the city of Armidale. We maintain our heart to be a community but our vision is for our whole city.
With fresh leadership and renewed excitement, we are believing for even greater things for Armidale City Church and the city of Armidale!
