Armidale City Church

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!


Our desire is to:

–       Be a place where people grow, the hurting are healed, the lonely find family and each person is valued.

–       Be a landmark in the community; loving and serving without an agenda.

–       Provide a climate in which worship and personal spiritual grow occur.

–       Empower Christians to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

–       Equip believers to purposefully influence our world with the love of Christ.

–       Be a cross- cultural, cross-generational church where people belong and connect.

Our Purpose:

Our purpose as a church is to be a passionate, relevant, Christ-centered Church that exists to lift up the name of Jesus and see people’s lives transformed.

ACC Ministries



Life groups embody the heart of ACC as we love God, love people, love life. In homes across the city and surrounds, people from all walks of life gather together to study the bible and do life together.



A vibrant young adults life group meets weekly around town, giving opportunity to chill out and have a break from all that study!



Men’s events are organised to get all the guys together, to connect, hang out and eat… mostly.




Once a year, Ps Mike and Bekk host a Partnership course, unpacking who we are as a church, what we do and how you can be involved at ACC. Speak to Ps Mike for more details.





KidzCity is an exciting place for your kids to be on a Sunday morning! There’s relevant and age appropriate Bible lessons, engaging activities, games and fun!



Every Friday night during school terms is our youth program. It starts at 7:00pm and no two weeks are the same!  Kids aged from 10 – 16 are welcome to join in the fun!



Ladies love to get together and throughout the year we have a range of woman’s events for you to enjoy!



Thanks to all those who serve in the life of the church. If you have some free time and would like to serve/volunteer, we would love to hear from you!




We maintain a high level of transparency at ACC and as such make our church constitution available for the public to view. We have also adopted the Australian Christian Churches Child Protection Policy as the governing policy of Armidale City Church to ensure we do everything we can to create a safe environment for all who attend ACC.
