For more information about being baptised check out our ‘Get Baptised‘ page.

A great way to get connected is to join a serving team! Though these are not the only ways you can serve God, getting started on one of these teams can help you take steps on your own faith journey.

Though we’d love to know your interest for any of these roles some roles do require specific skills and some (especially those working with kids) require police checks and safe church training. Let us know your interest and we can walk with you from there.

The Five Partnership Commitments at ACCC are:
1. Salvation – A commitment to following Jesus.
2. Discipleship – A commitment to ongoing spiritual growth.
3. Relationship – A commitment to connecting regularly with the broader church in our weekly Sunday service and our Life Groups.
4. Purpose – A commitment to serving the church generally and discovering your own gifts so we can help release you into areas of giftedness.
5. Stewardship – A commitment to supporting the church financially.

At ACCC we ask that you commit to a partnership with ACCC for the following reasons:

1. A Biblical Reason: Christ is committed to the church.

2. A Cultural Reason: It is an antidote to our society. We live in an age where very few want to be committed to anything…a job…a marriage…our country. This attitude has even produced a generation of “church shoppers and hoppers.” Membership swims against the current of the Western world’s “consumer religion.” It is an unselfish decision. Commitment always builds character.

3. A Practical Reason: It defines who can be counted on. Partnership identifies our family.

4. A Personal Reason: It produces spiritual growth. The New Testament places a major emphasis on the need for Christians to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth. You cannot be accountable when you’re not committed to any specific church family.

Our Pastor

Lead Pastor

Pastor James Middleton

James commenced as our Pastor in August 2019, initially as an interim pastor but eventually feeling the call to stay on as our permanent pastor.

James is married to Kelsey and they have a son, Toby. James is passionate about encouraging people to become disciples who make disciples. He believes in empowering others to lead and serve and desires to see many people involved in helping and growing our church to become all it can be, through God’s guidance.

He is also an avid follower of the West Coast Eagles and enjoys coffee, a lot.

James is employed 3 days a week, mostly working Sunday, Tuesday & Wednesday. Thursday is his specified day off which he takes very seriously, generally refraining from using his phone or computer so don’t be surprised if you can’t reach him on a Thursday.

To get in contact with Pastor James please use our Contact Page.

Our Approach

Though no two people’s journey is the same, many have found that an intentional approach to discipleship is more effective than a ‘see what happens’ approach. We’ve designed a discipleship process that enables us to meet people wherever they are at but then love them enough not to leave them there. Step by step we help them become more and more life Jesus. As person’s path may not be as directly linear as the approach suggests but the intentionality helps keep people heading in the right direction.
