Gilmore Primary School

We meet at Gilmore Primary School every Sunday morning at 10.30 am for fellowship
followed by a light lunch at around midday.
Our Kids Church starts at 10.30 am and at 5:30 pm with fun games and Bible stories.
The evening service starts at 5.30 pm followed by dinner at around 7.00 pm.
A small team of volunteers from Gilmore Church supports the local community by serving breakfast to Gilmore Primary School kids once a week during school term. We take great pleasure in blessing up to 46 kids with this ministry every week and welcome the opportunity to give back to the school that supports our presence every week.
We support and partner men of God to obey Jesus’ commission to ‘go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation’ (Mark 16:15).
Each month we support David and Angela Armstrong as they minister to Aboriginal people in Mount Druitt and Chan and Ran Park as they minister to Kurdish people in Armenia.
We visit the Alexander Maconochie Centre each week to minister to prisoners and to conduct a regular Aboriginal-focused chapel service.
We support Yeddung Mura (Good Pathways) Aboriginal Corporation. Yeddung Mura aims to relieve disadvantage in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community in the ACT and surrounding region by providing ‘good pathways’ to clients facing unemployment, poverty, homelessness and hopelessness.
Gilmore Church helps reintegrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait prison inmates back into the community after they have served their sentences because we believe everyone deserves a second chance.
Being a disciple of Christ and his teachings is the foundation of Christianity. He taught that we need to be baptised in water (as He was) to symbolise a cleansing from sin, repentance, rebirth into a new life of faith and to be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.
Our women’s ministry is forging strong friendships and support for each other in our Christian walks.
We meet periodically for dinner, to share testimonies and listen to guest speakers.
Home and hospital visits are a regular part of our pastoral care ministry. All personal concerns are kept confidential.
We can also arrange provision of meals for our sick or needy families.
Our men’s ministry meets fortnightly on Thursdays at 7:30 pm for fellowship, prayer and Bible study.
We focus on how to be a Christian man in today’s world. We are a strong and committed group of mates and brothers in Christ.
We also meet periodically for dinner at local restaurants, and we organise a men’s retreat weekend once a year.
We have small home-based Bible study groups that meet regularly.
1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at 10.30 am in Rivett – teachings from Pastor Ross and Barbara on Christian living, followed by a light lunch and fellowship.
Thursday 6:30 pm at Gilmore primary school – fortnightly gathering to dive deeper on 1 Thessalonians (Verse by verse Bible study)
Prayer brings answers. We have a prayer meeting every Tuesday evening between 6.30 pm and 8.00 pm where we earnestly ‘stand in the gap’ for those who need prayer.
And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you (Luke 11:9)
If need prayer please get in touch with us.

Who we are
From small beginnings in 2011 Gilmore Church is now ministering to more than 200 people through two services each Sunday. While both services are open to all, and are broadly multicultural, the 5.30 pm service focuses specifically on our Aboriginal and Torres Strait community. Our heart is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait peoples to find a place of belonging, build relationships, realise their potential, demonstrate love in action and affect the world through the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
Our ministers Priestley and Deepa work tirelessly to bring the word of God to the community. They are supported and guided by pastors Ross and Barbara who bring 50 years’ ministry experience to Gilmore Church. Both couples have a strong passion for prayer that gets results; they preach through the scriptures that give revelation for our destiny; and they give pastoral care that is more than just a Sunday service for the whole family.
Our mission is to invite people to experience Jesus Christ.
Our vision is to ignite faith, love and joy in lives through the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
As a church in Tuggeranong and in fellowship with the Australian Christian Churches (Assemblies of God in Australia) we are in agreement with the doctrinal statements of our movement of churches. Visit www.acc.org.au for more information.
