Vision 2022

TOMS Anglican Churches is a group of four evangelical, Bible-based churches in western Sydney. We are a dynamic group of Christians from all walks of life who are focused on making Christ known to the thousands of people who live around us in Cranebrook, Castlereagh, Jordan Springs and Ropes Crossing. We are committed to teaching the Bible, and doing so with an emphasis on outreach and service as together we mature in following the Lord Jesus.

Our church consists of much more than a sermon though, and we'd love to have you join us in person. Please visit the contact page for contact details and a map.

TOMS Mission Statement

Meet our team

Adam taylor

Senior Minister

Adam is married to Samantha and they have three fabulous daughters. The numbers are against him for family movie night and potential camping holidays, but Brooklyn Nine Nine is a fun meeting place. Before training for full-time ministry Adam enjoyed four years as a high school maths teacher. Nowadays the maths is increasingly valuable on the golf course! Adam likes time together with his family and chilling with friends, cheering on the Giants, pulling his hair out over the Wests Tigers, watching Netflix at the end of the day with Sam and has trouble resisting anything sweet. Above all Adam loves learning from and teaching others about the Master Teacher – Jesus Christ, who he has known as his Lord and Saviour since he was 15. Adam has been the Senior Minister at TOMS since 2010, having previously served as an Assistant Minister at West Pennant Hills and Liverpool.

Toby Campbell

Associate Minister

Toby loves talking with people about Jesus, especially about why Jesus’ death and resurrection are so important. He is married to Carolyn and they have three daughters and a son. Toby likes AFL, camping, making music, reading and solving puzzles. Serving at TOMS since 2014, he has previously been involved in ministry at Redfern and Engadine.

Josh Goscombe

Youth and Families Minister

Josh joined TOMS at the start of 2013 after living in North West Australia (near ‘Red Dog’!) for four years with his family. He finished school in 2011 and his studies at Youthworks College in 2015. After becoming a Christian as a child through hearing the gospel from his parents and many faithful Sunday School and Youth Group leaders, he is now super passionate about sharing that gospel with young people everywhere and seeing them enjoy the same privilege he had of knowing Jesus from such a young age. In his spare time, he enjoys listening to music, playing any kind of sport, and watching movies – preferably kids’ ones!

Larissa Goscombe

Children's Minister

Larissa grew up in and was trained at St George North where she had a positive experience of kids ministry, and great people pointing her to Jesus. Having loved Jesus since birth, she has always wanted to teach kids about Him. Her favourite part is making God exciting and relevant to children! In 2016, Larissa married Josh, moved to TOMS, and completed her theological studies. She enjoys family, friends, surfing, crochet, running, tap dancing and playing drums.

Jim South

Assistant Minister

Jim began ordained ministry in Manly at the end of 1967 and married Ann the following year. After serving in various parishes he spent 33 years of ministry as Senior Minister at St Paul’s Emu Plains, from where he retired at the end of 2006. He and Ann moved house and joined the TOMS family. Jim is active in Bible teaching and has taken on responsibility for the Safe Ministry and Child Protection provisions for the parish. Ann is involved with women’s ministry and has a mentoring role with ministry wives which is wider than the parish.
