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 pagefor contact details and a map.
Meet our team
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.
Youth and Families Minister
James grew up thinking a lot about 'Why are we here?' and was scared about life after death. That radically changed when he heard Philippians 1:21 preached and understood the gospel for the first time during High School. Since then he has been living and training to share that great news with anyone else who will hear. That led him to become a Primary School Teacher and go to Bible College where he met his wonderful wife Sarah. He joined TOMS as the Youth and Families Minister at the start of 2020 seeking to teach the gospel to Kids & Youth and train them for a lifetime of knowing Jesus as their King. In his spare time, he enjoys eating anything his wife Sarah cooks, listening to quality music, reading and playing video games. He has previous been involved in ministry in South-West Sydney and Sutherland.
Children’s’ Ministries Leader
Twelve years ago, after relocating to Cranebrook, Alisa discovered TOMS when looking for a playgroup. Snuggled in amongst homes and parklands TOMS welcomed her and she stayed. Many years later and with a love for sharing Jesus with children she now leads the Children’s’ Ministries.
She is married to Glen and together they have 5 children between them.
Through the bumps and turns in life, God never let her go and she wants to share Him with all children from Ropes to the River.
You might see her at any of the schools within our parish…at Llandilo PS, Braddock PS, Henry Fulton PS, Samuel Terry PS, Castlereagh PS or Ropes Crossing PS…teaching Scripture at the SRE times. She’d love to see you, so if you have time, say hello!
