About Ross River Anglican Church

Ross River Anglican Church is a young church. We were founded in 2006 by the Rev Tim Adkins with just three families on the roll. But although we are a young Church, we are built on the oldest foundation there is, the gospel of the Lord Jesus. Because of this, even from small beginnings, we were excited and hopeful about our future as a healthy and growing church.

Throughout these early years as the church continued to grow, we also began to add various ministry areas in our desire to be a healthy and growing church. Home groups were started as people met during the week to read the Bible, pray for each other and enjoy fellowship. Along with these groups for adults, we saw a growing ministry to the children of our church families, and our Sunday morning Kids Program became a noisy, exciting and much cherished part our life together. A Friday night Youth Group was also commenced to help our High School youth encourage each other in their relationship with Jesus.

In 2012 we reached the stage of being able to appoint our first full-time Minister. After a search process, the Rev Scott Hedley was invited by the Church to take up the position. He was appointed by the Bishop of North Queensland in May of 2012 and he and his family moved from Sydney to take up the position.

With a growth in our ministries across the Church, there was also the priority for us of fulfilling our responsibility to raise up the next generation of vocational gospel workers. In 2013 we appointed our first Ministry Apprentice (employed under the MTS banner). Phil Stolk was licensed by the Bishop and joined our staff team on a full-time basis.

Although things have certainly changed over the years, our confidence and excitement for our future remains as certain as the gospel we are committed to keep proclaiming. As we continue to grow, we are excited to embrace the difficulties that change brings, but it is this focus on the Lord Jesus that is the one thing we are committed to see always remains the same.

Luke 1:76-78

"And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him, to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven"
