Perth Alliance Church English is part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance of Australia (C&MA).

Under the auspices of the Woden Valley Alliance Church, a demographic study led by Roy Towner was undertaken in 1989-90 as groundwork for establishing a ‘daughter church’ in the Tuggeranong valley.

In October 1990 the first service of the Tuggeranong Alliance Church was held at Lake Tuggeranong College. In 1991, the Rev Rod Russell-Brown was called to become the first pastor, and he commenced ministry in February 1992.

In the first few years, the church was managed by a committee from the ‘mother’ church. The church became autonomous in March 1992, with the adoption of the C&MA constitution and the appointment of Elders.

In 1996, the church relocated to the Tuggeranong Community Centre to take advantage of its superior facilities. Land soon became available in Calwell and between November 1997 and February 1999 a new church building was constructed on the site. The building was dedicated to the glory of God on Sunday 14 February 1999.

In February 2000, the Rev Rod Russell-Brown was elected President of the C&MA. The church subsequently called John Coman its pastor and was inducted in February 2001. John focused on building the relational strength of the church.

John stepped down from ministry in December 2003 and Pastor Ross Sutherland was employed as a part-time church administrator in January 2004. In October 2004, the church officially appointed Pastor Ross as its pastor.

In 2006, the church adopted a vision to establish new campuses and in 2007 a City Church was established.  The church initially met in a building adjacent to the City bus interchange and later in the Ainslie Arts Centre.  

In 2013, the City congregation decided – in recognition of its growing maturity – to operate as an independent church of the C&MA, allowing it the freedom to develop its own unique flavour and approach to ministry.  The Calwell congregation blessed and affirmed the decision of the City congregation, and also resolved to call Tony Mckeown as Pastor of the Calwell congregation.

Over the past 20 years, the church has sent out many short-term and long-term missionaries, and pastoral workers, around Australia and the world.
