The Melbourne Indigenous Church Fellowship continues the long tradition of Aboriginal church communities in Melbourne that provide a spiritual home, Christian fellowship and practical support in a culturally appropriate context.

At the heart of the community is Tjilgamooda, the Aboriginal church affiliated with the Churches of Christ in SA. Leeroy Bilney is the current Chairperson for Tjilgamooda and is working closely with Naomi Wright to continue to grow the life giving ministry of the church.
Indigenous Connections, NSW
Indigenous Connections (IC) is an outreach in the Mt Druitt area of Western Sydney started by local Indigenous Christian couple David Haroa and Kelly Hickey. IC is about building a connection with the younger Aboriginal brothers of their community. Many of whom are struggling with the effects of generational marginalisation and poverty. It aims to teach them about their culture and also to impart that respect is a massive part of who they are. The program is teaching the boys about their culture through dance, story, art and helping them learn about who they are and where they come from.
Remy Sese, Ministry Support Coordinator- IMA West, has been very busy connecting among people with similar dreams and visions for Indigenous people in Western Australia “I enjoy listening to their stories to see where they walk and what they have persevered through - hearing the hearts of these great men and women of God it fills me with joy that the LORD has, is and will build His Church among the Indigenous People through IMA ministries”. Remy and his wife Theresa continue to support IMA’s work through engagement with Aboriginal communities in:
