Arusha Community Church is an international, interdenominational, lay-led congregation. We are united through faith in Christ and worship in the English language.


A message from ACC Council and Council Chair

Cases of COVID-19 are on-going and increasing around the world. As an international community that welcomes visitors and which seeks to love and protect those around us, we are continuing to follow health protection guidelines for the safety of all.

We ask that you continue to:

  • Wash your hands before entering
  • Wear a mask at all times, especially when singing (please don’t take off your mask to sing)
  • Keep a degree of distance

We work and pray together as one community, sharing the love of Christ to all.
-Susan Simonson

Thank you for following these guidelines.

VISIT “RESOURCES” for a variety of at-home services and studies.

Worship Resources



We come from a variety of Christian traditions and celebrate this diversity each week. We welcome you wherever you are in your journey of faith—however you got here, you are welcome!

Services are at 10:30 am every Sunday, as well as other special days during the Church Year. An adult bible study is held before the service at 9:30 am. Sunday school for children ages 3-12 is offered during the service.

You are welcome to worship with us!

Arusha Community Church (ACC) functions because many people offer their time and gifts in volunteer roles. At ACC we encourage people to get involved and contribute in some way. If you want to know more about the church committees work, visit our new bulletin board. Or see the Duty Elder after the service for a copy of the Time and Ability Form (TAA) if you are interested in helping out at ACC. We welcome your participation!
