Welcome

 
Hey there! It’s so nice to meet you!
 
You are probably wondering about the who, what, where and when’s of The Olive Branch, so let’s get them out the way first! Perhaps this will help…
 
Who are we?
We are a thriving and growing multigenerational Church, based in Ararat, Victoria, who seek to Grow Faith, Bring Hope and Show Love in our community. Both the Church and our Pastor are affiliated with The Churches of Christ in Victoria and Tasmania.
 
Where are you?
We have an awesome facility at 23 Palmerston Street, Ararat. For those more local, we are on the corner of the Pyrenees Highway and Queen Street. 
 
When are your main services?
We meet at 10:30am every Sunday at our facility at 23 Palmerston Street.
During December 2022, January 2023 and February 2023, we are trialling starting our services at 09:30am.
 
What are your services like?
Honestly? We’re pretty relaxed! Usually we’ll sing a few songs of worship to Jesus, take communion together and listen to a short talk which helps us grow in our faith journey. No-one is obliged to do anything, so you’re more than welcome to come and say hey without any pressure. 
 
Services usually run for between 60 and 75 minutes and are followed by an awesome morning tea, prepared by our very dedicated and wonderful volunteers.
