Daniel Warren
Pastor
 
Dan was originally called to be Pastor of the Olive Branch in November 19, but as a UK citizen and recent COVID induced travel restrictions, his arrival was delayed until June 21. With a 1st class honours degree in Applied Theology and a heart for people and mission, Dan has a spiritually wise head on very young shoulders (he is only 28!)  he is currently studying towards full ordination with CCVT as a Church of Christ Pastor.
 
 
Anita Wong
Treasurer
Anita is a Chartered Accountant who having put her career on the backburner for a while has dedicated her life to serving Christ.  Her enthusiasm for Youth ministries is infectious and this added to her giving her all to ensuring that pastoral matters are taken care of makes her an invaluable and well loved “Brancher”.
 
 
Geoff Penna
Newsletter Co-ordinator
 
Geoff is a wonderful blessing to all of us at The Olive Branch. Having owned a renowned print and copy business for many decades, Geoff brings a level of expertise, creativity and local contacts which ensures the monthly newsletters are informative and interesting.  His boundless energy and enthusiasm brings out the best in all who know him.
 
 
Ruth-Cheryl Lennie
Music Co-ordindator
Most people know her as RC, which to be honest is easier to say than Ruth-Cheryl!  RC is  a classically trained pianist who has played in numerous worship groups and big bands.  She is extremely modest about her abilities, but she possesses a wonderful ear and touch for music, making her simply the best at bringing tunefulness to our praise. 
 
 
Lorraine Dickson
Prayer Deacon
Lorraine is just a gentle gem, full of the Holy Spirit, with a wonderful heart for people, and organisational skills honed during decades of service in the Lord’s Church.  These qualities are certainly required as she embarks upon co-ordinating prayerful responses to the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of those within The Olive Branch and our local community.
 
 
Kate Gason
Church Secretary
You couldn’t tell from her unassuming selfie, but, Kate is a busy lady being CEO of a busy home whilst being the “go to” administrative professional for a number of local businesses.  Kate is a keen Gardener and avid reader  and someone who has a passion and gifting to plan and organise events in which people feel enjoyment encouragement and edification without any fuss being made.
