Are you looking to find out more about what life with Jesus can be?

New to Church?

Sometimes checking out a church can be a bit daunting. There’s a lot of unknowns, a lot of people and sometimes, a lot of jargon which you might not understand!

Here at The Olive Branch, we want you to feel comfortable and welcome, and try not to use the weird jargon Christians sometimes use! We’d love to connect with you at one of our services (10am on Sundays, 21-23 Palmerston Street, Ararat). We look forward to welcome you.

If you’re not quite ready for that jump, we are more than happy to meet you outside that time. Feel free to if you fancy an informal coffee (and cake!)

Choose Community.

We believe that everyone plays in important role in the growth and health of the Church. You can participate in the community in various ways, such as;
