The Olive Way is a place of welcome for all who want to use it. We first opened our doors in 2007 responding to a vision and desire to open our doors and offer hospitality beyond Sunday mornings.
Volunteer with us!

We are delighted to announce that we are moving towards a gradual reopening of our program during January for one day a week.  We will be gathering in the main Hall with entry from Sydney Rd.   Our doors will be open on Wednesday 20th January.  Please be prepared to follow COVID safe guidelines.

Throughout 2020 the Olive Way community of care continued to be offered in beautiful and creative ways.  Peter Blair, our Olive Way Pastor and regular volunteers have been maintaining contact with people by phone and email.

** Please note that all related programs described below remain closed and will recommence at a date to be advised.

Community Kitchen

A community kitchen provides lunch on Wednesdays at 12:30. Our cook Peter provides a delicious home style 2 course meal.

Olive Arts Collective

An art group operates on Wednesdays. The congregation supports local artists throughout the year providing a welcome space and resources to explore their artistic gifts. Arts Access offers a funded program at specified times during the term. The artists’ work is exhibited at various times during the year.

Music Lessons

Olive Way volunteers offer music lessons to anyone who is interested. It’s wonderful to see and hear people enjoying playing the piano for the first time or returning to the keyboard after many years.

Writing Workshop

A Writing Workshop on Tuesdays gives participants an opportunity to learn how to write and tell their own stories and to shape their imagination.


SROC is our very own Sydney Rd. Opera Company.  Olive Way participants work with professional actor Damian to share stories and draw on their life experiences to create performances. In 2016 we enjoyed ‘If the Shoe Fits’ and ‘Love and Food in Brunswick’.

Dance Classes

Dance classes are offered on Thursdays, 10:30 in the Main Hall.  Freedom through movement is offered by Tonia Beggs.  All ages and abilities welcome.  Bring clothes you can move in and join us to experience the joy of dance.  Contact Tonia, 0417 135 830 or Leanne, 0449 912 092.
