Olive Way

The Olive Way is a drop-in centre through which we offer hospitality to the wider Brunswick community.

Olive Way will have to close for the immediate future given the latest government restrictions on gatherings. We will aim to be back up and running ASAP, but within the mandated guidelines and exemptions. Please note, we will be endeavouring to run a restricted ‘non-contact’ service during our closure. Please bear with us we determine what services we can offer over this time.

Olive Arts

The Olive Arts Collective is a grass roots initiative and a collaborative group comprised of people who love to create visual art in all its forms.  Our key objectives are to provide a place of safety, acceptance and hospitality and we believe that this creates an environment for creativity to be nurtured and developed. Participation, creative exploration, empowerment, compassion, diversity and respect for each other underpins this space and the artworks are the creative expressions of these key values. Our aim is to encourage the emergence of this creativity.

During COVID we are meeting via Zoom on Wednesdays from 11am-noon.  Contact Ann Soo for details.

Student House Program

The Student House program provides a place to live for tertiary students moving from the country to the city. They are supported to live in community together and to actively participate in the life of a church community as they undertake their studies. We are meeting weekly on Sunday evenings via Zoom during COVID.  Find out more.
