Recently the Olive Way was nominated for a Community Award from the City of Moreland. Shortly before the presentation night we were contacted to check whether a representative would be attending – but no firm indication that we might win an award. On Tuesday 1st October a number of us attended the ceremony at Coburg Town Hall and to our surprise we were announced as winners of the Collaborative Partnerships Award.

Congratulations to all people involved in the Olive Way – the participants, volunteers, our staff Pastor Peter Blair and Peter Murphy, and to the whole congregation for its prayer and financial support.

The text of the application together with a few photos is available here.
