A warm and welcoming church family, with a desire to be a Christian presence in the midst of what is a majority Muslim population and to serve our neighbours with love. A roughly equal mix of Baptist and Methodist members happily working together as the Olive Tree Church.
We have two sites:-
The Olive Tree (the Blenheim Crescent site) is used for our Sunday gatherings for worship, learning and fellowship and during the week as the base for our Community Worker’s activities and groups as well as Scout and Guide uniformed groups for all ages.
The Olive Branch (the St Margaret’s Avenue site) is used as a community resource, with part of the building being in use during the week as a preschool nursery and part of the building by Oasis DropIn. Two Ghanaian speaking churches are glad to have this building as their home for Sunday worship and other groups. We also use this building for special services if requested i.e. weddings, funerals etc – mainly of church members.
