ABOUT ROPE FACTORY CHURCH
We begin at 10 am with a chance to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and an opportunity to catch up with people before the service properly starts about ten past. We usually finish around 11:45 am.
We like to vary our services from week to week but usually include singing, communion, prayer, and preaching.
Our children’s program runs during the second half of the church service during most weeks of school term. We aim to teach kids the bible in a way that highlights the big picture of who God is and shows that Jesus is the hero.

How we began
Rope Factory Church began as a house church in Neerim South about 10 years ago. It was born of a dream to start a church in the Baw Baw Shire that was conservative theologically while being missionally dynamic. In the early years, the church met at the non-traditional time of 4pm on a Sunday afternoon, but moved to mornings several years ago. For many years the church met at the old rope factory on Sutton Street (next to the golf club) and this is where the church's name came from. This name also alludes to the verse in Ecclesiastes 4:12
“And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” (ESV).
