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).
