Southern Mallee Cooperative Parish was formed in February 1986 when the
Baptist and Uniting Churches in the small north west Victorian towns of
Hopetoun, Rainbow and Speed realized that their future lay in
cooperation and sharing of resources. In the spirit of Mallee pioneers
they forged a shared ministry. Initially a Baptist and Uniting Church
minister shared the ministry of the Parish. In more recent years the
Parish has had one minister. The current minister is a Baptist.
Church has a flexible service plan. Most Sundays there is a service at
Hopetoun and Rainbow at either 9am or 11am. When the Hopetoun service is
9am the Rainbow service will normally be 11am and vice versa.
Occasionally the whole parish meets for worship in one centre. Please
contact us for service times.
