The Branch Christian Church officially started in 1999. We moved into our facilities in Kings Meadows in 2006.
All of us are just normal people who’ve discovered the good news about what God has done through Jesus.
The Branch is part of the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC) and we are also connected with Vision 100, a leadership training and church planting network within Tasmania. We also appreciate and support the work of groups like Geneva Push and The Gospel Coalition Australia.
We have range of people from the church who, as well as their day to day job, have leadership and outreach responsibilities in the church. But as well as that we also have two full-time pastors.
Karl Deenick is our Senior Pastor. He is our main Bible teacher. He preaches most Sundays and is also involved in training, discipling, leadership and overseeing the teaching program of the church. His role is to help us grow to be a community of people who know God, glorify God in everything we do, and who are on mission for God to make Jesus known.
Steve Nicholson is our Assistant Pastor. He’s responsible for membership and ministry training. His role is to help us grow to be a loving community where people belong and care for each other, and to help equip us to serve as Jesus served.
