Christian church services, Bible study and worship in Oxford

Meetings

The services follow a simple pattern with prayers, songs and hymns, Bible readings and a talk or a discussion. There are no paid ministers; we organise the services and other activities ourselves. Most of our members are involved, and this leads to a variety of approaches and plenty of individual interest. All of us are encouraged to pray and read the Bible daily; to have a sound knowledge of its teachings and to apply them in our daily lives.

Meeting times

Once in a while the Sunday 10:00am service may have to be rescheduled or cancelled at short notice. You might therefore wish to phone first to check if you are thinking of making a special journey. Please call one of the following numbers:

Weekday meetings

Bible class

We hold a Bible class in our church hall on Wednesday evening. The format is informal. We usually centre on a particular Bible theme or investigate a topical issue from a Biblical perspective. All the meetings are opened and closed in prayer and have someone leading the activity for the evening. Visitors are welcome to attend and contribute to our Bible discussion meetings.

Young people's group

A separate midweek study group meets on Thursday evenings. This group caters for students and young adults. We aim for a friendly and informal atmosphere and discussion is based on Bible topics and relevant subjects that interest us. There is usually a different topic each week and we take it in turns to lead each evening.

Sunday school

Our Sunday school meets every week at 11:00am (the same time as our main weekly meeting) in the side rooms of the church. There are about eighteen young people from toddler to teenage who regularly attend. They will all start together with a thought, song and prayer and then usually split into three classes based on age, although there are sometimes special sessions which involve all age groups working on a project together.

The activities are coordinated by volunteer leaders. The lessons are based on stories from the Old and New Testaments. The teenagers have a flexible lesson plan with opportunity to discuss a wide range of issues.
