Our services are at 4:30pm every Sunday
Sundays are a vital part of the OakTree community. They are when the whole of the OakTree family come together to worship God and to learn more about him. We also see Sundays as a sort of ‘half-time’ re-group when we come together, to share how God is working in and through our lives and the world around us in the rest of the week. It’s a great opportunity to be encouraged, gain new vision, be strengthened in our faith and get excited about what God is up to.
Here’s what to expect on a typical Sunday:
We want our times together to be welcoming to those who may not be used to church. Our building is not a typical church building, and you won’t find any pews or altars. We sit around small tables on chairs like you might find in a cafe and we keep things informal and easy going. There’s no dress code or anything special you need to come along.
There is always plenty of free tea and coffee flowing at the beginning and end of the service and you are welcome to join us for a chat and some munchies after the service has finished.
We love to worship together in a comtemporary style. The band lead us with songs by artists like Matt Redman, Tim Hughes, Ben Cantelon, Hillsong and Jesus Culture as well as a few written in house! We sing songs in blocks together so that we can take the time and space to engage with God through our music and singing.
We love being open to the presence of the Spirit in worship and often let him guide us as we sing. The words are projected on screens so everyone can join in.
Children & Young People
We are a family church and we love having members of all ages as part of our community. We want everyone to have the opportunnity to know and follow Jesus and to discover the gifts and calling on their lives. The children and young people stay in the service at the beginning and then go to their own sessions which are tailored to their age range.
Prayer Ministry is available every Sunday during or after OakTree services. We love to stand with people and pray for and with them under the guidance and in the power of the Holy Spirit. We believe God heals today, emotionally and spiritually and we don’t want anyone to go home feeling oppressed or heavy laden. We have a specially trained team who can pray with you.
Sometimes in the service, some Oaks may give a word of knowledge, where God reveals to them something specific he wants to pray for, other times people request prayer themselves.
We share Holy Communion on the third Sunday of each month. This shared, sacramental meal has been practised by Jesus followers for over 2000 years. We eat bread and wine together to remember the sacrifice Jesus made of giving his body and blood on the cross so that we might have eternal life and relationship with God the Father.
There is both alcoholic and non-alcoholic wine available. We welcome anyone who loves and knows Jesus to take communion with us. If you are not sure, or are still working out what you believe, we would love you to come and receive a short prayer of blessing.
Where to find us!
We’re just on the high street next to the Kings Head Pub.
