As a church community of ordinary people from different walks of life, we want to be welcoming, caring and growing together as followers of Jesus.
We believe in God and want to make him known to other people. We believe that he loves and cares for everyone, and that his love can make a real impact in our lives and in the lives of other people.
You may be curious and wondering what the Christian faith is all about, or you could have been a believer for years. Either way, you’ll find plenty to encourage you and challenge you. We don’t claim to have all the answers, but our congregation includes many people who really have experienced life’s ups and downs and found God to have been walking with them through good times and bad so we’re not afraid of hard questions, either..
We want to help people come to know a living relationship with Jesus Christ, and to help them to live out their life in that relationship, in freedom and joy. We are convinced that God is able to work in and through us, no matter who we are, no matter what we’ve done. We believe our purpose is to do the following:
• To encourage and help people to believe in Jesus Christ and commit themselves to a life of apprenticeship in accordance with the Bible;
• To equip people to serve the Lord Jesus in all areas of their lives both inside and outside of the church;
• To enable change in our community as people engage outside the church as the Holy Spirit enables them.
This purpose extends to all age groups in our church and community – it is truly multi-generational.
We hope that you find the website informative. If there is anything else that we can help you with, please do not hesitate to get in touch, or come along to one of the events at Oakes where we will look forward to welcoming you.
