Bible Expedition

Contact Name: 
Chris and Rachel Marshall

The Bible Expedition is a Bible Study group which meets each week for blocks of 5-6 weeks at a time. We have these blocks between the major church festivals, stopping during Lent, summer and Advent.

The purpose of the sessions is to learn more of God’s Word together by spending time in the Bible. We often move around both the Old and New Testaments – taking in any and every book that helps us understand the topic we are studying – like a real expedition – stopping off to look at something whenever we feel like it! It’s a good way to improve our navigation around the Bible too!

A church for adults and children to enjoy together. It's primarily for people who don't belong to another form of Church already. It's all-age. It's fun. Its aim is to introduce Jesus, to give an opportunity to encounter Him and to grow closer to Him. It usually includes some creative time to explore the Biblical theme through getting messy; a celebration time which might involve story, prayer, song, games and similar; and a meal together. Its values are those of hospitality, creativity and celebration.

To increase our prayer life as a church, we have a regular Church Prayer Hour, held at the home of Peter and Stella Knott. This gives us the opportunity to pray for the Mission and Ministry of the Church on Oakwood.

It is held on either the first or second Tuesday of each month (see the Oracle Magazine Diary).

Why not come along and join us in praying for the church and the community we serve?
