I was invited to OCC by a friend on my course in my first term. Being brought up in a pentecostal church meant I had high standards regarding the church's connection with the Holy Spirit as well as the quality of worship. I was surprised but also delighted to see that OCC met these standards. It was clear the hand of the Holy Spirit was strong here and I decided to stay - a decision I have never regretted!
I have since found that OCC is a church that is truly invested in discipleship. During my time here, I have found myself being continuously challenged and growing in many ways. The student workers really encourage and support you in discovering and developing your God-given talents: I now find myself improving my drumming, a skill that lay dormant in me for many years but is now being put to good use for God.
