Future Focus

Friends first

By Andy O'Connell

When I was a student, the importance of the daily 'quiet time' was drilled into me by my fellow Evangelical students. As a charismatic student I always struggled with the idea of 'quiet', preferring to be vocal with the Lord, and found the quiet time model I was given slightly stultifying!

Do less, pray more

By Andy O'Connell

Coming into the sabbatical, we already had a hunch that God was speaking not about fresh outward and other-focused activity, but about how He wanted us to relate to Him: our God-ward activity!

The Dream

By OCC Leadership Team

As a church, since January 2018 we have been seeking God in a process we are now calling 'Future Focus, in order to clarify, refine and focus our energies, to ensure that we are doing what - and only what - God is calling us to. As part of that process we have written down 'The Dream' to articulate the sort of church God is calling us to be. This is a long term vision of the future, and a document that will guide our decision-making, praying and leadership.
