We're really excited about our first joint meeting of Oxford Community Church and Lifehouse Community Church since Covid! God has been refreshing our relationship, through the Lifehouse Big Conversation, and has been speaking to several people about moving to be part of what he is doing in Bicester and Banbury.

At our 'Regional Celebration' on Sunday 11 July we will celebrate all that God is doing in our renewed relationship, pray together and commission new people to the leadership God is calling them to.

Steve Jones speaks, with Ruth O'Connell, Andy O'Connell and Mark Eley leading the meeting, and Emmanuel and Elizabeth Omuderiaye leading us in worship.

Broaden your diet!

By Andy O'Connell

As we looked at Isaiah 51-52 we saw the repeated encouragement (that's a gentle British way of saying "challenge"!) from God to his people to wake up, and really get what he wants to say and show them. A short paraphrase of the passage could read: "Listen, listen, listen! Awake, awake; awake, awake; awake, awake!" 

Bear, butterfly, diamond or seedling?

By Andy O'Connell

This week marks the beginning of Step 3 in the English roadmap out of lockdown. There are new freedoms and opportunities. As the elders were praying earlier in the week, we thought about some of the different ways that we will all be feeling and responding as we emerge into relative freedom. 

Maybe you feel like a bear emerging from hibernation with a sore head! For you, the lockdown has left you disorientated, maybe slightly grumpy and uncertain about what the world is like now. You don't want to be awakened, and as you emerge you wonder whether anything has changed!
