It is also the third of our Gift Days this Sunday. OCC has always desired to bless the whole city, the region, and the nations, but the church's regular income alone isn't enough for our high level of giving and growth. We hope that these Gift Days act as a nudge to get us all into the groove of generosity - everyone is invited to add an offering. You can find out more on our Gift Days 2023 page. And if you would like to give, you can do so online here by choosing 'Oxford Gift Days'.
This event will be livestreamed
