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.

A new day, a new start, a new space

By Mark Eley, leader of Lifehouse Community Church

It was a big day in the life of Lifehouse Community Church in the afternoon of Sunday 25th April 2021. After not meeting in person for over a year during the pandemic we met together again for our first Sunday gathering. It felt a bit like going on holiday crossed with Christmas Day! For Katherine and I and our family there was a level of excitement and nervousness - constantly checking the clock to see if it was time to get in the car yet! There was a growing excitement and an expectation of what was to come.

We have updated our safeguarding policy and training materials, and we need to refresh your training in this important area, to ensure that we improve our care even further for the children entrusted to us. Because the safeguarding policy has changed significantly, we are re-training everyone involved in these areas, even if they were trained relatively recently.

Small town - growing town - Big God!

Anna works as a primary school teacher and Rich works as a project manager for a design agency. They have two children and are fun-loving people that love sharing life with others in Banbury.
