Forward Together!

By Sanjay Mahtani

September is here, a new year has a begun! Perhaps more than usual this year, the autumn can be a time of particular hope, vision, and expectation. As people move to Oxford during Sept-Oct, it’s our habit to take a few weeks looking at our vision as a church. But this autumn, we’re spending four weeks looking at both vision and money. Why would we do that?!

Investing in our Future - Gift Days 2021

By Andy O'Connell (on behalf of the Elders)

In 21-22 we want to invest in development / growth / breakthrough, especially in our Future Focus goals. 

To do this we want to invest in releasing more time from some members of staff and leadership, in order that they can increase their focus. Ideally, we want to increase capacity (time) for these people.

Give us (all of us) today our daily bread!

By Steve Jones

In our regular habit of taking a financial offering when we meet as church, whoever is at the front prays for the financial well-being of all of us and the city. We say thank you for the offering and then pray for everything else – other than the church. Let’s also be praying for the church’s financial situation – that matters just as much!
