We support our local and international mission through Faith Promise. The month of June is Faith Promise month where we prayerfully consider our giving to support the following:

  • Wycliffe Bible Translating in the NT
  • Operation Mobilisation - sending good news to Afghanistan
  • YouthCare - local Chaplaincy

Samaritans Purse - Operation Christmas Child

Throughout the year we hold events to fund raise for the postage of the OCC Shoe-boxes. Events such as Gala Day held in July and Market Day in September involve the whole church community and we look forward to Shoebox Sunday when we send them off to countries such as Cambodia and Thailand.

Groups

The early church met regularly at gatherings in homes and community spaces and the church today thrives with people regularly attending a small group during the week.

Home Groups are run through out the week at various homes and more details on these can be obtained by contacting us.

Men's Stuff is our men's group which regularly hold events and get together's throughout the year - such as hiking, kayaking, pizza night and volleyball.

EMPYA was formed by the young adults (18-35 year old's) so that they could Eat, Meet, Pray with other Young Adults. They meet at different homes to come together and enjoy a meal and share a devotion.
