God designed the church to be a place where people find family and community. Here at Oaklands we cherish the feeling of belonging that comes with being part of what the Bible calls "the body of Christ", that is the physical expression of Jesus on Earth today. We come from all walks of life, with all sorts of experiences and backgrounds, but our belief in God and what Jesus has done for us is what drives us to run all our groups, and to meet new people. People like you!
When Jesus was on the Earth, he was really interested in people and the lives they led. The Gospels are full of instances where Jesus connected with people, often outsiders, and brought them into his family. After he had gone back to Heaven, the ones he had left in charge of the church carried on this work, and this is what we are still doing today. We'd love to welcome you to any of our groups or activities!
