Christmas Events for our Afghan Neighbours

Christmas Events for our Afghan Neighbours

Posted by Lucy

The Oak Church has been supporting a hotel full of Afghan families who have recently moved to the UK. Afghan refugees who have had to uproot and leave Afghanistan, their homes and communities as it was unsafe for their families.

As they wait to be housed, many are living in hotel rooms with multiple children, little resources and with no end in sight.

As a church, we want to help and do some small things to love these people and to show God’s love for them.

We have teamed up with Mosaic to deliver some projects over the next 6 weeks that we would love you to be involved in.

Men’s Shoe appeal

There are many men across Leeds who have limited footwear. Some only a pair of flip flops that they travelled in. Over the next few weeks we are collecting men’s footwear to donate to 4 different hotels to ensure these guys have what they need.

Please bring preloved shoes to church during November and we will get them out to the hotels.

Family Fun Day’s

The Oak Church are hosting some family fun days for the Afghan families on a couple of Saturdays in December. This will be a fantastic opportunity for them to make some memories and have some fun as a family.

We need a range of volunteers to make this happen so please do contact Will or Lucy Munton if you are interested in volunteering.

Christmas cards

We are aiming to get Christmas cards to each family this year. With a short message of hope inside.

This could be a lovely way of involving your children to make, decorate and write a message to a family.

You can pick up empty cards from the church building, in Treehouse. Or you can come to one of our Card Making sessions in Treehouse.


Love never gives up

Nearly 13 years ago, we were part of a group of people that helped plant The Oak Church into West Leeds from Mosaic Church, a city centre church in Leeds. We lead in various areas of church life and in the last 2 years have felt God stir us to plant a church. In the last 6 months we have sensed that call being specifically to East Leeds.

A couple of Sundays ago, the Church met for our usual Sunday evening Fuel gathering, where the theme was multiplication. It was great to pray and prophesy into where God might be leading us next...
