Sunday Live Stream:
13th June 2021View past Sundays

Bookings have now closed to join us in person at our building for 13th June 2021.

If you'd like to join for next week please check here from Monday morning, or email for more information. We'd love to see you!

Hi. We hope you enjoy catching up!

Welcome and thank you for joining us. If this is your first time at The Oak, hello, we hope you enjoy our time together today.

Our plan today is to start by worshipping together (song words will be on-screen), followed by some church news and a short break.  After that, there'll be a short story of what God has done in Rebecca's life, a short talk and an opportunity to respond.

There are materials on this page for our 0-3's (The Nest), Preschool to Year 6 (Treehouse) and Year 7+ (Oak Youth) to help the whole family grow together.

Happy Sunday, see you at 10.30am!

You can also catch up to all our talks via our podcast here.

The NestGod’s Wonderful World Week 8
0-3's

This term in the Nest we are learning about the world around us to help us remember to be thankful for all the wonderful places God has created. This week we are looking at the Arctic!

Verse ‘I will give thanks to You, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonderful deeds.’ Psalm 9v1

Book Five Minute Bible Stories by Fiona Boon & Hayley Down (pages 71-91) (see link here). Tamsin, one of our fantastic Nest team, has recorded a video of this term’s book including a Makaton signed story and song (see link here).

Songs Who’s the king of the jungle - Creator God - If I were a butterfly - Praise the Lord - When I look (see the videos here) - Father God (to the tune of Old MacDonald, lyrics below, have a go at making up more verses with your child about other things you can find in the Arctic).

Father God made the world, E-I-E-I-O,

And in the Arctic He made it cold, E-I-E-I-O

With a brr brr here, and a brr brr there etc.

Activity To help your child learn about the ice in the Arctic create some frozen objects for them to explore. Either make ice cube pom poms by putting a pom pom (or any other small object which can get wet) in each section of an ice cube tray, add water and freeze. Or you could put some slightly bigger objects (toy animals work well for this) in a bowl or plastic box, add water and freeze. Once frozen pop the ice out of the tray or bowl and let your child try to ‘free’ the objects using a metal spoon and a small bowl of warm water.

As you play, talk to your child about the fact there is lots of ice in the Arctic and many things can get frozen in it (although probably not pom poms!) - we can thank God for the wonderful Arctic.

TreehouseLife of Jesus - Miracles: A Big Lunch
Preschool - Year 6

Welcome back to Treehouse!

Do you love the smell of warm fresh bread? Mmmmmm me too! 

This week we are learning about a Miracle Jesus performed which fed some very hungry people. 

It involved a boy being willing to offer the little he had! Doesn't Jesus take the small that we offer and turn it into something incredible?

Watch the video to learn more. 

Worship: 

When I look up 

Nothing is impossible 

God of Miracles 

House of Miracles

Memory Verse

Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people.

– Luke 9:16 (NIV)

Activities: 

1) Can you colour in the memory verse?

2) Can you make a fish out of a CD? Use different objects, like stickers, pens, tissue paper to decorate – this should remind you of our story today and the amazing miracle Jesus did.

3) Can you make your own basket of bread and fish using the materials in your pack?

Why not share what you've been up to on the Treehouse Parents Facebook Group?

Oak YouthWelcome back! I hope you had a great week sunbathing!
Year 7+

This is week six of the Alpha Course & this week in Oak Youth we will be looking at ‘Why & how do we read the bible’.

You might have heard the bible described in a variety of ways. Some call it God breathed or the very breath of God, God inspired or the word of God. Others call it the good book, the living word, the holy bible. Whatever we choose to call it, Christians believe that the bible is the actual word of God spoken through a variety of men including Jesus (God himself) & written down by scribes. In fact you can see some of the earliest copies of the original manuscripts (known as codex’s) both in a museum in New Jerusalem, Israel & in the British National Library in London - definitely worth a visit!

Here’s a question - If you were stuck on a desert Island, what three things would you bring? Would one be a bible? I’d love to know your favourite bible verse. Why not look it up and share it with us in our time together?

Looking forward to seeing you. This week we will be meeting at the same time, same place. See you on zoom at 7-8:30pm for one last week!

See you soon
Becks & the Oak Youth team

P.S. Next week we’ll be at the church building for Oak Youth at our usual time of 7pm so make sure you get signed up via church suite!
