If you'd like to join us in person at our building this coming Sunday, we'd love you to book so we can manage our numbers.

Book for this Sunday >>>

Hi, we'll be starting at 10:30am.

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 worshiping together with one of our worship leaders (song words will be on-screen). After that, there'll be a time of prayer and news, followed by a short talk.

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!

The NestNoah’s Ark Week 3

This week we are going to be learning about how it rained and rained!

Verse ‘Noah did everything just as God commanded him.’ Genesis 6v22

Book Noah’s Ark by Lucy Cousins (see link here). If you don’t have a copy of this book (or any other Noah’s Ark story book) then have a look at this video of the story (see the video here).

Songs The animals went in two by two - Who built the ark - All through history - Deep, deep, deep - Praise the Lord (see the videos here).

Activity 1 If it is raining/has been raining recently you could use this time to go out and do some puddle splashing or water play. While your child is playing, remind them of the story and how once Noah built the ark it rained and rained! You could also talk to your child about how much rain we might get this week and even make a rain gauge to measure it. Cut the top off a large plastic bottle, dig it into the ground or put a large stone in the bottom to stop it blowing away. Each day have a look at your bottle and make a mark to show how much water was collected that day.

Activity 2 Play sink or float game. Collect some waterproof toys and household items and a bowl/bucket of water. Some ideas for items you could use are coins, stones, keys, plastic blocks, feathers, corks, sponges, crayons or bouncy balls. Talk about how it rained and rained, and Noah’s boat floated on the water for a very long time. Let everyone guess whether each item will sink or float before you put it in your water.

Activity 3 Make rainmakers using the following instructions (see link here). This may take a little bit of time but makes a great sound. Or for a simpler version you could add rice to any bottle (gluing on the lid to ensure the rice stays inside) and then decorate it. Remind your child as you create your rainmaker that God told Noah it was going to rain and it did.
