Bookings have now closed to join us in person at our building for 2nd May 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). 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.

This week Adam will be introducing a new home-grown song, 'Jesus has the Victory', during our time of worship.  To learn the song in advance, click here.

Happy Sunday, see you at 10.30am!

The NestGod’s Wonderful World Week 2
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 Countryside!

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 Countryside).

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

And in the Countryside He made a river, E-I-E-I-O

With a splish splash here, and a splish splash there etc.

Activity 1 Create some handprint paintings of animals you’d find in the Countryside. If you search online for ‘animal handprint paintings’ followed by an animal name there are lots of examples of each. The cow, chicken and sheep are good ones to try. You can also make a sheep using fingerprints for the wool.

Instead of painting you could create the handprints by drawing around your child’s hand and colouring it in to look like animals you’d find in the Countryside.

Activity 2 For something a little different you can use toy farm animals to make footprints and whole animal prints in some playdough. You could also make some prints beforehand and see if they can match them to the animal.

As your child paints/plays remind them that God made the Countryside and the animals that live in it - we can thank God for the wonderful Countryside.

TreehouseFruit of the Spirit - Goodness
Preschool - Year 6

Welcome back to Treehouse as we continue our series the Fruit of the Spirit. 

Today we will be learning about Goodness. 

For this sesion it would be helpful if you had a banana and some citrus fruits for tasting and paint staming.  

Check out the video to learn more about Goodness and to watch the game. 

Thought for the session

When God made us, he made us to be like Him. And since Jesus is God, we’re made to be like Jesus too. So, if Jesus is good (and He is!), we’re designed to be good as well!

This week ask God to help you make Good choices, he is always ready to help!

Worship: 

Fruit of the Spirit song - It wouldn't be the same without this catch song to get us moving. 

You are Good 

Activities: 

1) Goodness on the inside.

Take a banana and pass it round, then decorate your banana, drawing on it to change its appearance. Open the banana once finished and talk about how what we see on the outside doesn't show us what is on the inside. Only God sees our hearts & only the Holy Spirit working inside of us can create goodness in our heart. 

2) Taste and See stamp painting 

  • Instructions:
  1. Get out the Taste & See card from your pack
  2. Cut the citrus fruit of your choice in half.
  3. Squeeze paint onto a plate.
  4. Dip the fruit in the paint and then stamp it on the paper.
  5.  Let dry completely before hanging up.

3) Can you make a delicious smoothie?

  • Supplies: 1 Cup Frozen Blueberries, 1/2 cup Vanilla (or plain) Greek Yogurt, 1 Cup of Your Favorite Milk, Optional: Honey & Frozen Banana (to taste), Blender 

Or any ingredients you fancy 

  • Instructions:
  1. Add all of the ingredients to the blender.
  2. Blend together for a delicious blueberry smoothie!
