Bookings have now closed to join us in person at our building for 9th 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.

Happy Sunday, see you at 10.30am!

Special Offering - Bradford Church Plant

At The Oak Church we are really excited when God speaks about multiplication and leads us into new things and new places for His Kingdom. God has been speaking to Chris & Lisa Mason about planting a new church in the City of Bradford and as The Oak family it is with great joy that we will be sending them and their team on the 18th July. If you would like to commit to supporting the team during these early years by responding to the special offering please click here.

The NestGod’s Wonderful World Week 3
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 Desert!

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 Desert).

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

And in the Desert He made it hot, E-I-E-I-O

With a *wipe hand across forehead and say ‘phew’ like it’s hot* here, and a *wipe hand across forehead and say ‘phew’ like it’s hot* there etc.

Activity Using whatever resources you have available, create a ‘Desert’ for your child to explore. If you have some sand already, then add some Desert animals, rocks etc to explore the Desert with your child. If you don’t have any sand then there are a couple of ways to make your own sand below.

As you play remind your child that God made the Desert and all the sand - we can thank God for the wonderful Desert.

  • Make some moon sand using the ratio of ½ cup flour (any type) to 2 tbsp oil. You can also add food colouring if you’d like to create some fun colours.
  • Create cereal sand by blending/grinding up some cereal and adding some bicarbonate of soda to it in the ratio of ¼ cup cereal to 1 cup bicarb. Then add water in small quantities and mix continuously to avoid the bicarb dissolving. The mixture needs to be crumbly and still look quite dry, but when squeezed in your hand it should hold together.

TreehouseFruit of the Spirit - Faith
Preschool - Year 6

Welcome back to another week in Treehouse, where we are continuing our series - Fruit of the Spriit! 

This week we will be looking at Faith - check out the video to see Sam have a go at the blindofld challenge, to watch our story and see the activities. 

Thought for the session 

Have you ever stopped to think about how incredible it is that the sun rises each and every day? It’s something that I often take for granted. God has promised us that, “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.” [Genesis 8:22, ESV] What a magnificent promise and just a glimmer of His faithfulness to His children.

Worship

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

Be Exalted - Watoto Children's Choir - What a vibrant, exciting song declaring that we lift Jesus up! Check it out! 

Activities 

  1. Can you paint a rainbow to remind you of the story and the fact that god always keep his promises, you can use your finger or a cotton bud to make the pattern? (Find the template here
  2. Using a paper plates, lolly pop sticks, glue and any odd bits and bobs you have around the house, can you make Noah’s ark?
  3. Using the template in your packs, can you create this doorhanger for your bedroom? Colour in all the sections, cut and stick together. Have fun!
Why not share what you've been up to on the Treehouse Parents Facebook Group?

Oak YouthWhy did Jesus die?
Year 7+

This week in Oak Youth we will be asking the question, Why did Jesus die?

What a question?! Did He die of old age or sickness? Did He did of His own free will? Did He choose to die for someone else or did He do it for himself? What was His purpose in dying? What was the point? And why does it matter to you? Where did He die? Is it significant?

Take some time to think about Jesus’ death. It’s not the nicest thing to think about anyone dying & perhaps more difficult during a pandemic but I promise life on earth was changed for ever since His death and you’re going to want to understand why!

See you on Zoom, usual time & details. Looking forward to seeing you all!
