What to Expect

We believe church is for everyone because Jesus loves us all, no matter our past or current failings. That’s why we are excited to see new people at Oasis, where we aim to make everyone feel welcome. If you’re not used to a church environment, don’t worry; it’s not as daunting as you may think…

WHAT IF I’VE NEVER BEEN TO CHURCH BEFORE?
Don’t stress! Loads of people find themselves in the same boat and many of our members were once in the same place. Remember, there’s a first time for everything! We are a friendly church, but we won’t invade your personal space either!

DO I NEED TO DRESS SMART?
Only if you like to! You can dress how you like - most of us wear jeans and tshirt (and a few tracksuits!)

DO I NEED MONEY?
Church is not an exclusive club, and like the gospel, everything we do is free for those who want it. All refreshments are free of charge and we do not take a collection. If you do feel compelled to give to a particular cause then please get in touch; otherwise
we rely on the generosity of our members.

WHAT IF I’M OF ANOTHER FAITH OR FROM A DIFFERENT CHURCH BACKGROUND?
Then you’re just as welcome; Jesus spent time with many people of different beliefs and backgrounds and we want to be the same. Our only request is that if you have a different view, then come and talk to us so we can discuss it helpfully without it being a disruption.

WILL I HAVE TO SING AND PRAY?
As part of our service we love to sing and pray because of what Jesus has done for us. But we don’t expect it from everyone as we are all in different stages of our journey with God. Therefore feel free to join in or be quiet; it’s up to you.

I NEED HELP GETTING TO CHURCH

BUT I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE BIBLE OR JESUS
You don’t need a degree to come to church! We are all learning on our way and are at different stages, so come with as much or as little knowledge and experience as you have - no one’s going to test you!
