means to us and about our real life experiences of Him. We will regularly teach what the Bible says about knowing God personally through his son Jesus. And we will attempt to explain how you can also choose to have a living relationship and friendship with Christ and how accepting His love might impact on your life.
And do you know what the best news of all is?
This is available for anyone and everyone. It's available for people with messed up lives. People who have made bad mistakes and are living with regrets. It's available for people who have struggled to find love in their lives or who have battled against problems and difficulties for many years.
You don't need to reach a certain moral standard or be living what you might term 'a good life' to attend a church or discover God. We would be delighted to see you and be happy to help you in any way we can.
A Community of Ordinary People
Oxford Road Baptist Church is simply a group of ordinary people who are discovering God together and finding out more about what it means to follow Jesus Christ. It is a church where you can come in, be warmly welcomed and quickly feel as though you belong here.
We welcome people who’ve never been inside a church before just as much as we do those who’ve been attending this or another church for years. Our Sunday Services are at 10.45am and 6.15pm, but there are lots of activities going on at other times during the week. We’d love to see you and your family at any of these activities.
We know that coming to a Sunday service at a church for the first time can be a bit of a daunting experience. Like a first day at a new school everything is new and unfamiliar. Can I sit anywhere? What do I wear? Will I be able to understand anything of what is going on? And what will I do with the kids?
Let us assure you that you can come just as you are, sit anywhere and receive a warm welcome. Our worship and teaching is in a down to earth style but focused on God and his word to us found in the Bible.
Oxford Road is a great place to make strong and lasting friendships and to find valuable help and support especially
when life throws things at us which are difficult, unpleasant or confusing.
It's a place where we enjoy social events and many fun times together. We regular share meals, have barbecues, walks, concerts and other special events. But we are more than just another social club. More than simply a band of friends. More than a mutual support network. Whilst all these things are good, we also offer an environment which helps ordinary people take steps towards discovering God. Yes, you really can know the amazing God who created heaven and earth and all of us who inhabit this planet!
But providing this environment where we help people to discover God doesn't mean we force our beliefs on anyone. We don't bible bash those who join us into submission! Nor do we place any expectations on how quickly people find God or exclude them if they have difficulties in doing so. accepting His love might impact on your life.
We will however share with you what God
