Autumn 2015 sees Oasis re-launching Community Groups.
We have been able to add to existing groups and bring a greater freedom for the groups to be different in how they express themselves, some of them focusing on particular topics and some having a broader approach. All our groups will continue to have their central focus on intimacy with God and unity with each other.
If you would like more information on any of the following groups, please contact Rachel in the office or the leader direct. Further information about the dates the groups are running can be found in our events calendar.
Wise Owl Lunch Club with Tanya van Heerden
Monday 12pm–2.15pm, meeting monthly
This group is for the over 70’s to enjoy fellowship and community with one another, we want to create an opportunity for them to network socially with each other over a free hot, home cooked meal and pudding! There will also be opportunity to spend some time with God (a reading/praying for each other) as well as looking to explore some of their own interests! We want to create an environment where we can love, encourage, respect and learn from one another!
Tuesday 10am-12noon, every four weeks
Jo’s group will be having a focus on healing looking at our theology and getting out into Chelmsford to minster to/heal people and move in spiritual gifts.
Tuesday 7:45pm, every four weeks
Dave wants his group to see members of Oasis Church able to work through the bible such that concealed mysteries are sought out, revelation gained, spiritual truths understood and applied and a solid theological foundation is laid that can withstand scrutiny and will always lead to Glory to God through the person of Christ Jesus. This can and should then serve the wider body of Christ.
Neil & Paula Lawrence “The community-community group”
Wednesday 7:45pm, weekly
Our heart is to build community, exploring what it means to live out Acts 2:44 in 21st Century Chelmsford. We will build community by Worshipping, Praying, Studying the word and socialising together. We want to develop, equip and enable people, so there will be loads of opportunities to do stuff. We also want to offer practical help and support—firstly within the group, then to our broader circles. We expect the group to replicate itself, so we will be looking for new leaders to emerge. We want to be as inclusive as possible, and have a particular heart for those who cannot always attend through work/family/personal circumstances. We also want people to feel free to go to more than one group, we probably will! Come and join us.
Maddy Davies, Pat Seeley
Tuesday 7:45pm, fortnightly
The aim of the group will be to release people in the prophetic gift by nurturing greater intimacy with Father God and following the leadings of Holy Spirit in order to become more like Jesus. We will be using a variety of resources to aid the teaching and study elements of the evening. We will also be doing some creative exercises that are fun and encouraging to practice prophesying over each other and the wider church.
Creative Prayer with Jackie Turner
This group will be open to anyone who wants to come along, and welcomes small children as part of that community. The emphasis will be on sharing our Christian journey and supporting each other in the highs and lows. We would hope to explore prayer and worship in creative ways. We meet on Thursday mornings twice a month , but the pattern is flexible to fit with other commitments so please contact Jackie for dates .
London Gathering with Neil Bullivant/Mark Golledge
Meeting monthly at Chelmsford station at 6.25am on the second Tuesday of each month to travel to London together and meet near Liverpool Street for about one hour.
The group brings together those who work in London. Our vision is for the group to be a gateway to the capital—seeing radical change through the impact we have in our workplace and in London. We meet together, encourage and support each other and enjoy dreaming about what we will be stepping into!
