Christmas 2022 at Oasis Church
What does hope look like for you this Christmas?
Hope seems to have been in short supply in the past couple of years. From the separation we’ve known from one another, the tragedies filling our news feeds, the wars bringing devastation across the world, the anxiety sparked by the rising cost of living, and the pain, grief and suffering in our communities, what does hope even look like in a world like ours?
But what if hope isn’t out of reach? What if there’s a hope to be known even within the reality of everything going on around us? What if Christmas is the key to knowing a true, deep, and lasting hope that really does change everything?
You are warmly invited to come and explore HOPE together at Oasis Church this Christmas.
8pm on Saturday 17th December
At our Carol Service, you can expect plenty of carols led by the Oasis Band and Choir, spoken word and performance pieces, moments to make you think, and loads more. You’ll be able to get involved either in person at our building on South Street, or by joining online via the Oasis Online Platform or YouTube, starting at 8pm. Afterwards, there’ll be time to connect with others over mince pies and (non-alcoholic) mulled wine too.
10:30am on Sunday 18th December
An Oasis favourite festive meeting! Come dressed as a character from the nativity (the more obscure the better) for an all-age meeting as the Christmas story is retold together with lots of fun and games, and a big dash of spontaneity! This is an all age service led by our fantastic Oasis Kids Club team, and it won’t be live-streamed or recorded for safeguarding reasons. The fun gets underway from 10:15am ready for a 10:30am start!
Christmas Eve Communion Service
5pm on Saturday 24th December
On Christmas Eve, there’ll be a contemplative Communion Service together — a moment to pause ahead of the Christmas festivities, however they are looking for you this year, and take time to reflect, hear creative pieces, and worship together. The service will take place at our building on South Street, getting started at 5pm.
All-Age Christmas Day Service
10:30am on Sunday 25th December
Finally, it’s time for a short, all age meeting celebrating Christmas Day together! All are welcome for a 10:30am start at South Street to sing carols, celebrate together, and reflect on the wonder of what it means that Jesus has come to us.
