When we meet
There are 4 services at St Ebbe’s at 9.45am, 4.30pm, 6.30pm and during Oxford University term times 11.45am. Children’s clubs run during the 9.45am and 4.30pm services. Details of sermon titles and speakers for the coming months are available here. There is also a congregation called OAK (Oxford Asian Koinonia) which meets at St Columba's Church.
The broadest cross-section of our church family makes up the 9.45 congregation from the very young to the not-so-young via those somewhere in between!
A creche for under 2s, Woddlers for pre-schoolers (2-5s), Sunday Club for 5-10s, and Pathfinders for 11-14s run during this service making it popular with those who have children.
About once a term we have a Service for All Ages, when the children stay in and we learn together as a church family - young and old.
We’d love you to stay on after the service for coffee in the church centre.
For more information please contact the congregation leader Pete Wilkinson
Many students come to the 11.45 service, but all ages and stages are welcome!
It only takes place during the university terms and is a mix of vibrant praise, life-changing Bible teaching and loving community.
Each week we have an informal lunch together (only £3) after the service during which there is a chance to catch up with one another and occasionally to have some input from the front, including grilling the speaker about that morning’s sermon! Come along and see if you want to make the 11.45 your home.
The City Congregation is our newest congregation, and we aim to reach people who live in our city with the good news of Jesus.
The parish of St Ebbe's includes one of the most deprived council estates in Oxfordshire, two hostels which help get people off the streets and beat their addictions, and many people sleeping rough. The City Congregation has the primary aim of reaching such people in our city with the love and good news of Jesus.
For more information do get in touch with congregation leader, Matt Pope
The 6.30 congregation appeals to a wide range of people, including 20s and 30s, teenagers, students, older folk and internationals. All are warmly welcome to the service and invited to stay for tea and coffee afterwards. At least once a term we organise a variety of 'link up' events both to welcome newcomers and enable regulars to get to know each other better – details will be announced at the services.
We're really keen to welcome newcomers into our church family so if you're thinking of joining us at the 6.30 do feel free to get in touch with our congregation leader, Vaughan Roberts
All those from Asia whose first language is not English are warmly welcome to a service every Sunday at 3.30pm in St Columba's Church, Alfred Street, during university terms. For more information, please contact Han Hwang
