When we meet
There are 4 services at St Ebbe’s at 9.45am, 4.30pm, 7pm and during Oxford University term times 11.45am. Children’s clubs run during the 9.45am and 4.30pm services. There is also a congregation for our Parish and OAK (Oxford Asian Koinonia) meet 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 grill the speaker about that morning’s sermon!
The 4:30 is our newest congregation, and we welcome anyone of any age or stage of life.
Come for a cup of tea before the service at 4:15. children's groups (creche for under 2s, Woddlers for pre-schoolers, Sunday Club for 5-10s, Pathfinders for 11-14s) start as the service begins, and the children then join us towards the end of the service.
Afterwards, as well as tea and coffee, there is a meal available through in the church centre.
For more information do get in touch with congregation leader, Pete Wilkinson
The 7 o’clock congregation though particularly popular with 20s and 30s, also appeals to a wide range of people including teenagers, some students, older folk, internationals, etc.
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 7pm do feel free to get in touch with congregation leader, Suresh Menon, he’d love to meet you.
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.
