Junior Church

Messy Church

For children and adults together, meets about once a month usually on Saturdays from 16.00 to 17.30

To help us pray for one another and recognise one another’s needs we keep a Messy Church prayer diary. Every day of the month you can pray for a different member of the congregation, or one of the Church Groups. When you come to Messy Church please let us know how we can best support you and your family in prayer

There is a Service of Holy Communion every week though the days and times vary

Some weeks there are early morning and early evening Services

Silent Prayer

There are a small group of people who meet once a month in the afternoon at someone’s home to explore praying silently together. These are some of the comments of those taking part:

“It’s good not to use words all the time”

“I got distracted but I was still able to come back to the silence”

“Being still is hard work but it brings me to the still small voice of calm”

“It’s good to do this together”

Praying for the Community

At Oakwood Church, we regularly pray for the local community.  From October 2018 to June 2020, in addition, we are distributing cards to homes, businesses and community organisations street by street.  The card bears a greeting from the church and an invitation to get in touch with prayer requests. Look out  in church for the following: a map with street names, prayer calendars to take away, a sign-up sheet to join in distribution of cards, and of course, cards to distribute!  Please have a look at the map, join in praying for our neighbours and help to get the cards to as many people as possible

“O God you are the divine community of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we thank you for

our own community of

Roundhay / Oakwood

Keep it safe from all danger and evil, and help us to live in love and support for one another

Keep us alert to each other's needs, and equip us to offer our best in building a community that reflects the Community of Heaven.  Amen
