We are hosting the Sunday Social as usual.
This week we are launching our new children’s program – Illuminate. Whether you are worshiping at home or at the Oakwood Centre, you can join in the fun. Find our new Illuminate Resources here.
We are all ready to welcome our children back to the Oakwood Centre this week and we are very excited to roll out our new Illuminate program – whether you are joining us at the Oakwood Centre or from home.
If your children would like to attend, they will need a ticket. Children’s tickets need to close at 4pm each Friday so that we can make sure everything is prepared for their arrival.
Illuminate groups will be available:
- Sunday 25 October
- Sunday 8th November
- Sunday 22nd November
Let’s Pray for our Kids
Don’t forget Dad’s, Grandad’s and Uncle’s that this week we would love you to join together and take time out to chat, support and pray.
If you are a guy who is parenting anyone under 18 then this Sunday at 8pm we want you to stop, log on to Zoom and join together.
Mum’s – Put Sunday 8th November in your diary for your turn to get together and pray.
Baptism is back!
Baptism is such an important moment for any new believer and we know that some of you have been desperate to make this step.
If you would like to register your interest to get baptised, please follow this link and somebody from our Baptism preparation team will be in touch with you to make arrangements.
Our kids work team have been doing more creative thinking about what we could offer to our young families to bring them some light on what is often celebrated as the darkest night of the year.
On Saturday 31st October we would love anyone with children to join us for our Illuminate Trail around the Oakwood Centre. We have lots of glow in the dark fun and crafts planned as we look at what the Bible says about light.

We now have half of you who have checked your privacy settings. Thank you to everybody who has taken the time to do so. We really appreciate it.
If you are married, please check that your spouse has also completed the process! Interestingly there are far more women who have set their settings than men…come on guys lets change that!
If you have not yet checked your preferences, please take a look at your inbox now and find the email entitled ‘Important from TVC Church’.
