We normally meet at Oasis Church Bath on Sundays in the following pattern:
- First Sunday of the month: 4:30pm Communion Sunday – an informal gathering where we share food together and take part in a simple act of communion.
- Second, Third (and Fourth) Sundays: 10:30 service with groups for under 18s.
- Last Sunday of the month: 10:30 all-age service.
Please see below for details of what’s happening from week to week…
We’re currently in the middle of a teaching series called ‘Being Human…’
Very often as Christians we’re subtly led to believe that being human is bad, that our ‘flesh’ is weak and we need to become less human and more divine. This can lead to a disconnect between our physical, emotional and spiritual selves. We want to look at this topic and explore lots of different aspects of what it means to be human, from self-awareness and handling our emotions to health, calling and even death. How can we fully flourish as human beings and make the best of the lives we live in the bodies we have? How can we move on from old issues and hurts and become the best versions of ourselves?
Sunday February 2nd: Communion Sunday. 4.30pm at Oasis Church Bath.
A chance to share some food together as an act of communion and engage in some light discussion as part of our ‘Being Human’ series. It’s near enough pancake day so we’ll be enjoying pancakes and toppings!
Sunday February 9th: Being Human: Self Awareness. 10.30am at Oasis Church Bath.
Being human has to start with knowing ourselves. What are some of the tools we can use to get to know ourselves better and why is self-awareness so important when it comes to faith and being in community? We’ll be joined by special guest speaker Dr Jo Whitehead, chaplain at Derby High School, former Assistant Director for the Institute for Children, Youth and Mission in Nottingham and the author of several books with self awareness as a core theme.
Sunday February 16th: Being Human: Emotional Maturity. 10.30am at Oasis Church Bath.
What does it mean to be emotionally mature? How do we ensure we can process and express what we feel in healthy, constructive, life-giving ways? Jo Dolby takes a look at the characteristics of emotional and spiritual maturity.
Sunday February 23rd: Being Human: Loneliness. 10.30am at Oasis Church Bath.
An all-age exploration of an epidemic of our age – loneliness. Why do we feel lonely and how can we find meaningful connection in an age of disconnection and independence? Lizzie Norman, Kids and Families Worker from Vineyard Bath helps us think about this important topic together.
Sunday March 1st: Communion Sunday. 4.30pm at Oasis Church Bath.
A chance to share some food together as an act of communion and engage in some light discussion as part of our ‘Being Human’ series.
