We are a broad all-age Church working to meet the needs of the community. We worship in a beautiful, ancient and much loved building and the wonderful Oxted Community Hall, OCH. We hold a variety of styles of worship through the week; from the quieter more traditional 8am said Sunday communion and mid week communion, to the main Parish Communion at 9.30am, plus lively, modern worship in our Sunday Café service with coffee and cake from 4pm, worship starting at 4.30pm.
We are excited to have The_Space in OCH for different groups and activities to take place during the week
Bible study groups
We meet in people's homes midweek to build community, read (and talk about) the Bible and pray together.
