Dear Friend

I hope you find the web site helpful. It aims to give you some information about the church but it does not cover every detail. For that reason, if you want to know more about us, we would encourage you to email or call.

If you are local to the church and want to know more about Christianity, we will happily send you some literature - books or videos. If you would prefer to talk to someone then please email or call. Knowing what God wants for your life is the most important question of all. Being in a right relationship with God is possible, because Jesus made it so. You may not understand that right now, but that is the fantastic message of the gospel. Why not examine it for yourself! Too many people today quickly dismiss the Bible's message even though they have never read it or studied it seriously. Take the 'gospel' test and read if for yourself.

My own life was turned around many years ago when I read through Matthew's gospel, and there encountered the risen Jesus Christ in a totally unexpected, and life-changing way. I did not at first understand it, but I knew it was true - the gospel works - because God is in the life-changing business. Millions of Christians from all walks of life will tell you the same. Don't judge it until you've read it!

Maybe you haven't been to church for some time and you would really like to come again, but feel a bit nervous coming on your own amongst people you don't know. Actually, all of us, have known that feeling at one time or another.

If you wanted someone to come and get you that can be arranged. If you wanted someone to meet you at the door and sit with you, we can arrange that too. Oasis likes to think of itself as a real family, and making people really welcome is very important to us. There are quite a few people in the church who first made those tentative steps and then soon discovered just what an easy and friendly place it was.

Remember, there is no time like the present for learning more about Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches very clearly that he alone is the way to God. He said so himself on many occasions.

In John Chapter 14 verse 6, Jesus says, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me."

When we  know the true identity of Jesus of Nazareth - that he is both Son of God and the Saviour of the world - then the rest of our questions about life and its meaning, begin to make sense. To make such claims for himself, Jesus was, as one writer once said, either mad, bad or simply telling the truth.

Why not invest some time in really finding out what Jesus said about himself. It could be the most important investment you ever made!

Also, if you want to know more about the church than you have been able to find on the web site, please call us or send us an email.
