Hello and welcome
So glad you have found us.. was it by accident or design ?
It doesn’t really matter. Your interest and enquiry is very important to us .
Welcome to our upgraded church website. My name is Paul Howells and I am the senior minister at Oxbridge Community Church, Stockton . I have other key quality leaders who serve alongside me.
Oxbridge Community Church is part of the Apostolic Church UK, an international movement with representation in over 100 countries across the globe.
We have a rich and proud history in the town of Stockton , nearly 100 years heritage behind us, however , we remain excited for what the future has for us.
Our church is a friendly, hospitable community with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. It’s a safe place to explore your own personal journey of faith , and will enable you to become the person God intended you to be.
I often say ‘ A church is a perfect place for imperfect people’. It’s a place to find hope, meaning and purpose.
Our website will provide you with information about our church, however, websites can only tell you part of the story. So we’ d love to meet you in person soon and have the pleasure of getting to know you personally.
Take an overview of our website and hopefully it will lead to you planning a visit soon.
Our mission statement is clear and simple..
We are a church in the community.. with the community in its heart.
Thank you for taking time to connect with us today, and I trust you will have found the information you are looking for.
We meet every Sunday evening at 6 pm ( except the last Sunday night of the month) and every Wednesday for Bible Study at 7 pm.
Hope to see you soon
Our building is currently closed due to Government restrictions. But the Church is open
We can’t physically meet together, but we can try to show love and care for others.
The building will remain closed until further notice , but our hands and heart will continue to reach out and share the love of God with the community.
A word of encouragement.Hi everyoneWe recently entered the season of Spring , when we are expected to see new life, fresh things, people feeling better about themselves after the Winter season. Yet, what we are seeing unfold before our eyes is something we have never witnessed before ... the spread of a deadly and dreadful virus.Clearly there is much fear and panic in the hearts of people , as we live in uncertain times .However, be encouraged that whilst there is evident confusion and unease on the ground, our confidence and anchor is in an unchanging God.I read Psalm 46 again this morning and reminded myself that God IS our ever present helper in time of trouble. The Psalm ends with an exhortation to ‘ Be still and know that I am God’.I genuinely believe that God will bring good out of this Pandemic.The God you and I have trusted in the past is the One who’s faithful still.Allow His perfect peace to rule in your heart during this uncertain time.I woke up yesterday morning with the thought that if God my Father cares so attentively for the wild flowers in a field.. how much more will He attend to you and I and do the very best for us.Remember we live in God’s very own Intensive Care Unit and He has promised to shield us from all danger.In the Bible the phrase ‘ And it came to pass’ is often used.This awful situation will come to pass and I pray that we will reassemble as a church community and see new people join us because of the care and love the local church has demonstrated to its community during this difficult season.I pray that God will strengthen your heart and mind and each day our focus will be on a God in absolute control over all things.Stay in faithPaul
