Vision & Values

VISION AND VALUES

Our Vision

 

Helping people connect with Jesus and each other

Jesus spent little time in religious buildings, and most of his time meeting people in the streets and in their homes, being good news for all. So as a church community committed to following Jesus, Oasis actively seeks opportunities to worship and serve in our local community.  

Our aim is to be good news and share the good news of Jesus with all those we meet through words and actions. We want to help those we meet to taste and see the goodness of God. 

 

We do this by offering authentic worship, relevant Bible teaching, opportunities for prayer and serving our neighbours around Biddulph and Stoke-on-Trent. We recognise that everyone is different, so we have a variety of community gatherings to help people of all ages and backgrounds connect with Jesus, and each other. 

We believe God is doing a new thing across Biddulph and Stoke-on-Trent as together we meet with Jesus and each other in community. 

 

Our Values 

We share the story of Jesus with authenticity. We’re relaxed and informal, a space where all are welcome to come as they are and explore faith together. We recognise that we’re all at different points in our faith journey and value the insight and ideas of every individual from youngest to oldest and all in between! Our worship and groups are creative and interactive with something for everyone – wherever you’re at.

Loving & Caring

We put compassion and God’s love at the heart of all we do. As a community, we’re committed to serving others with practical love and pastoral support. From baking and cooking, to providing a safe, confidential space to listen to concerns, pastoral care is a core part of life at Oasis. It’s part of our calling to love our neighbour as our selves.

We’re an outward-looking, growing church. We seek out opportunities to invite others to come and experience the refreshing love of Jesus for themselves. We do this through interactive, creative worship for all ages, youth and children’s activities, serving in the community and partnering with local projects that bless and benefit the communities of Biddulph & Stoke-on-Trent.

Together, we’re passionate about following Jesus and growing in faith. Through worship, prayer and small group Bible Study, we encourage each other on our faith journeys to go deeper in faith. We offer regular opportunities for extended worship, personal and group prayer and Bible study for all ages to taste and see the goodness of God.
