Celebrating 25 Years of Ministry in Oxley Vale!

All past and current members and supporters of Oxley Vale Anglican Community Church are invited to join us in celebrating 25 years of Christian ministry in the Oxley Vale area at two special events – a celebration dinner on Saturday 16 July and a combined thanksgiving church service on Sunday 17 July.

To mark the occasion, we are launching the ‘Building Ministry Fund,’ aimed at securing and expanding gospel ministry in the area into the future. Would you please consider contributing a one-off gift to this appeal? Donations can be made at both events or directly via ‘Oxley Vale Anglican Community Church’, BSB 032621 Acct: 309306.

Combined 9am Service and General Meeting

SUNDAY 13 DECEMBER

On Sunday 13th, the 8am and 10am church gatherings will combine for a 9am service, to be followed by a Special General Meeting to approve the church budget for January-June 2016.

The combined service will feature a special nativity presentation by the children in our 10am Sunday School. Our monthly Trading Table will also be in operation, with money raised supporting our annual holiday kid’s club.

Following the Special General Meeting, attendees are invited back to Tom and Caz Magill’s for a pot-luck lunch.

All Welcome to Hear Bishop Rick Lewers on March 1

Bishop of Armidale Rick Lewers will be speaking at a special one-off event on Sunday 1st March at Oxley Vale Public School. Hosted by Oxley Vale Anglican Community Church, the event will begin at 9am and the Bishop will be speaking on the topic: “LOVE can be highly overrated.” Bishop Rick is a dynamic, compelling and humorous speaker, highly-in-demand across the Diocese and the country.

All are welcome at this exciting event!

Prayer Day for Iraq

On Sunday 24th the churches across Tamworth are joining in prayer for the victims of persecution in Iraq.

Prayer for Iraq

 

Each church will be praying in their individual services and also taking a collection to support the victims of persecution from IS (formerly ISIS or ISIL). At OVACC we will be praying both in our 8am and 10:00 am services with a special collection going to the Bible Society.

You can see the Prime 7 news article  here

Church at Easter

Easter is a very special time in the year for Christian people. Each Easter we remember the death of Jesus but also his resurrection to life again. It is not only a solemn time of remembrance but also a joyous celebration!

Everyone is welcome to join us :

9:00AM on Good Friday

8:00AM or 10:00AM on Easter Sunday

Come hear about why Good Friday is so Good and about the even better news of Resurrection Sunday – plus there are hot cross buns and Easter eggs! All welcome.

Swim coach dunked by Vicar!

On March 10, about 75 people from OVACC witnessed a French national, living in Australia, publicly declare that he wanted to be part of that gathering. Nicholas, a local swimming instructor, was baptised (!) by Vicar Simon Carter, the culmination of a ten year journey for Nicholas and the beginning of an exciting journey of walking with God. Nicholas shared in church that since making the decision to follow Jesus, his priorities have changed and peace and joy abound in his life. 

Inquiries about baptism can be directed to the church office via the contact page.
