Church@4, like the rest of OEC, is about making and growing disciples of Jesus. We are a gathering of people from the age of 0 to 80 and beyond. We have a crèche for 1 and 2 year olds and Kids Church that runs from age 3 to school year 6. It is a wonderful privilege and blessing to gather together weekly and hear God speak through his preached word, encourage one another, pray and sing. Whether you trust in Jesus yet or not we would love to get to know you and you to get to know us.
Our ‘weekend at home’ this year will be held on August 12-13. Craig Glassock, coaching director at Vinegrowers, will be our speaker.

2:1 For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you and for those at Laodicea and for all who have not seen me face to face, 2 that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God's mystery, which is Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4 I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments. 5 For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ.
