News and Events

We use this page to let everyone know about upcoming events in our church community.

Lets Get Together

Young people (ages 11-16) from our church and our sister church at Streetly began meet once a month on Sunday here at Four Oaks.  We Get Together usually on the first Sunday in the month from 6.00-7.30 pm.

You can just come along if you like, or contact the office and we'll put you in touch with Deacon Liz or one of the team who can give you more details, more encouragement, directions, or answer your questions.

Church with coffee and cake

Around once a month on a Sunday evening we have a cafe-style service, a service in a relaxed and conversational style, enlivened by music, cake, coffee and tea.   Keep an eye on the Worship page and come along.  If you've never tried casual, chatty church you might find it's just your cup of tea.  

Extend exercise

A time to join in some manageable exercise suitable for senior citizens, including a light lunch and some good company.  You might be surprised how much you benefit from doing just a little more than you thought you could!  Sessions are from 11.45 am to 2.00 pm once a month - the next is on 13 June.

Messy Church

Messy Church is aimed at families with children around age 5-10. It IS sometimes a bit messy - there are family crafts to try out - but there is also a time of worship and an afternoon tea together.  From a small beginning, seven years ago, Messy Church is now busy and runs monthly 3.00-5.00 pm, usually on the third Saturday of the month.  See the Messy Church page.  

The next Messy Church will be on Saturday 17 June. If you've been wondering what it's all about, why not come along and find out?  Just turn up at Messy Church, or if you'd like some encouragement or have some questions call the office.

Refugee Crisis 

A working group formed in our Circuit is looking at ways to help with this crisis. We have added to the special Refugee page so if you haven't looked at that lately click the link.  If you would like to be involved with this group, ask the office and we will put you in touch.  They meet regularly at different churches around the circuit.

There are lots of practical ways you can get involved with our efforts to help with this huge crisis.  Please tell us if you can help with anything - or if you've thought of something we might be able to do that isn't on the list on the refugee page yet.

Contact the office if you would like a booking form for the World Mission Conference on Refugees which is being held at the Hayes Conference centre at Swanwick in Derbyshire 2-4 June.

Thy Kingdom Come

Join the global wave of prayer between 25 May and 4 June (from Ascension to Pentecost). Commit yourself to pray that other people may come to know Jesus. You could pray alone, with family or a friend, or get together with people from church.  Click here for more information.

Easter Offering Dedication Service - 4 June

On 4 June at 6.00 pm at Streetly Methodist Church you can attend a special service for the dedication of the offering which will feature stories from nationals in mission appointments operating in Brazil, Ghana and Pakistan supported by World Mission Fund. Please come along to celebrate their work and learn from their experiences.

MHA Sunday - 11 June

On 11 June, which is also Trinity Sunday, our worship will particularly recognise and reflect on the good work of MHA.  The church has a tradition of supporting MHA, which is especially important at the moment as many of their local authority and other partners are suffering huge budget cuts.

Dates for your diary

Flower Guild outing to Trentham Gardens - 13 July

Contact the office if you'd like details of this outing or to get a ticket. Tickets are £20 and include return coach travel and entrance fee.

Alpha Course 

Have a look at the Alpha page - if you find yourself asking some of those questions, keep an eye out for our next course.  Alpha is friendly, relaxed and informal.  No questions are off limits.  It offers an opportunity for people who are curious about what Christians believe, and why, to put searching questions and hear honest answers.
