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.
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 11 July.
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.
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.
At the end of July we say goodbye to John and Liz, as John's retirement takes them both off to pastures new. We will see John and Liz at various services and events during July, and expect some of those to have a reflective time, but Sunday 30 July will be the focus of our farewells. Please come to share time with them and wish them both well for the future.
- 10.30 am - John and Liz lead our morning service, including a celebration of holy Communion and - perhaps - the last time in a while that we may hear a sermon based around the prowess of Everton Football Club...
- Followed by a celebration lunch - please get a (free) ticket from one of the stewards so we know how many people to expect
- 6.00 pm a Circuit Service here at Four Oaks, and an opportunity to say thank you and good luck for the future to John and Liz, and to Deacon Linda Kinchenton who is moving on from our circuit, and also to our own Diane Forsythe who is retiring after distinguished service as a lay worker.
- Followed by tea and refreshments and a time to chat
If you can help with the catering and the arrangements on the day, please add your name to the lists on the information table in church.
