Finding a local church that will support you throughout your student life in Oxford is vitally important. At Headington Baptist Church (HBC) we aspire to be just that kind of church! Here are a few of the reasons why HBC might be the right church for you:
1. We have welcome lunches for new students. Please contact James, one of our ministers, if you would like to come along.
2. We link up new students with families who will offer care, support and (naturally!) the odd Sunday lunch.
3. Missing your younger brother or sister or little friends at your home church? We have about 70 kids and teenagers who need someone to look up to! We also have members of an older generation if you miss your granny!
4. We are a local church, based in the community of Headington. Our ministry is to this community and there are plenty of ways to get involved.
5. We have recently planted two new churches on local council estates (Barton & Northway). If you want to invest your passion, energy and gifts into some pioneering work in these places let us know! This might involve 1:1 mentoring of young people, streetwork or using your gifts in our Sunday services.
5. We are used to welcoming people from all over the world and offer a special welcome for students from overseas.
Both the ministers of the church have worked in full-time student ministry (24 years between them!) and so understand the needs of students well.Share this:
