Youth Groups

At Orchard Baptist Church, it is a priority that young people are welcomed, encouraged and nurtured as an important part of our church. We want them to be able to understand more about Jesus, the focal point of the Christian faith, and how this impacts their day to day lives. Here is our vision; a summary of our hope of what young people experience at OBC.


Sunday Youth

Aimed at school years 7 – 9 during our Sunday church service, it gives the opportunity for small group Bible study and discussion relevant to teenagers. The young people will occasionally take part in the main service as a group like the band and welcome team.

Pathway Boys Group

Aimed at boys in school years 7 - 11, Pathway aims to dig deeper into what it means to live as a Christian boy.
Bible study, discussion, games and prayer. The group is hosted at different homes on a rota basis.

Pathway Girls Group

Aimed at girls in school years 7 - 11, Pathway aims to dig deeper into what it means to live as a Christian girl.

Adult Groups

Women's Group

Women meet together frequently to engage in fun activities. It is a great opportunity to get to know one another and also encourage each person to know God better. A group where support is not only spoken, but active throughout the week!

Men's Breakfast Plus


Our aim is to provide a get-together where we can support and encourage one another, while also looking at what it means to be an active Christian in today’s society.

OBC Creative Arts is the arts ministry group of creative people from the churches across Bicester and surrounding villages. This art ministry seeks through God's' gifting to nurture creative people artistically and spiritually in community. Come and Celebrate the Lord's' Glory in artistic expression and worship.
