Local Outreach

We want other people in Bicester to meet with Jesus and experience His love for themselves.


Overseas Mission

Overseas mission is an integral part of life at Orchard Baptist Church. Presently there are six causes we support as a church. These include three ministries in Asia which are too sensitive to detail here. 
The mission causes we support are:

Local Outreach

We want other people in Bicester to meet with Jesus and experience His love for themselves. There are lots of ways people can get involved in outreach! Baking cakes, delivering newsletters, debt counseling, serving drinks, praying, singing carols, face-painting… everyone can do something!


Overseas Mission

Overseas mission is an integral part of life at Orchard Baptist Church. Presently there are a number of causes we support as a church. These include three ministries in Asia which are too sensitive to detail here. 
The mission causes we support are:

East Bicester 

We have a particular focus on East Bicester, the Keble Road area around where we meet on a Sunday. We work with the local Salvation Army to put on an annual Sunday Funday, and we deliver a Christmas and Easter card to one thousand homes. We sing carols one evening every year!

Graven Hill

On behalf of Churches in Bicester we have taken responsibility for outreach on the new self-build development at Graven Hill. During 2018 we expect to see a new Community Minister – a member of the staff team at OBC – to be living on Graven Hill, building relationships, encouraging community and liaising with developers, councillors, council staff – and above all, new residents!

Grapevine

Then there’s Grapevine, our Wednesday morning group for pre-schoolers and carers, that meets in the Methodist Church in Sheep Street, 9.45am – 11am (Facebook - @GrapevineToddlersOBC)

CIB Refugee Support Group

Churches in Bicester (CiB) Refugee Support Group is all inclusive involving all faiths and none. Contact the group representative at your church to find out more about what we are doing to help with the crisis. We would also like to hear from you if you have a skill you can share or can offer any form of practical help in settling refugees located in Bicester. Alternatively, contact us through the general information email cibrefugee@gmail.com So there’s lots of ways people get involved in outreach! Baking cakes, delivering cards, debt counselling, serving drinks, praying, singing carols, face-painting… everyone can do something!
