Steve Thomas Oxfordshire Community Churches

Holidays are a time to stand back from the hurly-burly of life, reflect, take stock. Time out, time apart. “Oh”, you may say, “I didn’t notice too much of that!” Well, that’s the idea, anyway. They may not be long enough, radical enough, substantial enough, but I hope that for you they’ve still had some value. My family and I have been to two Christian camps, Destinee in France, and Transform in UK, changed the pace of life at home a bit (I’ve had several evenings in consecutively), and have engaged in yet another practical project (the refurbishment of The King’s School). For any who couldn’t make Transform, all the talks are online, and would be a wonderful inspiration for you. A bit more relaxed time, or life lived at a slightly more moderate place, allows us to

draw breath, get refreshed spiritually and physically, look back and look forward. Look back at what we have accomplished this last year, and whether all the busyness was worth it; and look forward and say: “What are my real priorities for the next year?” One thing we have done this summer is de-clutter a bit. We’ve had a clear-out. We still had a whole load of videos which haven’t been played for several years in our clapped out old video. Dumped once and for all. Loft junk cleared. Cupboards streamlined. Lorraine is the radical one in our partnership; I’m the hoarder. But we’ve cleared out, cleaned up, made space. We feel leaner, readier for life. Life gets cluttered. Streamlining the clutter becomes vital.

As we start a new season, I have a burning priority, amidst lots of plans and projects. Living simply with Jesus. I want to live close to him. I want to pray. I want to hear him speak to me. I want the new wine of his spirit living in me, refreshing me, filling me, and living through me. Some new wineskins – decluttered structures in my own life to allow time for the fellowship with Jesus I want – this must help. If I want some new wine, I need new wineskins. The same goes for OCC as a whole: if we want new wine, we need new wineskins. New wineskins of risky mission in our communities to allow the spirit of Jesus to flow out into his world; new wineskins of teaching and fellowship together to allow the spirit of Jesus to be at work building us together as his family. Life in the Kingdom is pretty simple really, if we will allow ourselves to de-clutter!


LIGHT FORCE 2010 Andy Mackintosh from Basingstoke Community Church introduces Rami Fellemon of Jerusalem Evangelistic Outreach Reading Brother Andrew’s book Light Force in 2006 was one of the first steps I took on a journey that changed my life (a cliché, but it’s true.) I read it in the lead-up to my first trip to Israel and the Palestinian Territories. That trip revolutionised my thinking, not only about the situation in the Holy Land, but about God, the Bible, people and a lot more. The book opens with an account of a suicide bombing in Ben Yehuda street in Jerusalem on September 4, 1997. Within a few months of reading it I was sitting in a hotel about 300 yds from Ben Yehuda street, face to face with an Israeli who had lost his 14 year old daughter in that bombing. Suddenly the story became frighteningly real.

strong ties to the Land, but worn down by the pressures from both sides, many have left. The Christian population of Bethlehem, the cradle of the faith, once reckoned to be 75% or more is now estimated at 10-15%. For Palestinian Christians life is particularly tough. The Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza imposes severe restrictions on movement, work, access to medical provision, education, etc. and persecution by hard-line Muslims is a fact of life. But many stay because they are convinced, like Brother Andrew, that the light of the Gospel must be kept shining in the darkness and its message of reconciliation is the only hope in a hopeless conflict.

It was my first encounter with ordinary people who have to live with the harsh reality of violence and the fear of violence. On that trip I met Jews, Muslims and Christians who all have to cope daily with fear, discomfort, restriction and deprivation because of the 62 year old Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

One of these is Rami Fellemon. He was our tour guide in Bethlehem in the West Bank and I was impressed with the way he used his very local knowledge of the Bible’s background to bring the gospel stories alive. As I have got to know him more I continue to be impressed by his gentle spirit, his adventurous vision and his longing to reach people with the love of God.

One of the enduring questions in my mind is: “Why do they stay?” For the less well off of course there is no way out. But there are many bright, well-educated people from all ethnic backgrounds who could find wellpaid work and an easier life in other parts of the world. But they stay. For many Jews and Muslims the sacred Land and the battle to win it are everything. Christians too have

Rami is a Palestinian Arab Christian living in Jerusalem, worshipping at the Alliance Church in the Old City. He is a graduate of Bethlehem Bible College, one of very few Arabic evangelical Bible colleges in the world, and holds a Masters in Biblical History, Archaeology and Geography from Jerusalem University College. He is currently pursuing PhD studies at Bar Ilan Hebrew University.

LIGHT FORCE 2010

Together with his wife Christine, he leads Jerusalem Evangelistic Outreach, a team of people dedicated to bringing the Good News of Jesus to the Arab population of Israel and Palestine. In a strongly story-oriented culture their primary method of outreach is making DVDs and CDs of good Christian films and music in Arabic available to as many people as they can, along with other creative means of sharing the love of God. Rami will be speaking this week about his work and the challenges of living as a Christian amid the ongoing conflict. While many Christians take a deep interest in what is happening in Israel, believing we are witnessing the practical unfolding of God’s end-times plan, not so many take an interest in the Palestinian Church. Meanwhile Palestinian Christians, some of whom can trace their family roots back to the days of the early Church, continue to struggle against the odds to maintain a presence for the light of the gospel and the love of God for all. In his address at the European Leaders Conference in February Brother Andrew described the Palestinian Church as “suffering, lonely, forgotten, forsaken and rejected.” I myself have heard them say to us in the West, “Don’t forget us, come and see us, encourage us, support us – we need you!” Going and seeing and meeting the people has changed my attitudes and those of others I know. Go when you can. It is important to learn about the hard reality of life for Christians, Jews and Muslims in today’s Holy Land. But in the meantime, through Rami’s visit we have the opportunity to meet a member of the courageous “Light Force” that is sharing the love of Jesus in the darkness and I warmly commend him.

WOW! BICESTER Bicester Community Church ... now meeting on Sunday Mornings!!!

Wow! Bicester! Wow! What a town! Already the third largest in Oxfordshire and soon to have all sorts of new building developments. £70 million of investment! And… Bicester Community Church! Wow! What a great community to be part of. There is always so much happening, a wonderful family atmosphere and a real sense of God’s presence however and whenever we meet. But as for many of us, we want more!!! What? We have a great Over 50’s club, Toddler’s group and Preschool! This year we’ve seen great things through a town wide Mission week (Love Bicester), Healing on the Streets, doorknocking, a joint alpha course and with God breaking in on Sundays and mid-week. But there is so much more for us. We recognise a need too see more men, musicians and more mature Christians as part of our community.

Change! We also have discovered we have a HUGE fringe! Up to 100 people who are connected but are not saved, or not yet part of the core of the BCC community. So under God’s prophetic guiding we are currently re-jigging our small groups, and increasing meals together, going to more pub quizzes, bowling and seeking in lots of ways to deepen relationship with those who are on the edge, especially the men. Out of all of this we are praying for much salvation! We moved to a new venue in November and started meeting in the mornings! Once we got over the loss of our Sunday morning lie in (!), we’ve discovered a new sense of life as we’ve aimed for ‘Spirit-filled Sundays’. It is amazing the proportion of folk who serve in making this happen and we have seen a good number of new people begin to meet regularly with us.

KIDLINGTON 06


Cote goes Creative ... in several ways

Creative Kids Club - Growing in popularity with the village Primary school children… Started with a handful of children encouraged by Rebecca, Lea and Anna Macquet’s hard work amongst their classmates, the club has grown steadily over the months and these once a term Saturday afternoon events are firmly on the kids calendars.. Decorated plant post, a scavenger treasure hunt on the local playing field, decorated wellies and wellie wanging, and the world cup have been some of the creative activities. The modern slant on a well known bible story is often better that the sermon the following day!

Creative midweek group – It used to meet at Steve & Kathy’s now it meets in the Red Lion pub in Aston. During the run up to the election various party manifesto promises were compared to see which of the parties had anything to offer that came close to ‘Godly standards’ (Answers – ask Steve & Kathy or one of their group) Some of the other ‘issues’ discussed have included materialism, euthanasia & the effect of violent computer games and films.

Creative fund raising - For New Yatt Road – an evening at Buscot Park by Kind permission of Lord & Lady Faringdon, and arranged by Peter & Maggie Auger who along with Cote ladies provided cakes and cream teas – About a hundred people walked round the beautiful grounds and then came into the tea rooms for welcome rest and refreshment – all for a minimum contribution of £5 – a real bargain. With ticket sales and donations we raised £626 Creative during August as different couples took charge of the morning ‘family friendly’ meetings - as different in content as the people leading, but all good and a great opportunity for people to be involved who wouldn’t normally be!

Creative during the Autumn as we have J John with us (Via DVD!) on Sunday mornings. With his series on the Ten Commandments we will to try to engage with the community using these very familiar ‘rules’ presented in a way that people will never have seen them before! We are also trying to join with the Anglicans and the Methodists to run the series midweek in Bampton.

WE ARE TRUSTING AND PRAYING THAT ALL THIS CREATIVITY WILL CONTINUE TO PROVE FRUITFUL… The name Lifehouse Community Church came out of a couple of words that God was speaking to us as a church. One word was about houses in Kidlington being on fire for God, we have 9 houses so far and believe God is going to give more. The other word was that from these houses, Life would be brought to Kidlington. That we would see people get new life from Jesus Christ, hence Lifehouse Community Church. We’re now just over half way through 2010 and have been spending time looking at our foundations as a church. We have looked at Discipleship, Selflessness, Fatherhood,

Evangelism, Worship, Spirit filled people and Generosity. We are finding that this time has been a really key time of preparation for what God has got to come. We have also had new birth, two of them are aged 4 months, one aged 1 month, and one through alpha course. We still have a few more foundations to look at in the next half of 2010. Also are going to start a few different projects from Mum’s and tots to youth outreach to pensioners clubs to Sunday Night Live in Costa which starts in October. Please keep praying for us!

THE BLESSING OF BEING PART OF THE FAMILY The German word for vintage car is Oldtimer. Cedric & Audrey Hobbs certainly fit into that category, having been part of the OCC family since its beginnings and, as of this month, relocating to Berlin. They recall, “In 1980 we were living in Kidlington, where Cedric taught French and German at the local secondary school. That year we celebrated the birth of our fourth and youngest son as well as the birth of Kidlington Covenant Community, led by Geoff & Mary Norridge. Thus began precious and lasting relationships with them and others. In the case of Geoff & Mary, it was a friendship strengthened by the fact we had a total of 9 boys between us! The new perspectives we came to understand and value in those early days have been foundational in our lives: things like God’s unconditional love and grace towards us, character being more important than ministry, being works in progress, no spiritual-secular divide, and being joined to one another as active members of the body. Following a prophetic word in 1981, the “village” (Kidlington) became the “city” (Oxford) and OCC took shape. We were excited to see what God was doing and how many great relationships were developing. There was nowhere else we wanted to be. Cedric very much enjoyed the role he played in leading praise and worship in various

08

venues such as Summertown Leisure Centre, St Aloysius School, George Street cinema, as well as on the streets and in homes. Music practices were held in the living room, and the resident drum kit meant that all our sons became competent drummers. When the King’s School was launched in 1984, the whole family was involved and Audrey was one of many parent volunteers. She taught German there for the next 13 years. During that time, and as a family, we organised school exchange visits to and from a group of churches in southwest Germany. Cedric’s motivation in particular was always to get the Good News of Jesus out, be it locally, at school or in city centre outreaches, interchurch praise marches or church planting. OCC was by now a group of churches, and as their way of working together developed, God gave increasing revelation about the importance of Ephesians 4 ministries. It was in this context that in 1992 Cedric was asked to work for OCC as an evangelistic equipper. Along with others, he had responsibility for training and equipping some 40 young people in year teams between 1992 and 2002. Across the churches, his aim was to break down preconceived ideas about evangelism being only for specialists. Instead he tried to affirm and encourage the saints in all kinds of opportunities to reach out.


France, to help the church there, which had links with OCC. In the last few years in Oxfordshire, we have appreciated the warm friendship of brothers and sisters in Carterton, Swindon, Fairford and Cirencester, the latter three forming the Far West group, where we have sought to bring encouragement and provocation. Alpha is dear to our hearts, and Cedric has continued to organise regional Holy Spirit days. We have also led Jubilees, the monthly group which welcomes older people of all backgrounds. All in all, a fantastic variety of God-given experiences and opportunities!

Now we feel God has opened the door for us to go to Berlin. We would not be going, Many in the Salt & Light family of churches had God not spoken prophetically over the were impacted by Kiell Tofters’ word in 1999 last 20 years.

CEDRIC AND AUDREY HOBBS

“In 1996 we moved to Witney to be part of West Witney church, which was started a year later. At the same time, both of us were involved with the Kings Coach, an impressive, left-hand-drive, double-decker bus acquired by OCC in 1997 and extensively used in schools and various public places around the county until 2002. Many people, young and old, spent time on board enjoying a coffee and chat, hearing about Jesus and being prayed for. West Witney remains our home church, in which we have made some wonderful friends and sought to help with outreach. While one of Cedric’s favourite occupations is initiating others into the fun and the privilege of meeting people through surveys, Audrey has particularly enjoyed leading Little Treasures, a group for mums and toddlers.

CELEBRATE RECOVERY

REMOVING THE BINDWEED

When I was picking flowers from my garden, I had to peel off bindweed from the flower stems so that I didn’t rip the flowers. God said to me, “How much do you really want to get rid of the bindweed?” Some of us have bindweed (or sin) in our life that seems too big to deal with, so we leave it.

RECOVERING THE FRAGRANCE

As I walked down the road, I passed a wild rose but didn’t realise it was there until I smelt the fragrance. It was just an ordinary rose but the fragrance was great! A few days later, when I passed, there was just a vague hint of fragrance: the roses had died and looked awful. Immediately, I remembered the

RAISING FALLEN TREES

There are some fallen trees here. Fallen trees can be due to the bindweed of sin or disappointments or disqualifications in our own mind. The form of the fallen tree is still magnificent, but it's out of place and the life has gone. God would breathe on fallen

FINDING FREEDOM FROM LIFE’S HURTS, HABITS AND HANG-UPS


REMEMBER THE PROPHETIC WORDS GIVEN AT THE JULY CELEBRATION?

God says, “Now is the time to get rid of it.” Many of our hurts, habits and hang-ups have been with us for years, entangled around our heart and mind like bindweed. A quick prayer or a one-off pastoral session won’t necessarily shift them. Often, time is needed to recognise

them and to carefully deal with them—to work with the Lord to peel them away from us so we can flourish as he intends. One participant said, “I discovered that compulsive eating was a way of dealing with a lifetime’s worth of emotional baggage. I was still carrying hurts, guilt and shame

from my childhood — and had picked up more along the way. Before CR, I felt jealous, lonely, angry, full of shame, worthless, fearful and rejected. Now I am a new person — a completely new person.”

phrase, “The salt has lost its savour”. I thought, “No Lord, no!”, and he said, “That is right; it is ‘No!’ Because the gardener will come and prune. The roses will be grafted into the vine. The gardener will pour water on the vine and the sap will rise.” “Now is the time,” God says, “Call now upon him; he will

come and pour his water and the sap will rise.” A young man came on one of the CR courses bowed down, unable to make eye contact or hold a conversation beyond one word answers lonely, unemployed and very depressed. Since he knew noone else there, he was brave

and determined to recover his God-given fragrance. As he drew up his inventory (or took stock of his life), hope began to rise and a lightness began to return. By the end of the course, he had found friends, got a job, his head was lifted up and he was almost bouncing with life.

trees and say, “Roots will go down again; you will yet bear life; you will yet bear fruit; you will carry leaf; you will grow branches. Fallen trees can live again!” Some of the ‘fallen trees’ on our Celebrate Recovery courses have been Christians who have

‘lost their way’. By the end of the course, they testify to how their hope had been renewed as a result of doing CR. Others come to CR having realised that they need to get to know God because without him they can’t get rooted and live fruitful lives. By the end of

the course, many tell how they have found Jesus as Lord and Saviour. All of them now feel they can stand tall again with confidence that God loves them and has purpose and fruitfulness for them.

… And continuing the ‘gardening theme’, many people join CR, not feeling that they have major issues, but wanting to give an extended time for the Lord the Gardener to work with them and in them. Over the years, weeds grow that stifle growth and they need to be removed. After the nine months of the course, these folks feel freer and find there’s greater scope for good fruit to grow in their lives.

CELEBRATE RECOVERY

Remember ‘bindweed’, ‘lost fragrance’ and ‘fallen trees’? Celebrate Recovery is a tool that God uses to help people recover freedom and what has been lost.

EVENTS

“We spent a day with a Home Based Care ministry, which provides practical care for the chronically ill, as well as bringing the Good News of Jesus. In one village, we met a 63 year old lady who was severely diabetic and in much pain in her body and limbs; each day she would crawl out of her house and lie outside on a mat as she was unable to walk. Whilst some of the team whitewashed her house, we prayed for God to heal her. As we prayed, the pain gradually left her until, half an hour later, we encouraged her to try standing. She then walked for the first time for over three years. The HBC team said it was a miracle, which it was!”

NEW Y DEVEALTT ROAD O UPDAT E 10 | S PMEN T EPTEM BER 2

SEPTEMBER 2010 As you read these pages, the school year will have started and a new chapter in the life of The King’s School begun. The New Yatt Road development has gone from a few inspection holes in the field last September to a completed building 12 months later. It has been a wonderful sight watching the building develop from the laying of the foundations, through the walls rising out of the snow in February to the completion of the internal work over the summer. It is a wonderful facility and one which will serve The King’s School, North Witney Community Church, Stepping Stones Foundation Unit and the local community over many years. The last few weeks have been focussed on completion details, as well as refurbishment of the existing building ready for the arrival of the senior pupils from Wesley Walk. Many volunteers, including the church leaders, have been involved in lifting and shifting boxes, painting and decorating walls and other diy jobs. It has been a huge effort in a short time. Work on the site will continue in the background over the next few months. Inevitably the initial ‘teething troubles’ will need sorting out, and the landscaping developed through the autumn and spring, but the major development work is complete and now it is time to see the fulfilment of the vision of what God will do through us in this new facility.
