The video for today’s service has been fixed.
Thank you for your patience & understanding


As we can gather in larger numbers in our building, we remind you of a few details

  • You still need to register… the link is available each week on the home page.
  • We need to maintain distancing in our building.
  • We need to still wear a face-covering in our building.
  • At this point, we cannot serve refreshments, but you are welcome to bring your own coffee/tea/water, for the comfort of others, please do not remove your face-covering and drink until you are in your seat.

We will continue to offer our service on-line.

As we meet let’s remember that…

  • as followers of Jesus,
    we are called to be different and live differently in our world;
  • as followers of Jesus,
    we are called to live lives that are filled with and empowered by God’s Spirit;
  • as followers of Jesus,
    we are called to be signposts and movie trailers, pointing to what the Jesus life is like.
  • as followers of Jesus,
    we are called to live in Christ, free to love, free to be kingdom people.

As you prepare to watch our service video, we encourage you to take a few moments…

  • get your coffee or tea, settle in, be still…
  • take 2 or 3 deep breaths… in and out… breathe,
  • invite the Lord to make himself present with you as you watch – he is with you – it’s just that often we are not aware that he is,
  • Read Matthew 5:1-12 as we come to the service together.


Here is the service for Sunday, 8 August.
We are in a series on The Beatitudes – Matthew 5:1-12.
Today pastor Mike looks at: blessed are those who are merciful.

A reminder you can send your questions to We will be having some Q & A during this series.

OCCKids – Youth event




In this new way of being the church, we don’t practice giving by placing our offering in a basket as it is passed. OCCers are generous people. Thank you for your gifts.
