Church

Christianity with its sleeves rolled up- that's what people say.

It's a lot to live up to but we try!

And along the way we hope to have fun, make friends, eat cake, share stories and make a life that's worth living.

What's On

please expand each section to see what's on

Coronavirus

As you would expect we've had to make some changes!

  • Messy Monkeys has been put on hold for now :(
  • Sunday Worship is happening on-line
  • The Drop-In is still open at the usual times but with changes to ensure distancing
  • Other groups are not able to meet in our hall for the moment, and have made their own arrangements

We are still very much active!  The best way of getting in touch is through bicester@salvationarmy.org.uk, or on 01869 369 160 - we will pick up messages at least three times per week.

Stay safe out there!

Who are we?

Well, we're a bunch of normal people with kids and jobs, with too much to do and too little time, with faults and failings, doubts and dreams.  But we believe the world should be a better place and that God wants that too.   

We're an unashamedly quirky movement.  A church and charity from Victorian times living and loving in a world that faces many of the same problems now as then.   

So we're busy doing the kind of stuff you'd expect us to do; helping the homeless, feeding the hungry, making friends with those who are lonely, lost or in some way struggling with life. 

But we know being is important too.  We know God and want to know him more.  We know Jesus and think he's awesome!  We want to follow his way of life and be like him.  So we also take time to just be.  To be loved and understood, to listen to God's voice and let him work in us.  

Drop-In

An informal drop-in for those who are homeless and those struggling with addiction.  

We provide a safe place, a friendly face, clothes, bedding and food.  But we want to give a hand up - not just a hand out!  So we also offer one-to-one support to help people make steps towards a life that is safer, healthier and happier.  

Specialist housing advice is offered via Connections Floating Support and specialist addiction counselling via our Salvation Army drug and alcohol worker and Turning Point. 

Open on Wednesdays from 12pm - 2pm​, and Fridays 10am - 2pm.

*** The Drop-In is still open at the usual times despite coronavirus, with extra phone support available too ***

Sunday Worship

  • 10am Chat over tea, coffee and toast. 

  • 10:30am - 12pm Family Worship

  • 11am Kids Alive! (with Bible stories, games and singing)

*** Closed due to coronavirus, but we are meeting online - please contact us for details ***

Messy Monkeys

Wednesday ​9:30am - 11am Messy Monkeys 

Make a mess at our place instead of yours!  Messy fun, crafts and play for under 5's.  

***Closed due to Coronavirus***

 

CAP Money Course

A team of people from various churches in Bicester, including ours, have been trained by the award-winning charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP).  They work together to deliver the CAP Money Course around Bicester.  This is a three week course and is free to access.  The aim is to help those who are struggling financially to gain control of their money and free them from the worry of debt.  Please email or phone if you would like to hear more about this.
