Come and find a Welcome at OAC
At Oakleigh Anglican Church our highest priority is to welcome people, whoever they are, wherever they have come from. We celebrate differences of race, age and life experience, because we believe that everyone should have a chance to know what God is really like, and everyone should have opportunity to experience the love, joy, peace and unity we have found in being a community who know Jesus and want to share his love with one another, and with others along the way.
We are a two centre (Holy Trinity and Emmanuel) parish within the Diocese of Melbourne, which is itself part of the Anglican Church of Australia, part of the world wide Anglican Communion. This means that OAC benefits from having a firm and agreed theological base that stretches back ultimately to the days of the early church trained, licensed and accountable ministers support structures and expertise beyond local parish resources.
We believe that all of life is ‘sacred’ that is, lived in the presence of God. We seek to share our lives: getting to know one another; spending time with one another; so that we can be truly united in our faith in Jesus Christ. After the services we meet to share in fellowship and a cup of tea or coffee. This is an opportunity for people to get to know one another better - whether you are new, just visiting, or have been a part of the parish for years - to in a relaxed and informal way.
We also run events for the community - both the church community and the wider community - to come together socially. Some examples are concerts, murder mystery nights, scavenger hunts, spit roast meals and any other appropriate context for getting to know one another, sharing our lives together, and for opportunities to speak of what God is doing or has done in our lives.
