Adult program

In 2023, The Rev Vaughan Roberts, Rector of St Ebbe’s Church in Oxford, UK, will bring us talks from the book of Hebrews. We will have a chance to reflect on the supremacy of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to explore what it means to persevere in the life of faith – to Consider Christ and our glorious future with Him. We will also be prompted to consider our role in going to the nations and encouraging others to Consider Christ all around the world.

Vaughan reflects on Hebrews as follows:

“Hebrews may initially feel remote from 21st century gentile Christians, with its very Jewish feel and discussions of some obscure Old Testament texts, but its message could not be more contemporary. Like its first recipients, we too are a minority, going against the cultural tide and, as a result, facing the temptation to compromise or give up altogether. We urgently need this letter, with its extended appeal to persevere in the life of faith, grounded in glorious reminders of the supremacy of Christ. As we fix our eyes on Him, all He has done for us, and the glorious future He has secured for us, we will be spurred on to keep running the race.”

In addition to this deep engagement with God’s word, there will be many opportunities to hear from CMS missionaries and guest speakers about how God is building his kingdom around the world.

Youth and Children’s program

Our Youth and Children’s programs will be returning to an in-person format in 2023.

The Summer School Youth and Children’s Program is always a highlight of the year for kids of all ages. It’s a fantastic opportunity to get your children involved in learning about the role they can play in seeing a world that knows Jesus. This year, kids attending the program will be encouraged to Consider Christ and how his finished work on the cross shapes the way we live our lives and approach global mission.
