We have small Belonging Groups across both Eckington & Dronfield, where meetings might be in person (where it is safe to do so) or by other means (Zoom, FaceTime, WhatsApp).

They provide a space to meet together, physically or virtually, do life together, share with each other and serve our communities. They are a place to love and be loved!

If you would like more information regarding the Belonging Groups, please use the button below and we will be in contact with you.

We want to be a church where people feel accepted, welcomed, and that they belong. We don’t have church membership but there are five areas which we feel are ways to belong to the Oaks…


Join us for any of our gatherings (check out the home page for the calendar). Belong by coming along.


Join one of our Belonging Groups. These run at various times during the week. Belong by joining.


Belong by serving. All of our gatherings, Children & Youth Groups, Belonging Groups & Connect Groups are run by volunteers and everyone is encouraged to get involved. Get in touch for more information on how you can serve.


Everything we do at the Oaks is only made possible by your generous donations. Your giving allows us to run various community projects and funds the day-to-day running of both buildings. Belong by giving.


God’s love is meant to be shared. Now you are part of the family, invite others to be part of it too! Belong by inviting. Invite a friend, neighbour, or family member to join you in attending our gatherings or your Belonging Group.

Need extra support, other than a Belonging Group?

Pastoral Network (PN)

We believe in the importance of sharing life together in Belonging Groups but understand that when individuals or their families are going through a particularly difficult time, they might need more support and investment than a Belonging Group can give. Our Pastoral Network provides support for those who are going through a longer and harder period in their life. Everyone in our Pastoral Network has a heart for people, is willing to stand by you, and listen to you. 

Small Ministry Teams (SMTs)

SMTs are in place to enable a more structured time of prayer for the individual.

Spiritual Mentoring

Spiritual Mentoring is a way of helping Christians move forward in their relationship with God and help them translate that into their lives. It’s a relationship between the mentor and the one asking for mentoring. It looks to see how God is already working and promotes the work of the Holy Spirit to enable growth as a Christian, spiritual strength, character development, and thinking about ways of serving God for those seeking to move forward.
