Our unflinching resolve to serve humanity as taught by our Lord Jesus Christ resulted in partnering with other churches, charity or scheme geared towards alleviating hunger and helping those in need. Here we annually partner with Jesus House and various churches in London Borough of Barnet to provide Christmas Hampers for underprivileged in our community.

FOOD BANK

Provision for the less privilege in our community is a central part of the activities of the church. A thriving food bank is organised by the church where items are provided for those who are in need. This is done through the generosity of church members and donations from other churches and individuals. Regular donors include – ASDA, and Emmanuel Church Edgware . We are grateful to volunteers from the community who assist in the management of the project.

We believe that offenders need help while in prison and out of prison. We visit prisons to assist in providing foundation for transformation and re-integration to the community through the love and care taught and offered by Jesus Christ. The team also visit and periodically delivers gift items to inmates at Immigration Detention Centres via the IRC authorities.

Team Teach

Every church seeks to prepare their members to face the challenges of living in the society, and to fulfill their spiritual and social responsibilities. Adequate preparations are needed to effectively meet these challenges. OHCC has several training tools to address this challenge. An effective vehicle is the adult Sunday school or Sunday morning interactive Bible study where regular weekly study of the Bible takes place. These classes are tailored to help believers engage biblical provisions to meet practical life issues. Classes are usually divided into small groups to enhance discussions. Sunday school holds at 9.30am for 40 minutes.

There are discipleship training classes (believers classes) where young believers are given necessary biblical teachings and guidance on their new faith. Classes also prepare students for water baptism. The classes take place at the same time as the adult Sunday school.

There are also the workers’ preparatory classes where volunteer workers training take place. All disciples are encouraged to enroll in these classes to facilitate their growth process and encourage their involvement in the church. The classes hold at the same time as the Sunday school classes.

Teachers who facilitate these classes are well trained and attend regular personal development training programmes. Sunday school day holds annually in July to raise awareness and recruit more teachers.

We encourage members to continue with their discipleship and ministerial training through the RCCG School of Disciples and the Christ the Redeemer College (the RCCG Bible college). These training arms help with the continuous training needs of the members.
