We’ve joined Oughtibridge Parish Church!
In September 2021, the Oughtibridge Chapel church family decided unanimously to become part of Oughtibridge Parish Church (OPC). This was the culmination of a six month process working through this together and we joined OPC and began to meet and operate as a single, enlarged church family in October 2021.
The ‘Oughtibridge Wesleyan Reform Chapel’ church congregation have been meeting in the village since 1851 with a rich heritage of worshipping our Lord and Saviour, faithfully reading and teaching the Bible and bearing witness, sharing the great news of the Christian faith, over many generations. Many have come to faith, committed their lives to knowing and serving our Lord Jesus, many have gone on to serve Him across the UK and around the world, and many have faithfully led and served within the church. We are so grateful for all that the Lord has done over so many years through our church and are excited about what the future holds in the coming chapters as the story of God working in Oughtibridge continues!
It was a big decision for us to join OPC and we believe we have made this move for all the right reasons. The two churches are both physically and theologically in very close proximity and we had already been working together in several ways for over two years, since September 2019. In short, we are much ‘better together’ and are able to combine all our people, resources, buildings, abilities and gifts to be a better church in our community, both today and in the longer term.
You can find out all about everything that’s happening at OPC here: www.opc.org.uk. Most of the activities and events that Oughtibridge Chapel provided have been integrated into the life of OPC and you can find out what’s going on here: www.opc.org.uk/calendar.
