130 years in Caterham
Oakhall Church has been involved in Caterham for 130 years, sharing the incredible news of Jesus and playing an active role in the local community. We are a group of people from a range of different backgrounds, who love Jesus and believe that knowing Him is truly life-changing!
We believe that gospel (the good news about Jesus) is the best news anyone could ever hear and we’re a church committed to being shaped by that news and sharing it with those around.

Our times together gathered as a church family will have times where the Bible is opened and explained. It is at the foundation of everything we do and believe as a church.
We're committed to loving, serving and investing in one another! We believe that coming together is an essential part of the Christian life in encouraging each other week by week.
At Oakhall Church, we seek to implement Scripture’s example of appointing a plural leadership: elders to lead and shepherd the church under Christ (1 Peter 5:1-5, 1 Timothy 4:14). There is mutual submission within the eldership and we seek to honour one another by humbly listening and seeking the Lord’s will as the Spirit leads us together. Scripture teaches that all God’s people are called to serve him and one another with the gifts they have been given to the glory of Christ. Every believer is a priest (1 Peter 2:5,9) in serving and leading one another into the worship of God.
As an eldership we have pastoral oversight of each ministry within the church, and many of us are each responsible for different aspects of the church ministries. As we pray for them, encourage them and humbly hold them accountable, we want to see these ministries flourishing and empowered as the Spirit leads them.
While we view all elders as equal, we are pleased to be able to financially support some individual elders. This support releases these individuals from the need to earn their income from outside, to dedicate more time to serve within the church.
