Oasis Church Waterloo

Oasis Church Waterloo is a community of ordinary people exploring life together. An inclusive church committed to bringing hope.

A bit more...

Oasis Church Waterloo is a vibrant community on an exciting journey to build and develop a church that is open 24/7 in the heart of London and which demonstrates Christian faith in action by serving a wide range of needs in the local community and far beyond. We are a diverse mix, fully inclusive of all. We’re made up of people from all walks of life and all age groups. People are our priority. Everyone is welcome.

To that end, we provide a constantly growing range of community services throughout the week, including community choirs, a Foodbank, Debt Advice Centre, a youth football team, and much more. If you'd like to get involved in this, we'd love to have you! There's more info below.

Oasis Church Waterloo is part of the Oasis Trust (to find out more, visit www.oasisuk.org) which was established in 1985 and has now developed into a group of Christian charities working to deliver education, training, youth work, health care, housing and churches in the UK and around the world.

What do we do for students?

We offer you the opportunity to be a genuine part of a local church. We are very keen to support you in the day to day joys and responsibilities of your life, work and studies. There are a number of ways you can be part of Oasis Church Waterloo:

In a city that can so easily breed loneliness and isolation we run a number of small groups to help grow deeper, more meaningful relationships and to provide a sense of support. They meet in the evening on various days every week. Through membership of a small group you will find lots of encouragement as well as having the opportunity to get to know a few people really well.

Through the autumn term we're running a new small group, meeting on Wednesday evenings at Hub Coffee House (1 Kennington Road, SE1 7QP), starting at 7.30pm. This is a chance for students to meet other students and young people from our community.

Serving the community is an essential part of Oasis Church Waterloo life. We can offer a wide range of short and long term opportunities to get involved in the life of the church here:

The Waterloo Foodbank works in partnership with frontline care professionals and South Bank Churches to identify individuals and families in need in the local area and provide them with emergency food.

We work in partnership with Guys & St. Thomas’ Hospital and currently have a small team working within A&E.

We also run the local primary school, Oasis Academy Johanna, and the local secondary school, Oasis Academy South Bank - both of which are always up for volunteers!

And of course you can always be part of our Sunday Services teams; everything from making teas and coffees, welcoming people, playing in the band, helping count the offering, using sound and visuals equipment, helping mini, kids and youth church groups. We’d love you to be part of our services.

Volunteers are the life-blood of the Oasis Church Waterloo community - without them, we simply couldn't do what we do. Volunteering at Oasis Church Waterloo is a chance to gain valuable work experience, learn new skills, meet new people and contribute to the life of the community. There are a wide variety of opportunities here at Oasis Church Waterloo, whether it's an hour on Sunday, an entire day during the week, an evening project with your small group or a project that you can do at home - there's always a way for you to get plugged in!

If you'd like to know more about how to get involved through volunteering, please contact welcome@oasiswaterloo.org to request more information.
