On Good Friday 30th of March, a ‘bring & share’ dinner is organized at Helen and Lemma’s place in Oppegård that starts at 14:00.
We look forward to meeting you there.
Our 2017-2018 annual report draft is now available. This forms the foundation of our annual meeting this coming Sunday, so you’re welcome to come with questions to join the discussion during the meeting.
Our new semester theme is “Deep & Wide.”
“As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice,… They are like someone building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock.”
If to dig deep into Christ is to get in on his words and ways, then to go deep is to go wide with Jesus. We struggle to do both. We often want our gospel to be a well. Deep, but enclosed and protected, so we can open it and lower our buckets into its depths whenever we feel thirsty. But it seems the Gospel is more like the ocean than like a well. If we dare to go out to the open sea, we will find there’s much deeper waters far away from the shores of our comfort. It’s scarier and riskier, for sure. But it’s deeper and richer. It brings us further into the fullness of Christ. Jesus had arms open wide to embrace, and walked far and wide to reach.
“I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” (Ephesians 3.17-18)
Join us as we explore our new semester theme. Find us here.

We are approaching Advent, which is a time for the church to be together, celebrate and meditate on the huge blessing of Christmas and praise God for his incarnation among us as the Messiah. It is news of salvation for all peoples.
OiC has been giving us the opportunity to taste and see this divine worldwide plan of redemption as we meet brothers and sisters from several countries, ages, cultures, languages and backgrounds, all together in one community.
We celebrate on Sunday December 3rd and have a full day program. You don’t want to miss it!
- 13:00: Advent workshops in which we make Christmas cards, decorations, cookies and candles.
- 15:00: Potluck dinner. Please bring and enjoy our food together.
- 16:30: Service with a Nativity play by the children.
- 17:45: Church coffee.
We are looking for volunteers to have fun running the workshops and logistics, please let Junior know if you can help.
