This week we will join the inaugural service with the Hasle congregation at 11:00.
They have not met in their building for TWO years and have invited us to join them for this momentous service. We are so excited to do so! It’s a beautiful embodiment of the body and union of Christ. If you are able, we’d love you to come!
We will join their 11:00 service and Carol lead OiC Kids for the children during the sermon.
There will not be a 16:00 service.
Much of the service will be in Norwegian, with some elements such as prayers and songs in English. We will, however, have a copy of the liturgy in English so we can follow along.
There are a few other dates to note for this semester. We will switch service times with the Hasle congregation two other days and have our Advent Celebration the first Sunday of December:
October 21, 11:00 Inaugural service with Hasle kirke
November 8, 11:00 OiC Service
December 6, 15:00 Advent Celebration
December 20, 11:00 OiC Service
All other services will be held at our usual time, Sundays at 16:00 at Hasle kirke.
Thank you for being with us this semester as we transition to Hasle. We are grateful and thankful for being here in this new space with you.
May the Grace and Peace of our Lord be with you.

This Sunday December 9th, there will be a morning service at 11h and no afternoon service. In this Sunday morning service, there will be baptism.
After the Sunday service, we will have a potluck lunch together to celebrate the baptism. You are welcome to bring a simple lunch dish or a cake to share. The location is the same as usual – Bakkehaugen church.
The ‘Church Coffee’ of OiC is beloved by all of us. It is the wonderful time directly after the church service where you feel most community-like, can socialize with old and new friends or can get to know new people.
There are some who are responsible for the Church Coffee regularly, but it would be nice if more people would participate, just now and then. We encourage people to bring food from their own culture such that we can celebrate the internationality of the church 🙂
On the sign up form, people can sign up for bringing food, helping with the practical part, or both!
For the food part you can bring whatever you want, fruit, cake, biscuits, soup, spring rolls. The practical part is making coffee and tea and washing the dishes -with a machine- afterwards. It takes about 30 minutes to prepare before church and 30 minutes to clean up after. There is a clear guide in the church coffee box and even if you have questions, there are always others to help out.
The online sign up form for Church Coffee is hosted by Sign Up Genius:
On Sunday 11th, the church service takes place at Sjøglimt, where the congregation is on Summer Camp . There will not be a service at Bakkehaugen kirke this day! Next Sunday, the church service will be Bakkehaugen kirke as usual.
