About Our Church

The name ‘Oracle House Christian Church’ was born out of this simple encounter with the Lord. The book of 1 Peter 4:11 further says that, ‘if any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God (KJV).


We believe that Oracle House is a place where God will meet with any hungry, thirsty soul, a place where He will commune with His people, a place where people will experience the mercy, compassion and forgiveness of God, a place where we will learn how to enjoy the benefits of our better covenant, established upon better promises, a place where we will hear the voice of God.


Welcome to Oracle House Christian Church (OHCC).


Our Vision

At Oracle House Christian Church (OHCC) we want to see an ever-growing and self-sustaining community of believers in the Tendring area of North Essex in whom Christ is becoming increasingly formed (Galatians 4:19). Believers who are taking what they have learned from Christ and teaching it to others (2 Timothy 2:2) so that there is an unbroken ever-spreading chain; disciples of Christ, making disciples of Christ.


Our mission statement is summed up in the phrase, “Building God’s People, Using God’s Word”! Our mission is to nurture to maturity this community of believers described above in Jesus Christ through the ministration of the Word of God and through prayer.


We want to develop a church whose community outreaches will appeal to the indigenous population of Tendring and North Essex in general, a church that will meet their spiritual needs and to whatever extent possible, their physical and material needs also.


Our medium term strategic plan consists of:

1. Charity Registration – early 2015

2. Formal Inauguration and start of Sunday Morning Meetings – August 2015

3. Become a Member ACTS Churches as our Apostpic Covering – late 2015

4. Start a Café/ ’Christian pub’, Bookshop and Food Bank – 2016


What We Believe

Our Full History

On the 22nd of March 2012, while Pastor Uche was in Blackpool, UK fulfilling an assignment as a locum Emergency Doctor the Holy Spirit spoke to him saying, ‘you are an orator’, a (public speaker)! Starting with this word the Lord then began to lead him through a study on the words, ‘orator’ and ‘orate’.


These quickly led on to the directly related word, ‘oracle’! As he studied and was led through various scriptures he was very surprised to discover that the name used to refer to the Holy of Holies, the Most Holy Place, the Inner Sanctuary where the Ark of the Covenant was kept, in the King James Version of the bible, was the Oracle! He had never seen this despite many years of studying the bible in depth.


At this particular point in his life he had been praying more than ever before for the will of God to be done in his life and for God to move him more fully into his calling. He already knew with certainty that he was called to be a Pastor and Teacher of the Word of God and he had sensed for some months that it was time to move more fully into this.


When the Lord said to him ‘you are an orator’ and then led him to the Holy of Holies being known as the oracle, he sensed that God was confirming to him his life mission, to speak as an oracle, a mouthpiece for God, whatever God would command him to speak.


The name ‘Oracle House Christian Church’ was born out of this simple encounter with the Lord. The book of 1 Peter 4:11 further says that, ‘if any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God (KJV).

God told Moses, “And there (in the Oracle), I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel” (Exodus 25:22). And again, “And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him (Numbers 7:89).


We believe that Oracle House is a place where God will meet with any hungry, thirsty soul, a place where He will commune with His people, a place where people will experience the mercy, compassion and forgiveness of God, a place where we will learn how to enjoy the benefits of our better covenant, established upon better promises, a place where we will hear the voice of God.
