The Open Church Network is not a website with an audience; it is a community with participants.  There are a number of ways to engage:

  • Debate, dialogue and discuss – Comments can be added to any piece of content posted to the site.  Join the conversation to challenge, encourage and enlighten others and to ask questions.  But please check out our discussion guidelines first.
  • Get involved in our campaigns – We will post campaigns across the site for people to join.  Help us create attitude and behaviour change within the Church and society.
  • Donate – The attitude and behaviour change work of the Open Church Network and the community transformation work of Oasis are only possible because of generous donations from supporters. Please give to our life changing work.
