St Leonard's Church & Oakley Support Network

We are the Parish Church in Oakley and Wootton St Lawrence, Hampshire

As a church we love to give generously in a response to who God is, and all that He has done.  He is the giver of life, salvation, forgiveness, freedom and so much more.  Our giving flows not out of obligation or law, but from a place of heartfelt gratitude and a deep commitment to fulfilling God’s dream in the earth. 

In giving, we acknowledge that God is first place in our lives and that we want to partner with His mission.  Every gift given to Oakley with Wootton whether big or small, is helping the Church to reach the world locally, nationally and globally with the love of God.

God loved the world so much that He gave the most expensive gift of all, Jesus

We have three campaigns that need your support.  You can see more details of these campaigns in this site:

  • In August 2019, theives stole the lead from our church roof.  We welcome financial support and prayers as we cover the deficit that this has caused
  • We are re-imagining how St Leonard's Church could provide a better space for worship and community activities.  We need improved seating, heating and space to welcome.  We are also planning an extension that includes toilets, area for refreshments and a safe space for a creche during services
  • The Oakley Support Network 

The Oakley Support Network

The community organisations in Oakley have come together to respond to a wide variety of support needs resulting from the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19).

Oakley Parish Council, the Oakley Community Association, St Leonard's Church and Local Schools have built a Community Support Network of volunteers who will offer practical help to people who are self-isolating or struggling with other consequences of the pandemic.

There is a website www.oakley-village.com that gives more details about this project.

If you can support us with resources, we would love to receive donations for:

- Setting up the telephone and website infrastructure

- Supporting individuals and families in genuine hardship.

As a registered charity, St Leonard's Church is using its resources to manage the finances of the Oakley Support Network.

All donations will be received in their entirety by the campaigns.  Virgin Giving will not make a deduction for these causes.

Thank you.

Revd Ben Kautzer, Rector of St. Leonard's
