Biblical counselling here at Hope Oakville is about opening up the Word of God and pointing people to the glory of Jesus Christ. It’s not about clever counselling methods or strategies. It’s not about getting to “a better place,” being less anxious, having a better marriage or overcoming an addiction. These things are important, but they’re not the primary goal. It’s about pointing to the glory of God’s attributes and the glory of His gospel.
People are not transformed by other people, and a heart will never be transformed by a counsellor. But people, hearts, lives are transformed by the Spirit of God as we behold the glory of Jesus Christ!
The goal of Soul Care is to point people to the glory of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 3:18 “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.”
Provides a place where people who have experienced the loss of a loved one can be cared for.
Don’t get sidetracked by hopes that are miserable in comparison. A place where you are reminded that we need to put our gaze on God and what He is doing in us!

What Did You Expect? | Redeeming the Realities of Marriage
We are running a five-week class for newlyweds starting January 12. This course is open to all newlywed couples at our church whether you have been married a few weeks, months, or a few years. This class will be held on Sunday afternoons between 2-4pm and includes a video, discussion, prayer time and a chance to connect with other couples. This class is a great opportunity to reflect upon the realities of marriage and remind ourselves about God's purpose and vision for marriage.
The cost is $25 per couple.
There is no cost for this course if you've already been through our premarital program but you do need to register. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and to get your registration code if you haven't received it by email.
