Welcome Oasis Hub Britwell!

Meet the newest Hub to join our family!


We launched a new community Hub in Britwell, Slough, on Friday 17th May at the Britwell Centre. The launch brought together Oasis Founder Reverend Steve Chalke MBE and Julie Siddiqi MBE, Oasis Hub Britwell Leader, along with a host of guest speakers from backgrounds in education, medicine, and social services.

Our Hubs work to build stronger communities where everyone is included, able to contribute, and reach their God-given potential. The work of our Hubs is varied and includes running food banks, pantries, youth clubs, toddler groups, gardening centres, debt advice, and farms.

In Britwell, our Hub aims to start volunteer groups, a walking group, toddler group, regular residents’ meetings, exercise classes (including women-only sessions), sport and outdoor activities, music, art events and lots more.

The Hub will be run by Oasis in collaboration with local residents, GPs, community groups, churches and other faith and cultural groups, and schools.

The launch event featured multiple speakers who will be working in partnership with the Hub including Steve Chalke MBE, Dr Nithya Nanda Britwell GP, and Anita Spires, Headteacher of Beechwood School.

Julie Siddiqi MBE, Oasis Hub Britwell Leader, said:

“Oasis is a national charity doing amazing and inspirational work all over the UK and we are so excited that they have chosen Britwell as their newest place to work, in partnership with all of our local groups and partners already here and helping to build stronger communities for a better future.”

Reverend Steve Chalke MBE, founder of Oasis, said:

“I am excited and proud that Oasis will be working in and with the local community of Britwell and that Julie Siddiqi, who has lived in the local community for so long, is joining our team.

At its heart Oasis Community Hub is dedicated both to the inclusion and flourishing of everyone in Britwell.”
