About Oak Hall Holidays

Welcome to our Oak Hall site - we'd love to tell you what we're all about...


God’s beautiful world awaiting exploration.

From the beaches of Spain to the mountains of Switzerland, from the deserts of North Africa to the springs in Northern Israel, God speaks of His majesty and power through the world He has made. A tapestry of diverse cultures, languages and landscapes: Oak Hall Holidays take people around our wonderful planet.


Meeting others: new connections and an adventure shared.

Great friendships develop in the action of Oak Hall Holidays. For many, it is a great encouragement to spend time with others who love the Lord Jesus. For some, it is a first insight into the reality of Christian fellowship. Often, these connections last long after a holiday has finished.


Clear and helpful Bible teaching. God speaks through His word.

The focal point of all of Oak Hall’s adventures is the Bible teaching presented each evening. Away from the humdrum of ‘normal’ life, with God’s Word open and being explained by a faithful Bible teacher, God draws those who know Him into a deeper relationship, and others to that place of responding to His call on their lives.


From small beginnings… a long and exciting history.

Originally conceived to meet the need for Bible teaching and Christian friendship in a camp-type context for those in their twenties and thirties, the first expedition left in a second-hand ambulance in the early 1960s. Since then, Oak Hall Expeditions have slowly grown to today, when around 10,000 people come away annually – now by air or in new air-conditioned, state-of-the-art coaches.

"The central aim and prayer remains: to see men and women encouraged in their walk with the Lord Jesus, and return to support their home churches and reach out to their neighbours."

A team dedicated to the vision of seeing the Lord Jesus glorified.

The team behind Oak Hall is a network of volunteers, some of whom pray towards and invest into just one of these key expeditions each year. There is also a small core full-time team based in the beautiful Oak Hall conference centre, set in the hills of Kent.


Partnering mission from Serbia to Thailand.

Through the growing number of worldwide connections, God has opened the door for Oak Hall to be involved in grass-roots mission work in a wide number of varied places. In the ‘80s, this included bringing aid and Bibles into then-communist Poland. In the ‘90s, the establishing of a Bible school in the post-war Balkans. More recent opportunities include work in Thailand, Peru, and the Middle East.
