The program starts at 10:30 AM, and people are encouraged to come half an hour earlier for coffee, snacks, and conversation. If it’s your first time visiting, make sure to stop by our welcome table in the back of the room to say hello and learn more about Oasis. Parents can drop off their young ones with our team in the kids room, where they will meet new friends and enjoy fun activities together. 

What happens at a typical Houston Oasis Sunday Gathering?

Live Local Music
Houston Oasis is proud to support the local arts, and gatherings feature a new local musician each week, from a variety of musical backgrounds. The program starts with a welcome from the host, followed by two songs by the musical guest. Don’t worry, there are no hymns, and you don’t have to sing along.

Community Moment
Next, is a 10-minute talk from a member of the community. It can be about themselves, their journey to freethought, or something interesting they want to share. The community moment gives us a chance to hear from each other and get to know each other better. The community moment is followed by a 10-minute break for us to refill our coffee and make new friends.

Main Talk
After the break, we enjoy another song from the musician before the main talk. Each week Houston Oasis features thought-provoking talks on a variety of topics grounded in reason, delivered by engaging speakers with a background in their particular topic of discussion. Life is full of awe and wonder, and we want to experience it together at Oasis. Main talks are usually 20-25 minutes, followed by a brief Q&A.

Wrap-Up and Lunch
A few announcements about upcoming programs and one last song by our musician concludes the Sunday gathering. Guests who support our work are offered an opportunity to make a tax-deductible donation. Oasis welcomes everyone, and guests are never required to donate. After the program, it’s time for lunch. Having lunch together is how we can keep the conversation going and allows us to catch-up with our friends. For those who wish to join, we select a different nearby restaurant each week that can accommodate our group.
