Oikos is a Greek word which literally translates to English as ‘House’ but more accurately translates as ‘Home’: a place where you can be yourself, be fed, cared for and listened to.
Oikos-Brigg is a town centre shop with a difference! A unique not-for-profit charity established so that Christians of all denominations and none can work together to provide love and practical support for local families.
We strive to be a friendly, caring community where everyone is welcome and valued.
Put simply, our vision is to support our local community and as followers of Jesus to grow together, in faith, in hope and in love.
