“I thoroughly recommend the OAC team and courses to anyone wanting to learn to communicate and add tools for reaching people for Jesus, as well as helping in children’s work both inside and outside the church.”
– Roger Cole (minister, Henley-on-Thames Baptist Church)

“OAC have helped me to become confident at using the sketchboard. I recently went on their Streetwise course and now I’m increasingly using the sketchboard in open-air work, teaching at family services, and in school assemblies. I found the teaching team to be very encouraging and great fun to be with.”

“OAC take time helping you produce the best possible results, and I received many helpful suggestions which improved my speaking and sketchboard presentations... I appreciated their clear presentation of the Gospel and their step-by-step approach to learning a good technique on the sketchboard. They also have a treasure trove of tricks and good advice for working on the streets, with children and in family services.”
