Some features of our website, such as photo galleries rely on Java which is present on most devices

Adobe Flash Player

Many millions of commercial websites rely on the presence of Adobe Flash Player which enhances a web browser’s capabilities

We create www.oakwoodchurch.info using Serif WebPlus X8 which generates HTML5 that doesn’t rely on the presence of Adobe Flash Player, but some features of our website may

Adobe Flash Player is often present on Microsoft Windows PCs. If features of our website don’t appear to be displaying and Adobe Flash Player isn’t present on your PC you may find links to download and install the software you need on Our Digital World group page

Some Android smart-phones and tablets, and some Apple computers, support Adobe Flash Player

Unfortunately thanks to recent fierce competition between multinational IT suppliers who are seeking to obtain a competitive advantage by tying customers to their products, Adobe Flash Player is not available on Apple tablets and smart-phones. Similarly the latest releases of Google’s Android operating system do not support Adobe Flash Player

However on the Apple i-Tunes store, the Google Play store, and elsewhere, third party suppliers sell ‘Apps’ and Browsers that will display Flash on some of these devices. These may or may not provide an appropriate software solution for your device


Several of our pages use Document frames that display Livebooklets

This allows responsible people, both adults and supervised children, to update fast changing information - for instance our  Calendar , What’s On , Magazine , Churches Together , and some of our Young People’s pages - without needing to know anything at all about website development or maintenance. They have only to maintain the Livebooklet that appears in a frame on their page
