We are setting up confirmation preparation groups for both adults and young people ahead of the confirmation service in October. If you know anyone who might be interested in being confirmed, please speak to a member of the clergy.




PLACE OF WELCOME every Tuesday. Coffee, company and chat in the Parish Centre, 10.30 to 12.30. Everyone welcome.



PATHWAYS - is a one year course for people wanting to explore their faith and discipleship and reflecting on their gifts and calling. It begins in September and will meet on Wednesday evenings during school term time, further information can be found on the table by the south porch or from Harvey.

We are hoping to have a Prayer Breakfast at St Oswalds Parish Centre on
Saturday 25th September at 8 am.  It will be a time of prayer and reflection as usual, followed by a slightly 'modified' breakfast.   Some of you may feel a little hesitant but please be assured that all precautions will be taken - social distancing etc.    If you intend to come, please wrap up well as there will be no heating in the Parish Centre - we will look forward to our hot cup of tea or coffee !
Please invite anyone else you think may be interested.
