Following government legislation all public worship other than outdoor services for Remembrance Sunday is suspended for a lockdown of one month. As a result we will not holding services at St Oswald’s Church or St Lawrence from Sunday 8th November. St Oswald’s church, however, will continue to remain open for silent individual private prayer on Wednesdays from 10am to 12noon. If you do visit the church we ask that you observe social distancing measures and recommended hygiene practices as well as providing details for track and trace.
Fr Murray or Ann will be writing a short reflection each week which be emailed to our contact list as well as being made available on this website. If you would like to be added to the contact list please let Ann know. Here is the reflection for this week: Sunday next before Advent. You can find links to more resources, such as the Church of England’s Prayer for the Nation initiative on this page of our website.
Christmas Present Appeal As usual we are supporting the Salvation Army Christmas Present Appeal by collecting gifts of new toys and food for Christmas Hampers to be distributed by the Salvation Army in Northwich. There will be a box in church for donations when the church is open on Wednesday 25th November, Wednesday 2nd December and Sunday 6th December. Gifts should be unwrapped or in open gift bags.
