Worship at St Oswald's Anglican Church

Our 9.30 service draws on the Anglican service in a free way. Our music is reasonably contemporary and includes one or two traditional hymns. Preaching is central to the service (usually 15 - 20 minutes) and prayer is important. We often have open prayer. Holy Communion is the climax of the worship on most occasions. During school terms children go out to Junior Church early in the service and rejoin us at communion. We hope our worship is open to God, giving thanks and praise, warm, involving and encouraging.

Morning tea after the service is an important continuation of our time together.

At 8am there is a full Anglican service from the prayer book with a couple of hymns. This is a quiet and reflective service with a solid sermon.

On Wednesday there is a shorter communion service with a homily. The service lasts forty minutes. There is a cup of tea or coffee and time to chat after the service.

We hope to see you at one of our services.
