Matt and Issy had their civil (legal) wedding in Issy’s home town of Koessen in the Austrian Tirol. Their marriage will be blessed in the UK later this year. We haven’t seen the “official” photos yet, but here is a selection of snaps
Each year we hold a party in church for Praise & Play Children and all our younger church members including the families of children recently baptised.
There was food and drink, various games, and a surprise visit from Three Wise Men who came bearing gifts for the children.
A good time was had by all!
Sunday afternoon at St Oswald’s. You didn’t need to go down to the woods. And it was no surprise that everybody enjoyed themselves!
On Sunday afternoon the church was transformed for a Posh Tea to celebrate the Vicar’s birthday. A good time was had by all!
St Oswald’s held its first Pet Service today. A varied selection of God’s creatures attended, including a number of pets. There were representatives of Mammals and Reptiles as well as some more symbolic creatures. Such as rocking horses for example.
There were a large number of dogs in the congregation, who vigorously joined in the applause at the speeches during the service. There were no cats. Perhaps this was just as well. A llama and a miniature horse made guest appearances.
Some of the humans explained their roles in looking after some of the other animals who share this planet.
Canon Veronica blessed all the creatures who had attended the service. Then there was coffee and cake. And dog biscuits.
YOU and YOUR PET are warmly welcome to join us for…
All Creatures Great & Small
– a special service at St Oswald’s to celebrate & bless our local working animals & family pets on Sunday 9th July at 3.00pm
No matter what sort of pet you have, bring it along!*
We hope you and your pet will enjoy our short service of songs and readings, and a chance to connect with other animal lovers of Bollington & Kerridge.
* (All we ask is that cats & other small animals are brought in
safe containers so that they can’t risk being lost – or eaten!)

We held a Posh Tea in St Oswald’s on Sunday afternoon to celebrate our 1936 babies. A glass of Prosecco, sandwiches, scones with cream and jam, and (of course) cake!
A good time was had by all.
A big Thank You to the organisers, Jean and Sheila!
…And another wonderful cake shared after the 10.30 service.
Thanks to our ace cake-maker Ann!
