Advent 2017 at St Oswald’s for young people

The season began by preparing the Christingles.


The RiCH* Christmas party involved some dressing up…

*RiCH = Refreshment in Church,  where Bollington’s Secondary School pupils (Years Seven to Nine) are able to drop in on their way home from school for a drink and some home made cake…


There were some special visitors at the Praise and Play* Christmas Party

*Praise and Play is for pre-school children and babies & their parents and/or carers


More dressing up for the Crib Service on Christmas Eve…

RIP Guy Wharton

Following the tragic death of Tytherington School science teacher Guy Wharton in a traffic accident on Tuesday, St Oswald’s will be open during the day for the next ten days (provisionally 8.45am to 6.45pm) as a place of sanctuary for all those who are mourning his loss within the community of Bollington and beyond.

A book of condolence will be available in the church from this afternoon.

The family have a close connection with both Bollington Cross School and our young people’s after-school group RiCH.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Guy’s family, friends and colleagues.
