Praise & Play: 9.30am till 11.00am on Tuesdays in term-time
for pre-school children and babies & their parents and/or carers - free event, no need to book! Just drop in!
RiCH = Refreshment in CHurch: 2.50pm to 5.00pm on Thursdays in term-time
when St Oswald's is open exclusively for young people and authorised adult volunteers.
Our aim is to provide an environment within the 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, with craft activities, games and a chat with their friends. Free of Charge (parental consent required - forms available on request)
Families are welcome at all services, but on the first and third Sundays of each month the 10.30 service is a less formal service in which children are encouraged to participate.
On the first Sunday there will normally be a simple worship service without Communion. We also have Storytime and a craft activity for the older children when we hear about God and his friends.
The service on the third Sunday will normally be a Communion Service.

As part of caring for the total well-being of a new baby, many parents want to celebrate and give thanks for their child's life by bringing them to church for a Christening, a very ancient tradition known as the sacrament of Holy Baptism.
At St Oswald's, Holy Baptism usually takes place during a Family Service but can be arranged at different times. Click here for more details.
