Garden Party at Lambeth Palace

By the invitation of Archbishop Justin Welby, Veronica attended the event on Tuesday 23 July 2019 to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Ordination of Women to the Priesthood.

After the Garden Party, Veronica took a trip down Memory Lane – or to be more accurate, a boat trip on the Thames…

Epiphany Party 2019

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

Three Wise Travellers… and a Star

In France and Belgium it is customary to serve une galette de Rois on the feast of Epiphany. It contains a little charm, and the person whose slice contains the charm is allowed to wear the crown!

Wine and Nibbles for our 110th Anniversary

We were treated to a selection of wines from around Europe and learnt something about the saints associated with them. In this Tour we encountered St Martin (of Tours, naturally), Ste Geneviève and St Tryphon the pruner, among others.

Canapés were served and we sang verses of “For all the Saints…”

A most enjoyable evening!

St Oswald’s 110th Anniversary

St Oswald’s church was dedicated on 22 October 1908 by the then Bishop of Chester (Rt Revd Francis John Jayne). 

On Sunday 21 October 2018 Bishop Libby came to preside at our 10.30 Family Communion Service at which three of our congregation were confirmed.

More celebrations will take place on Monday 22 October 2018.

Matthew and Isabella – Wedding Blessing 1 September 2018

The Blessing Ceremony was performed by Veronica and was held at St Cross Church, Knutsford by kind permission of the Vicar and PCC. The church has some stained glass windows designed by Burne-Jones and made by Morris & Co – the Arts and Crafts company founded by William Morris. The West window is particularly fine.

The reception afterwards was at the Belle Epoque in Knutsford.

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
