    Welcome

    A very warm welcome to you and thank you for visiting our web site. We are a Church of England parish in the Anglican Diocese of Southwark and the Deanery of Croydon North. As a Christian and Anglican community, our congregation is made up of different cultures, young and not so young, all of whom share a love of the community and the desire to practice their faith.

    Please read the letter from Alison Brunt, the vicar, about reopening church for worship on Sunday 5th July - click the image above or this text.

     

    Please note: The church will be closed for individual private prayer until after the weekend.

    Even though our church is closed for public worship, the support we give to others and the costs of the church remains the same.
    If you are able to, please click on the 'Give a Little' picture above to donate to St Oswald's as you might have done in the service.
    Thank you all for the many ways in which you already give. We are grateful.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    Church now available for private prayer

    We are greatly saddened that, following guidance from the government and the Church of England, we have to suspend our regular acts of public worship.

    However we are delighted to offer an hour each day when the church will be open to enable those who wish to, to say prayers in the building. The opening times can be found in the calendar (below).

    We offer this on the understanding that those who come are well enough to do so safely and will observe the national expectations of social distancing and hygiene practice.

    While it is a great joy that our building can be opened, this does not devalue the place of individual prayer in our homes.

    A regular group offers daily morning prayer through the ‘Blue Jeans’ video conferencing app  and we celebrate the Eucharist, live via ‘Blue Jeans’, from the vicarage at 10am on Sunday mornings. All are welcome to join us for these acts of prayer and worship. For details of how to join, please contact the vicar or curate.

    If you would like us to pray specifically for yourself or a member of your family please contact us through the website or directly to rev.alison@outlook.com

    Please take care of yourselves, your family and your neighbours and pray regularly for all those whose lives have become more complicated, stressful or isolated by this virus.

    Keep us, good Lord,
    under the shadow of your mercy
    in this time of uncertainty and distress.
    Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
    and lift up all who are brought low;
    that we may rejoice in your comfort
    knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
    in Christ Jesus our Lord.
    Amen.

    Our Mission Prayer

    Gracious and loving God, we pray for the mission of our church. By our worship and fellowship may we draw others to the love of God. In our lives may we live the gospel in kindness, forgiveness and compassion. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
