Welcome from Deb

Dear Friends,

I am Reverend Deb Statter and I am Rector of the Netherton and Sefton Team Ministry.

Our team ministry has two churches: St Oswald’s Church which is next to school and St Helen’s Church in Sefton village next to the Punchbowl. I would like to welcome our new team Vicar, Reverand Ali Chesworth, who joined us in September.

St Oswald’s Church values its close links with school which have grown over the years. Our Church is involved in weekly worship, we have services of Holy Communion each term and Mini Church twice a term for Nursery and Reception. Once a half term members of the church meet with the Vision leaders from the school to plan services together.

The Church will offer a weekly After School Club called Ozzy's. There is also opportunity for Year 6 children to explore confirmation. (preparation to take bread and wine at Communion)

Every year we offer ‘Experience Christmas’  and ‘Experience Easter’ giving opportunity for the children to explore the stories of Christmas and Easter in new ways.

We have end of term services in Church. At Christmas we have a whole school Christingle service, at Easter we have a service re-enacting the story of Jesus and in summer we have a celebration of the children’s work over the year.

From time to time we have had school baptism services for children and their siblings to be christened.

We have Messy Church on the 2nd Wednesday of every month, at 4.30pm which is a great opportunity for families to come and have fun together. There are craft activities, a Bible story and prayer, before sharing food together. 

In Church we have a children’s group called Footsteps which offers activities for children during our main service on a Sunday, with the exception of the first Sunday of the month when we hold an all age, family service where children often read and lead prayers. The majority of the children attend St Oswald’s school.

A new youth group will be up and running in early January.

There is a pensioner group on the 3rd Saturday of every month at 1.30pm in Church.

We have 'Grub @ the hub' on the last saturday of every month, except December and August, which supplies delicious home cooked food, all welcome from 12pm.

Please do check our Church website for the latest news on services, family events and activities.

We see our Church community and our School community as one community where everyone is valued and valuable.

We hope you will come and join us for a service,
