Teddy Praise

Teddy Praise is an opportunity for pre-school children of whatever age to enjoy a Bible Story, crafts, songs and prayers together with the space to run around and play while their parents and carers can have a chat and refreshments. Even if your child is a small baby you can come and meet others. The new date is the first Monday of each month in the Methodist Hall between 1.30 and 3pm.  More information from Amy Lowe 07791654948

Annual Parochial Church meeting

The Annual meeting is at 7.30pm on Wednesday 25th April in Lady Elizabeth Hasting School, Collingham. 

The meeting is in two halves. The Vestry meeting elects the two Churchwardens to serve for the year and any resident of Collingham Ecclesiastical Parish may vote in that. It is followed immediately by the Annual Church meeting which elects members of the PCC and hears accounts of the life of the church and its finances for the past year. Only those on the church’s electoral roll may vote in this meeting. We will be seeking four new members of the PCC and filling another vacancy from last year. If you are interested details of what is involved and nomination forms are in church as are nomination forms for churchwardens. There will be an opportunity for people to speak about anything to do with church life so do come along and listen and contribute.

Hymn Books

St Oswald’s would like to replace its hymn books to give us a wider range of hymns for our worship and also because our current stock is becoming rather tatty. This edition is also no longer in print.

Many of those we currently use were paid for by donations in memory of someone or to celebrate a wedding, a baptism or an anniversary.

If you would like to make such a donation and have a bookplate commemorating the person or occasion you are remembering in ‘your hymn book’ pick up a leaflet in church or contact Sylvia or one of the churchwardens. The cost of a Words edition will be £9, Large Print £15 or £25 for a Full Music copy.

If you would like to see the proposed new book Sylvia has a copy.
