We hope this email finds you well and that you’ve been enjoying the lovely weather!
We wanted to share with you the recent and difficult news that the OHP Sisters are intending to sell St Oswald’s. We know that this hasn’t been an easy decision for them.
The Trustees and Community believe that what we have here at St Oswald’s is precious and so we ask you to join us in praying for wisdom as we explore creative & life-giving ways to continue the ministry. This may include the possibility of buying the building. Once we are clearer about our next step we will be in touch about the various ways you might be able to support us.
We are committed to the life and ministry of St Oswald’s and so we are taking bookings as normal and plan to upload some events & dates for 2024 in the next week or so. If at any point there is any question over the feasibility of your booking we will ensure you are informed at the earliest opportunity. Please be assured that all money paid to us is safe and would be fully refunded should your booking be affected by events beyond our control.
In the meantime, please pray for the Community and Trustees as we navigate these new challenges and opportunities. We really value your support and partnership with us.
We’ll keep you posted!
With our love and blessings
Phil Stone (Chair of Trustees) and Paul & Jackie Reily (Community Leaders)
