Junior Church at St Oswald's
In normal times Junior Church meets on Sunday mornings in term time. We begin in the Church Hall just before 11.00am, where the children undertake various activities before joining the congregation in church in time for the administration of communion. After communion the children tell the congregation about what they have done in the hall.

The Junior Church has links with an orphanage in Nepal and regularly raises money for the work of the charity that runs the orphanage. Because usual fundraising events cannot take place because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Junior Church has come up with a different way to help. Between 14th June and 26th July the children, their families and the leaders are raising money for ADM Nepal by walking 500 miles. Click this link https://www.totalgiving.co.uk/mypage/500miles to find out more about the challenge, make a donation and learn about ADM Nepal. As at Saturday 25th July a total of 519 miles has been walked and £1,173 raised.
Here is a short video to introduce the challenge::
And here is a picture of one of our Junior Church families adding a few miles to the total:
