Worship Committee

The Worship Committee is a group of parishioners who meet regularly with the Vicar and the Director of Music to plan the worship at St Oswald’s. The agenda for meetings includes the discussion of the liturgy, readings and music for individual Sundays, for the seasons of the Church’s year and for special festivals and celebrations.

Flower & Sanctuary Guild

This is a group of women who make sure the church is prepared for the various services. They attend to the Alter linen and candles, see to the supply of Bread and Wine and wafers for communion, and prepare the church for the changing seasons of the church year. Fresh flowers are arranged each week in the sanctuary and around the church. All these women are wonderfully artistic, and present the church for a wedding in a most attractive manner. They use the colour schemes designated by the brides, with the flower arrangements and decorations on the ends of the pews. The church is prepared through the week for funerals and after the services again using fresh flowers and appropriate use of candles.

A call for new members:

Next year, several members of the Sanctuary Guild will be retiring after many years of devoted service We would love to hear from anyone who would like to try this rewarding work. A job description can be obtained from Kerry Ennis. No special skills are required as we all learnt on the job, and we helped and taught each other. The commitment is about one turn on the roster, doing the flowers on either Friday or Saturday each six weeks. Also, if anyone would like to help to set up for the services, change the candies etc. I would be very happy to work with them until they felt confident.
