St Oswald's Church, Sowerby, North Yorkshire
On the way to Mexico... to ReBuild
Seven young people from St Oswald's Youth Group set off from Thirsk railway
station to Mexico early on 10 April 2014, to help build a house for a
family. Part of Urban Saints' ReBuild project, this trip will see the
young people build a new home for a poor family in Mexico, right from
the foundations upwards, using only hand tools, in only eleven days. They
will then hand over the keys and literally change one family's lives forever.
To fulfill this project Urban Saints has teamed up with partners, Amor
Ministries, in San Diego, California. Amor Ministries has been working
since 1980 to bring homes for some of the 800,000 Mexican families who
lack a basic, secure place to live. For more information on the project,
Please pray for the young people and the people they'll be meeting in
St Oswald's is a beautiful and historic Church of England Parish Church in the village of Sowerby, just outside Thirsk. It is attended by people of all ages who live in the village and surrounding area, and by many visitors to this scenic part of North Yorkshire.
St Oswald's has a thriving ministry to children and young people, a variety of music styles, opportunities for learning about the Christian faith in small groups or simply being quiet and reflective together.
We enjoy close links with our sister churches - St Mary's at Bagby, St Mary's at Kilburn, St Cuthbert's at Sessay and All Saints at Thirkleby - as well as Sowerby Methodist Church and the Thirsk Team Ministry. We are also members of the local Churches Together Group.
This website tells you a lot more about the ministry of St Oswald's Church. If there is any further information you would like, please do not hesitate to contact the Vicar Revd Nicky Carnall.
