Prayer is a prerequisite of all we do. These are groups specifically for prayer.

The Community of St Oswald.

The Community of St Oswald is a group of people who gather every other month  for breakfast, usually Saturday morning.  There is prayer, bible study and time for reflection before a good breakfast and a chat.  The group takes its inspiration from the Community of St Chad set up by the Bishop of Lichfield.  The community welcomes any Christian who would like to deepen their faith and discipleship in the company of others.

For more details and the date of the next prayer breakfast, see the Calendar and the Weekly News.
