Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come
Prayer services in our 5 churches

Thy Kingdom Come is a prayer movement started by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ.

The hope is that: people will commit to pray with God's world-wide family as a church, individually or as a family; that churches will hold prayer events, such as 24-7 prayer, prayer stations and prayer walks, across the UK and in other parts of the world; and that people will be empowered through prayer by the Holy Spirit, finding new confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.

In our group of churches we will be holding services of prayer as follows. Please try to support the event in your church and at least one of the others, so that it also becomes an opportunity to pray alongside and get to know people from different parishes in our group:
» Friday 26 May - St Mary's Church Bagby at 7.00pm
» Saturday 27 May - All Saints Church, Thirkleby at 10.30am
» Tuesday 30 May - St Cuthbert's Church, Sessay at 2.30pm
» Wednesday 31 May - St Mary's Church, Kilburn at 7.00pm
» Thursday 1 June - St Oswald's Church, Sowerby at 7.00pm

Welcome to our website

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 Rev Nicky Carnall.
