Roughshod Theatre Company (part of Riding Lights)
7.00pm Wednesday 6 June 2018
Sowerby Methodist Church

Five young people in search of their futures reveal some surprising stories of hope in their new faith-filled show for 2018.
A passenger on a train gets help from an unexpected stranger, a community is transformed by a shattering lesson, a small time crook gets an offer he can't refuse...
Mixing comedy, dramatic storytelling, spoken word and the personal experience of the actors themselves, Roughshod deliver a show that asks: what happens when God intervenes in ordinary lives? In an anxious world of mixed messages it can be hard to find truth among the headlines.
Join the five performers (including Esther Irving from St Oswald's Church) for an energetic, entertaining show about faith, hope and everything in between.
Tickets £5 from Helen Irving 01845 524308.

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 Rev Dianne Gamble.
