Thanks from OSC

Please would you pass on our sincere thanks to all at Magdalen Road Church for your financial donation to Oxford Schools Chaplaincy. We are so very grateful for your support.

The work of OSC has grown considerably over the past 2 years. 50 lessons were delivered in 2016/2017 increasing to 79 in 2017/2018. In December 2018, we delivered 17 lessons and 4 assemblies, speaking to over 1500 students on the meaning of Christmas, and during March and April this year we spoke to more than 600 students on the significance of Easter. For the past 6 weeks, OSC volunteers have been in Gosford Hill School and, as a result, the whole of Year 9 has now received a lesson from OSC on the subject of Forgiveness.

In addition to lessons, two new Christian Unions have been established as well as continued support for three existing CUs. OSC has also initiated encouragement evenings for Christians working in schools, organized an annual prayer night for schools and continued to support school prayer groups. We are strengthening our relationships with local schools and we are encouraged by the positive feedback we are receiving from teachers. We are particularly heartened by the many individuals and churches praying for OSC and we are in no doubt that the work of OSC is progressing as a result of the ongoing prayers of many Christians.

We are so appreciative of your support in this work, for your prayers and encouragement. Please do convey our thanks to all at Magdalen Road Church.

Yours sincerely,
Danielle Gullett
