Our work

St Oswald’s is an outward-looking church which cares deeply for the local community and the whole world. We pray together for the world each time we gather together and remember those in need.

We also support many charities by raising funds, raising awareness or simply hard work from our members.

Here is some of our regular work:

South Ayrshire Foodbank (Trussell Trust)
There is a box at the back of the church for donations to the foodbank.
Find out more at the South Ayrshire Foodbank website.

Blythswood Care Shoebox Appeal
Each year members of St Oswald’s fill shoeboxes to be distributed to places of need at Christmas. In 2016, St Oswald’s sent 81 boxes and eight blankets that were distributed to Moldova.
Find out more at the Blythswood Care website.

Save the Children
In November 2015 and 2016, St Oswald’s Church and members of the local Save the Children group shared a week in the Maybole Charity shop. In 2016, over £1800 was raised and split evenly between St Oswald’s and Save the Children. We are now taking donations for November 2017.
