Welcome to the page where you can find the Rector’s letters to the Parish.
It is a way of keeping in touch with you by writing about his personal experiences in and around the Parish, and occasionally including more general Anglican news and views.
You will be able to gain an insight into our parish life and come to know the Rector. You will also be able to share in our events of worship and fellowship.
Our Rector, Revd Selwyn Engelbrecht, will be writing this weekly letter to you all.
Do enjoy them, and get to know St Oswald’s better through them.

I do not know where the phrase, “It is what it is “comes from. Nor can I recall from whom I heard it for the first time. I only remember, that when I heard it for the first time, I latched onto it immediately, because it helped me at that particular time to find relief from a very confusing situation.
