Dear friends

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.

Dear Parishioners

What was your Valentine’s Day like?  This year I made doubly sure that Valentine’s Day was written in bold on my personal calendar. What it meant for me was that I set myself free to have no appointments after 4pm and I intentionally switched off my cell-phone. 

Looking back over my Valentine’s Day, it was worth the effort, especially when load shedding kicked in.  You figure it out… It only meant more candles of course!

Maybe Valentine’s Day and load shedding should go together.
