Welcome to our website for the Church of England parishes of Malpas, Threapwood, and Bickerton
The two Church of England parishes that form the United Benefice of Malpas, Threapwood, and Bickerton came together in 2011.
We seek to serve the people of this rural community and bring the love of God revealed in Jesus Christ to all who live within the area.
Our churches are all active musically and socially – please have a look at our “Forthcoming Events” for details of concerts, recitals, fundraisers and social events.
There will be NO 11.00 am service at St Oswald’s on August 16th
Communion at 8.00 am and Evening Prayer at 6.30 pm as usual.
THIS SATURDAY, 8TH AUGUST:
Please come along to this very special concert – tickets available on the door, £5. The Mayfield Consort will also be singing at the 11.00 am Parish Communion Service on Sunday 9th August at St Oswald’s.
MUSIC FOR A SUMMER’S EVENING
A wonderful concert was held on Friday night (10th July) in aid of the Church Fabric Fund, featuring talented local bass-baritone Peter Edge with our own Church Choir, the newly formed St Oswald’s Band and Felix Gideonse – see under CONCERTS for full review!
Look out for Ozzie Scarecrow who will go out on display at St Oswald’s this week, as part of the Malpas Scarecrow Trail. Made by Margaret Bennion and Ann Welby, Ozzie is a great addition for Ozzies Sunday Club and will no doubt be joining the children and teddy bears at their picnic on Sunday 12th July.
