Visit to Pusey House, Oxford

What a joy to spend a morning with Rev. Kay Blackwell and 12 students who all attend Christian Lunch clubs at The Oxford Academy, visiting Pusey House Chapel in Oxford this week.  Volunteers Kirstie and Jack, who have spent the last year supporting Kay’s work, joined the group for a tour of the library, followed by a talk by Fr. Mark, whom we discovered was a magician and circus entertainer, before taking the cloth!  Father Mark challenged the group to look at their lives in different ways, before asking us to think about how buildings can speak to us, during a visit to the Chapel.  After taking part in Midday prayers, the visit concluded with a lunch and games.  It was a joyful celebration, bringing together OSC volunteers and the students who are exploring faith for the first time, at the end of Kay’s second year at TOA.  Sadly we can’t share images of the students at this time, but it was wonderful to see them engaging staff and students at Pusey House with some very challenging questions.
