There are a number of ways in which you can join us and support us in praying for our city's schools.

OSC prayer group meets every Tuesday, from 10.50 - 11.30 to hold our schools, their leadership, their teachers, and their students in our prayers.  We have continued to meet online throughout lockdown as well as organising a number of prayer event throughout the year - we believe that prayer makes a difference! 

In addition, we now start off each term with a week of prayer from 7.30 to 8.00am. Do email us if you would like to join us at either group, or if you would like to receive prayer points to be praying along with us, at home.

The OSC Annual Pray for Schools event takes place in May each year.  Requests for prayer are gathered from schools in and around Oxford, and up to 100 friends and supporters meet in person or online, breaking out into small groups to pray for their local schools, and their needs.  Teachers, School Leaders and a Student will join us this year to talk a little about what life has been like in the last 12 months, and to look to the future, as we meet together to pray.

Local prayer groups meet around the city to support their local schools.  We are in touch with many of them:  if you would like to be introduced to your local group, or to start one, we would be happy to put you in touch with other Christians in your area.

If you would like to send us your requests for prayer, or answers to prayer, for which we can give thanks, please do email us on   We are happy to pray for you by name, if you wish, so please do make that clear.  Otherwise, all prayer requests are anonymised - we take your name and contact details off - and pop the requests onto prayer cards, which are used for 6 months, and then destroyed, unless you ask us to keep them.

We look forward to hearing from you, and hopefully seeing you at a Teachers Encouragement event in the new academic year.
