A warm welcome to the website of St. Oswald’s, the Town Centre Church of Oswestry, which has been a place of worship for almost 1000 years. Worship is supported by choral music of high quality and by thoughtful preaching, prayer and action. St. Oswald’s works closely in friendship with other local churches and organisations in the wider community as we seek to share God’s love for all.
