Welcome to our church - St Oswald King and Martyr, Church Street, Oswestry, Shropshire, SY11 2SY


    A warm welcome to the web-site of St. Oswald’s, the Town Centre Church of Oswestry, which has been a place of worship for almost 1000 years. The church is open daily for visitors throughout the year. We hope to offer an environment which enables all to come closer to God through prayer and worship, reflection and action. Worship, both contemporary and traditional is supported by choral music of high quality and by thoughtful preaching. 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.


    Rev Harvey Gibbons















    Call to prayer from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York: (https://www.churchofengland.org/prayer-and-worship/worship-texts-and-resources/praying-peace-world)

    As Christians, our response to a crisis must always be rooted in prayer. And so we invite you to join with us in praying most earnestly for an outpouring of the Spirit of God, that the world may once again choose peace, strengthening those international bodies that enable us to work and live together as one humanity inhabiting one world.

    We lament with the people of Ukraine, and we pray for the innocent, the frightened and those who have lost loved ones, homes, and family.

    We pray for those in Ukraine who suffer grievously, for all who take decisions around the world, and for the people and leaders of Russia too.

    Week day opening:   The church is open Monday to Saturday 10 am to 5 pm for visitors, and for private prayer and devotion.

    CAR PARK - We have introduced a parking scheme for the church car park. If you are using the car park to attend a church event please advise the parish office of your car registration number to avoid a possible fine.
