     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... (But not at the moment). 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

    St. Oswald's Annual meetings...

    This Sunday we are holding the APCM within the 10:30 Eucharist. It will be kept as short as possible and in addition to the usual elections and reports, will include an update about 'Shaping for Mission'. It is a hybrid format with people physically present and on line.
    Only members of the church electoral roll can attend so the APCM will be on Zoom. If you want to join us on Zoom please email Harvey and he will send an invite. The service will be on Facebook as usual but the stream will stop for the APCM.

    THIS WEEK (Beginning 10th May) is CHRISTIAN AID WEEK. YES! But this year no-one will ask you to collect or come knocking at your door for a donation. Instead, Christian Aid has given each church its own online giving page on a website called, 'Tap Simple'. It is indeed simple, if you click the link, you can donate and see a story of how the money is to be used. The St Oswald's total has been well over £2000 in previous years. Let's see if we can get somewhere near that or even top it! There will also be an opportunity to donate in church, securely via envelope. 


    We will continue to live stream Morning Prayer and a Sunday Parish Eucharist off our Facebook page and this website on the SERVICES page where you can also find the orders of service.

    Please do join us in prayer for those who are sick, those who are isolating and all the key workers who are supporting our communities. Please keep safe.


    PLEASE NOTE our new Shaping for Mission tab. To find it, hover over the Weekly News in the main menu above. News about Shaping for Mission will be posted here, and there is an excellent  video by Bishop Michael and a link to the Diocese web page.

    Oswestry and Borders Foodbank:- If you are unable to get out to make a donation of food, please consider making a standing order to the Foodbank. Regular money donations are always welcome, however small.  Please see the Weekly News page for details.
