     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. Oswalds continues to be closed for in-person worship, but not for too much longer, we hope!

     We have made the difficult decision, with much sadness, to close for in-person worship and private prayer. We have grown increasingly concerned about the infection rates in the area and we wish to support the stay at home message to control the virus and protect the NHS.


    Hi everyone, our shared Lent Course for 2021 is 'Opening the scriptures: setting our hearts on fire'. It is a Churches Together course which invites us to ‘open the scriptures’ and read them with with both our hearts and our heads.
