     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


    A Happy, healthy and safe New Year to you all!



    A prayer for the Week of Christian Unity

    Lord, you led us out of darkness to hope in Jesus. Unite us in our commitment to establish your reign of love, justice and peace, bringing light to those living in the darkness of despair and disillusionment. Shine your light upon us and surround us with the warmth of your love. Lift us up to you, so that our lives may glorify you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
