Worship at St Oswald's 

Shown below are the regular services at St Oswald's. You will find a range of service formats, ranging from traditional to contemporary, formal to informal and from the active to the contemplative. Music ranges from well-known hymns, accompanied by organ and robed choir, to modern worship songs accompanied by the church music group. We hope that  you will find a style of worship that suits you.

Children

Children are welcome at all services, and in the church hall we provide a Sunday School for 3 1/2 year olds upwards during our regular Sunday 10am services. After communion, they are welcomed into the congregation and join them for the rest of the service.

 
Members of the congregation are closely involved in many aspects of all services, whether (amongst other roles) singing in the choir, reading lessons, or devising and leading the less formal services.
