Daily Prayer

Click here for a short daily service.


God of all mercy,
your Son proclaimed good news to the poor,
release to the captives,
and freedom to the oppressed:
anoint us with your Holy Spirit
and set all your people free
to praise you in Christ our Lord.

Sunday Worship Announcement

Lancashire County Council and Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council Public Health Officials have asked for places worship to close forthwith owing to the severity of the current Covid-19 situation. In the light of this, St. Oswald’s Church will not be holding services at church until further notice. 

In the meantime, we will post a national or Diocesan Church of England Sunday Service from 9am onward each week and a sermon by the Vicar or a colleague at 2pm all on the Blog.

A prayer during the pandemic

Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy. Sustain and support the anxious, be with those who care for the sick, and lift up all who are brought low; that we may find comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
