Welcome to Saint Oswald’s Church

Welcome the website and blog of Saint Oswald’s Church, Knuzden. St. Oswald’s is a warm and friendly church that worships in the Sacramental tradition. We hope you enjoy this site .

Almighty God,
as your kingdom dawns,
turn us from the darkness of sin to the
      light of holiness,

During this period of Coronavirus (excepting lock down), a Sunday morning service is being held at church 10am every week. It is a short Holy Communion service with provision for children. If you are happy to come to church we look forward to seeing you!

In the meantime, we also 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 our Blog.

People are welcome to spend time in the Church garden where there are benches. Please, keep to social distancing rules.

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.
