Welcome to Saint Oswald’s Church

There is a Messy Sermon Group for children during the service and a small play area at the back of church for young children. Afterwards, there are refreshments for those who want to stop and chat.

Weekly Prayer and Readings

The Third Sunday of Epiphany

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.

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.
