Welcome to our parish churches


Whoever you are and wherever you are from, you are welcome to share in our worship in Guiseley and Esholt. Our purpose is to share the Good News and love of Jesus Christ with all in our parish; to welcome those who respond and to nurture faith.

St Oswald’s Church is open for private prayer every day from 9 am until 5 pm during the summer months and in the winter from 9 am until dusk.

Seeking Sopranos

The Choir of St Oswald’s Parish Church, is currently seeking Sopranos. Can you sing Soprano?  Why not join us!

The family have moved too far away, or they have gone on to University, or … for whatever reason,  we find ourselves urgently needing soprano voices to continue to cover our usual wide range of choral music.
