Update about our services

Because of the high rate of infection, both in the UK and this part of Yorkshire, Sunday and weekly services will be streamed for a period of time as a way of helping protect God’s children.
The service, on Sunday 10th January, will be streamed via Facebook from St Oswald’s Parish Church at 0930. It is our time to come together to thank God for all that He gives to us, and to pray for all who are struggling in these most difficult of times.
May God bless us and keep us safe.

In order to avoid any disappointment as a result  of the need to limit numbers, this will be live-streamed from St Oswald’s on Facebook. The component parts of the Christingles will be bagged and handed out the weekend before, via St Oswald’s Church. Donations to The Children’s Society will also be collected then. The Christingles will be assembled as part of the service.
Midnight Mass  Christmas Eve 11.30pm
Will take place at St Oswald’s Church with socially distanced congregation.
Christmas Day  8am and 9.30am
Will take place in Church, both with socially distanced congregations.

Thank you and God bless you at this difficult time,
Father David and the team.

Services resumed at St Oswald’s Church

The Rector, Associate Priest and PCC are pleased to announce that as of  Sunday, 16th August, we are resuming the 8am Book of Common Prayer Eucharistic Service as part of our increased offering.

All are welcome to attend this most beautiful of liturgical services. Please be reassured that the church will be sanitised before the service at 9.30am.

Choral Evensong is resuming  at 6pm on the 2nd and 4th Sundays in the month .  These services  will not be streamed but it would be lovely to see as many of you as possible in the congregation.

We have been back in church on a Sunday morning for the past 3 weeks and numbers in the congregation have been around 50. Social distancing is working well, and, following  directives from the government and CofE,  masks are required in all places of worship (with the exception of people involved in the service).

All are welcome at our services.
