Regular Services at St Oswald's are held at the following times.
Morning Communion - Every Sunday at 8.00am, Book of Common Prayer
Sunday Morning - Holy Communion at 10.00am 1st Sunday of the month at 10.00am - All Age Service which is a shorter and less formal service in which the children are more able to participate. We love to welcome families to our services, and we don't mind at all if children want to bring books, colouring or small toys to occupy themselves during the service. The Children's Sunday Club (held at the same time as the morning service) meets in the Church. You can read more about the Children's Sunday Club below.

A Service especially for children, although everyone welcome. 11.30pm Midnight Holy Communion Wednesday 25th December 8am Holy Communion with traditional language 10am Holy Communion with Christmas Carols
Children's Sunday Club If you're worried that your children might not want to sit through a church service, why not bring them along to our Children's Sunday Club where they can explore faith through craft, fun, songs, stories in a warm and welcoming environment?
All ages are welcome, but we ask that children under 4 are accompanied by an adult.
The Sunday Club group is actively involved in the summer gala, carnival, Nativity and Messy Church. We particularly love our Nativity plays which usually involve innovative re-tellings of the Christmas story and a chance to dress up and have some fun at this special time of year.
Messy Church This is an opportunity for children to have fun and take part in craft activities which would not normally be part of the church service. Our Messy Church last Easter saw over 50 adults and children engaged in fun activities and a meal afterwards which everyone enjoyed. There's a great atmosphere and a variety of things to do which children and parents thoroughly enjoy.
