The church stands above the village of Winwick on raised ground, welcoming all who pass through.
There is evidence that Christianity has been practiced on the site for over 1,000 years - Winwick is mentioned in the Domesday Book and the church is an integral part of the area's history and community.
Currently, the church is only partially open because of restoration work needed after damage caused by the death watch beetle. You can read about the restoration work to date on our restoration page. We still have a great deal of money to raise to complete the work, so if you would like to make a donation, we would be very grateful.
Feel free to look around the site to learn more about the church's history, to discover how to book a baptism, wedding or funeral, or to find out when our services are held. We are also very happy to help with familyhistory enquiries and are proud of the links we have with families in many countries.
Whatever your reason for visiting St Oswald's Church, Winwick, you can be sure of a warm welcome!
