We will continue to monitor the situation and implement new guidelines as they are issued.  Full details of this guidance can be found here.

St Oswald's Church has been the focus for worship of God for many centuries. We continue that tradition with the services that we offer on a daily and weekly basis. That same tradition is continued throughout our other churches in the benefice:

When the current restrictions are lifted, the pattern of services looks like this:

St Mary's Mappleton (9.15am every Sunday, alternates between Communion and Morning Paryer)

St John's Ashbourne (9.15am every Sunday, alternates between Communion and Morning Prayer)

St Peter's Snelston (9.30am every Sunday, alternates between Communion and Morning Prayer)

Holy trinity, Clifton (10.45am every Sunday, alternates between Communion and Morning Prayer)

St Mary and St Barlok, Norbury (11am every Sunday, alternates between Communion and Morning Prayer)

Our services are open to anyone, and no previous experience is required!

We know that one size does not fit all, and hope that there will be something in all our worship that will draw people of any age or background into a real experience of God’s loving presence in their lives and in the world.

Sunday Services at St Oswalds

8am  Holy Communion A quiet service which lasts about 40 minutes and uses traditional language as we gently connect with the deepest truths about ourselves and the God who created us. The perfect early start to your Sunday!
10.30am Parish Communion

The celebration of the Eucharist (meaning “thanksgiving”) lies at the heart of our life as a church. Here we encounter the life-changing presence of Jesus Christ amongst us as we gather together, explore the meaning of Scripture for our lives, and share bread and wine in the sacrament Holy Communion. Finally we leave with a renewed commitment to share the love of God with others in our lives during the week.

There are two gatherings of the congregation -one in the church building (formal) and the other in the Parish Centre (informal and good for families). We all come together as a complete congregation to share Holy Communion.

6.30pm Evensong This beautiful service provides the perfect opportunity for prayerful reflection and thanksgiving at the start of the week (and perhaps the end of a busy weekend!). The wonderful choral music draws us to praise God and open our hearts to his love for us in Jesus Christ.

We'll be sharing videos of our Sunday celebrations of Holy Communion here.

If you'd like to follow the words, the Lent order of service can be found here.
