St Oswald

A very warm "Welcome" to St Oswald's Church, Grasmere

We are in the heart of the central Lake District, now The Lakes World Heritage Site. St Oswald's is a mediaeval church on a 7th century site - a sacred place of prayer and celebration since the earliest days of North British Christianity. William and his wife Mary with sister Dorothy Wordsworth rest in our churchyard along with family members and villagers. St Oswald's continues to offer worship, music, festivals and poetry today.

Locals and visitors 'belong' here, in the quiet of a weekday visit and the sung Eucharistic worship on Sundays and festivals. Join us!

St Oswald's welcomes you to share Holy Communion throughout the year, with excellent music from our organist and choir. We follow Common Worship Order One, with rich seasonal material to celebrate the major Christian festivals and times of the year.

Join us to sing, to pray, to share, to reflect, to 'be' in this wonderful sacred place of prayer throughout the centuries.

There are four Sundays each year when our Methodist Service is held, which may not include Holy Communion. Please check via email or phone.

We have a toy box in the Langdale Aisle and there are festival family-friendly Sunday services from time to time.

Share with locals and visitors over coffee/tea/squash and biscuits after the service, in the Langdale Aisle (in church).
