St Oswald's, Malpas

This ancient church is situated at the heart of the small town of Malpas. It is a fine example of medieval architecture and has witnessed to the truths of the Christian faith for over 1,000 years. The present building mainly dates from the middle of the fifteenth-century.

The church is very much involved in the life of the town and wider community, and has particularly strong links with the local primary schools.

Worship at St Oswald’s is focused on the Eucharist; thought-through liturgy is valued and finds expression in the Book of Common Prayer and Common Worship. Over the past couple of years we have developed a very fine choral tradition as an integral part of the worship we offer.

The daily offices are said throughout the week and there is a weekday celebration of Holy Communion, and all major feast days are observed. There is a more contemplative service of evening prayer every Sunday from the Book of Common Prayer.
