Church of England Diocese of Lichfield Saint Martin's

About Us

Welcome to the ancient Parish Church of St. Martins, near Oswestry, in Shropshire.  

With close ties to the community, we are a lively and friendly village church which enjoys worshipping in different styles and times to suit all ages. The normal Sunday worship service is at 9:30am and is Communion (the 4th Sundays are often Service of the Word). This varies during Christmas, and during the current COVID situation. Currently (January 2021), we are just having Sunday services streamed on Zoom.

Family history enquiries: please note the church only holds relatively RECENT (approximately 10-20 years) registers of burials and marriages.  Please see the separate page we’ve made on Family history about burials specifically. Please try Shropshire Archives at Shrewsbury (online at and for our archived parish records.

The Church is a popular place for Weddings and Baptisms (Christenings), and in normal times our adjoining Chapter House is available for various community activities. We have a large, well kept churchyard and a good sized car park.

Please do look at our website or call for more details, and become part of the 1,000 years of worship history here.
