About Us

St Oswald's is the Parish Church of Collingham with Harewood.

We are a welcoming, inclusive church - we'd love for you to join us! Why not 'Come and See?'

We have now returned to holding two Services each Sunday - an 8.30am Said Eucharist and a 10am Eucharist with music. The 10am service is also live streamed on our Facebook page 'Collingham with Harewood' (when we have the personnel to do this, see our Services and events page).  Through this technology, those who are unable to join us in person  in the church building can still feel connected.  Our most recent services are also saved on the Facebook page.

On the Second Sunday of the month we have an All Age Worship Service (shorter, more informal service without Communion).

We also have our Sunday Club (for primary school children)  and 'Teddy Praise' for pre-schoolers and their family/carers.  Both groups meet in the Collingham Methodist Church Hall.

St Oswald's church building is thought to be Saxon, with some of the stonework of the nave and chancel pre-dating the Norman Conquest of 1066. The church is dedicated to St Oswald, the Christian king of Northumbria until 642. There are substantial fragments of two Anglo-Saxon crosses - the Apostle's Cross, dated between the 8th and 10th Centuries, and a second Runic Cross decorated with intertwined dragons (or horses), thought to date from circa 900AD. The building was enlarged in the 14th century and the tower added in the 16th century. It was substantially altered internally in the 1840s and the windows changed  from stone mullions to'Gothic' style.
