About Us

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

It is a welcoming church with a wide range of ages worshipping there. The weekly 8.30am service is a said Eucharist while at 10am there is a Said Eucharist except on the second Sunday of the month when it is All Age Worship with a young people's band accompanying the hymns. On the First and Third Sundays in term time Sunday Club is held in the Methodist Hall at 10am.

The 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.

Harewood Methodist Chapel is no longer open as a place of worship
