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!

Currently we only hold one service a week at 10am on Sunday mornings. This service is also live streamed on our Facebook page 'Collingham with Harewood' (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.

Before the Covid-19 pandemic we had a weekly 8.30am Sunday service (said Eucharist) while at 10am there was a Eucharist with singing. On the second Sunday of the month we have All Age Worship with a young people's band accompanying the hymns. 

We hope also to have our Sunday Club (for primary school children) which is held in the Methodist Hall back up and running soon along with 'Teddy Praise' for pre-schoolers and their family/carers.

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.
