Church of England Diocese of Derby Ashbourne with Mapleton

St Oswald's Church, Ashbourne

Welcome to St Oswald's Ashbourne. We are a lively Anglican parish church with a warm welcome for all people, a long history, a wonderful musical tradition and some stunning architecture.

The parish of Ashbourne: St Oswald is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Derby’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
