Welcome to Saint Oswald’s Church

Although public worship is suspended during this time, we continue to pray every day for the people of our parish. Morning prayer is being live streamed over Facebook from St. Peter’s Church, Darwen at 9.00am as many days as possible.
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
