St. Oswald’s Church is part of the Diocese of Blackburn. We have a vision for a ‘healthy’ church transforming our community of Knuzden and Shadsworth through regular worship and service. All are welcome to our services and other activities… see the Diary for details. If you are wanting a Christening, church wedding or need to contact us about a funeral, just click the appropriate menu item.

Follow our blog posts below to keep up with local events. For events further afield in the Diocese, CLICK HERE, for the Diocesan web page.
