What's on?

Services at St Oswald's

Everyone is very welcome to join us at any of our services or events.

As we move towards autumn and winter we have a number of special services and events, including our Harvest Festival, Pet Service, the annual Bereavement Service, the Remembrance Day Service, and a number of services over the Christmas period.  We have also refreshed our programme of Open Days at the church.  November sees our first Community Music Festival at the church.

Our services and events are listed at the bottom of the page or by using this link.

Our Sunday worship takes place at 11am every week and is usually a service of Holy Communion. 

On the first Sunday of every month at 11am we have our All Age worship service, which is always very informal and interactive. Lots of people who are considering bringing their children for a Christening like to attend our All Age Worship (Family Service).

We also have a gentle mid-week service of Holy Communion at 10am every Tuesday in our Church Hall which can be found on Main Street, Methley LS26 9JE. You'll always find a friendly crowd at our services and there's always time after worship has finished for a cuppa and a chat and perhaps some homemade cake or tasty biscuits!
