Welcome to our church.
Welcome to YOUR church.
If you live in Tile Hill North, Tanyard Farm, Banner's Brook or Bannerbrook Park then we are your parish church.
St Oswald's is unique in being the only traditional Anglo-Catholic church on this side of Coventry. If traditional worship is to your taste you may find that we are just what you are looking for wherever you live (over half of the people on our electoral roll travel from outside the parish because they love what we do).
If you're walking down Jardine Crescent, you may just miss us. We are that tall building (often mistaken for a warehouse or Fire Station) between the Health Centre and the Library. But don't let appearances fool you. Inside you will find a beautifully kept building (grade 2 listed) which is equally at home as a Foodbank or as a place of quiet contemplation and prayer.
So, if you're in the area, do drop in for Mass on a Sunday (or Wednesday) or for one of our prayer services. You can find us here, you never know, it might change your life.
Although the Covid restrictions have been lifted we are still asking people to wear a face covering to church unless you are exempt and we ask you to sanitise your hands on arrival. There will still be no physical contact during the Peace and Communion will continue to be in one kind only.
We are, however, moving moving towards some semblance of normality; a serving team will now be in the Sanctuary during Mass and refreshments are again being served after ther service. Congregational singing has now been resumed, but we ask that people who wish to sing sit near the front of the church and allow a safe space at rear for those who do not wish to be among singers.
St Oswald's is also the base for St Andy's, a church plant from St Andrew's Church in Eastern Green. St Andy's provides a much more relaxed and informal style of worship and is family friendly. St Andy's meets at St Oswald's on Sunday afternoons at 3.00pm.
|St Oswald's makes the safeguarding of children, young people and vulnerable adults a priority. We carefully select and recruit the people who work here by using the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) to ensure that they have the necessary clearance to work with the vulnerable. We also ensure that all workers are given the necessary safeguarding training appropriate to the position which they hold within the church.|
|All of our safeguarding policies (which have been approved by the Parochial Parish Council) conform to the Coventry Diocese "Promoting a Safer Church" document. You can view a copy of the document here: .|
