The Eucharist is celebrated every Sunday morning at 10.00am. It is conducted in the Anglo-Catholic tradition but is still family friendly. Communicant members of other churches are welcome to take communion with us, those who prefer to may receive a blessing. There is a creche area in the church for younger children, but during the current pandemic we are limiting access. Refreshments following the service have been resumed so please join us for tea or coffee.
There is also a 'said' Eucharist each Wednesday morning at 9.30am.
THE DAILY OFFICES
Morning Prayer is said in church daily at 9.00am except when there's a Mass. At the moment we are not having public evening prayer services but they may well return soon, watch this space.
St Oswald's observes many of the feasts which often seem to get overlooked in the modern church. We observe the Feast of All Souls in November, we observe the Ascension and Corpus Christi, and we include the traditional foot-washing in our Maundy Thursday liturgy.
Many special events are also marked here. In recent years we had a special service to recall the centenaries of both the outbreak and the end of the First World War, there was also a service to mark 75 years since the Battle of Britain and the Coventry Blitz. In 2017 we held a special service of Dedication of the memorial for the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.
Our last biggie was for the installation of Fr Ed Backhouse as the new parish priest of Tile Hill. it was not quite the occasion that we had hoped, due to Covid restrictions, but we are planning a full-blown welcome service for the near future.
