Welcome to our website

St Oswald's is a beautiful and historic Church of England Parish Church in the village of Sowerby, just outside Thirsk. It is attended by people of all ages who live in the village and surrounding area, and by many visitors to this scenic part of North Yorkshire. St Oswald's has a thriving ministry to children and young people, a variety of music styles, opportunities for learning about the Christian faith in small groups or simply being quiet and reflective together.

We enjoy close links with our sister churches - St Mary's at Bagby, St Mary's at Kilburn, St Cuthbert's at Sessay and All Saints at Thirkleby - as well as Sowerby Methodist Church and the Thirsk Team Ministry. We are also members of the local Churches Together Group. This website tells you a lot more about the ministry of St Oswald's Church.

If there is any further information you would like, please do not hesitate to contact either of the Churchwardens, David Tucker and Simon Birkbeck.
