St Oswald’s Church warmly welcomes you

Situated by the banks of the River Rothay in the centre of Grasmere village, St Oswald’s is a historic place of worship, much loved by local people and over 100,000 visitors each year. Its services are attended by a faithful, local congregation as well as many who come to stay in Grasmere. St Oswald’s has a fine musical reputation and is home to the annual Grasmere Rushbearing.

News and Events

This Lent we are invited to follow a pattern of readings taking us through Luke’s Gospel.

With the increasing prevalence of the coronavirus, we have regrettably taken the decision to again suspend services at St. Oswald’s until further notice.

A weekly Reflection is available
