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.

Our Annual Parochial Meeting will take place after Sunday Worship on 30th May. In view of this year’s unique circumstances, our ‘business’ will be short and to the point but we will do it to the best of our ability!

All persons whose names are entered upon the Church Electoral Roll of the parish are entitled to vote at the meeting.

The Annual Review of the Church Electoral Roll is now taking place. If you would like to add your name to the Church Electoral Roll, please complete one of the forms available in the Church and return it to the Churchwardens or David. Thankyou, David.
