The church serves a rural village community within leafy Cheshire. It is deeply historic, very beautiful and in the most wonderful setting. St Oswald’s is at the end of “The Cobbles” (which is, as it says, a traditional cobbled road), it is a wonderful, much-loved, black and white timber framed building, set is a beautiful churchyard, close to the Bells of Peover Pub, and enjoying the spectacular back-drop of open fields and the Peover Eye river.
This website contains information about the history of the church, its worship, the services of baptism (Christening) and marriage, (how to them plan and what they mean), and the planning of a funeral service. There is also a church diary of services and events, and articles on Christian faith and living the Christian life. The church is very much part of its local community and so the website gives details of fund raising and social events, as well as details of any major projects the church is undertaking.
The opportunity to learn and grow as Christians is not just confined to Sunday and mid-week worship. There is a “Bible study” group which meets on the first Tuesday of every month. 8.00pm until 9.30 pm, at The Vicarage in Lower Peover. This is a welcoming and friendly group which gathers to talk-over elements of faith and to learn from each another.
“Introduction to Christianity” is a short course which runs regularly through out the year. It follows Emmaus, the way of faith, and consists of 6 sessions to discuss: God is there and he matters, we need God in our lives, Jesus – his ministry and his death, The resurrection of Jesus, The Holy Spirit and Becoming a Christian. The course is suitable for people wanting to explore Christianity as well as people who have been Christians for years and who would like to chat about key elements of faith.
