St Oswald's is a Church of England Church on the outskirts of Liverpool, in Netherton. It is 1 of the 2 churches, St. Helen's Church in Sefton village being the other, in the newly formed Team Ministry of Netherton and Sefton.


We're a busy church with lots of community activities and groups, as well as close links to St Oswald's C. of E. Primary School next door to the church.


We believe that there is a God with whom we can have a relationship through his Son Jesus Christ, and that God is active in the world today by the Holy Spirit. We're seeking both to grow in our relationship with God and to join in with the work of the Spirit. Our strapline is... 'sharing the warmth of God's love with all people,' and we want to make a real difference to the community of Netherton in which we are based.


Please use the tabs at the top of this page to find out more about our Sunday services and other regular activities and for how to get in touch with us.


We look forward to welcoming you to St Oswald's Church Centre.
