St Oswald's Church
There has been a church on the current site of St Oswalds for over a 1,000 years. The current building stands at the heart of the village and has served the population of Warton for over 600 years.
We welcome you all to St Oswald's, Warton. Warton is a fairly large village near to Carnforth, in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
St Oswald's is a very beautiful church building dating from the 14th century, but there has been a church here for over 1000 years. We welcome many visitors to St Oswald's, some who are walkers, others interested in our connection with the family of George Washington, still more who come to pray in the creatively devotional atmosphere of this very special place.
Beautiful though the church building is, the real beauty of the church here is our faithful congregation. We are people of mixed ages and backgrounds, and we share a commitment to welcoming in the name of Christ all who come here.
Our worship is centered on the celebration of the presence of Christ in word and sacrament, the regular celebration of the Eucharist (Holy Communion) is at the heart of our life. We enjoy a strong choral tradition, with a keen choir and a repertoire of music rarely found in village churches.
There will always be a welcome for you at St Oswald's.
