The Archbishops have directed that public worship should be suspended in all Church of England Churches until further notice.

We regret that therefore it is necessary for St. Oswald’s to close with immediate effect.

The Churchwardens, Sean Hegarty and Peter Halladay, are looking at all options for how St Oswald’s can best respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and are working closely with Revd Tim Godden, the Archdeacons and the Diocese of Bristol to identify how we can continue to provide for our community until such time as the church can reopen.

Please like and follow our Facebook page for the latest updates from us.


Stay safe, and God Bless you all.


The Revd Tim Godden who is the vicar of St. Oswald’s. Bedminster Down and St. Peter’s, Bisopsworth is preparing video services in the vicarage and then uploading them to the St. Peter’s website.
