St. John the Baptist
Our ChurchSt John the Baptist‘s Church is a joyful and welcoming Christian community at the heart of our beautiful village. We aim to share the love of God with everyone. We strive to help people of all ages worship with us: families enjoy our Praise and Play and monthly Messy Church and we are developing church for teenagers through the Oswestry Rural Youth Church Project. People of all ages find a warm welcome at our 10.30am Holy Communion service each Sunday, as we gather for worship that is joyful and prayerful, with life related teaching about our shared Christian faith. We are privileged to host the Whittington International Music Festival in May each year. We are proud of our links with the Church of England School in the village and support it in every way we can as it delivers quality education to children ages 4 to 11 within a caring Christian environment underpinned by its core values of love, honesty, courage, quality and community.
