Since Michaelmas 2009 what was three Anglican congregations have been merged into one, based at the Parish Church of St Oswald (below). The Vicar is the Revd. Nancy Goodrich (since August 2021).
We are delighted to announce that the Revd Nancy Goodrich has become the new Vicar of the Parish of Bollington (08/2021). We very much welcome the Revd Nancy and her family to St Oswald’s and pray that she will have a fulfilling ministry here with us.
The church is open for services on Sundays, but during the COVID emergency other activities may be restricted. Please check on the website for the most recent details.
The web site includes a Family Research section, with many of our baptism, marriage and burial registers as well as memorial inscriptions – all searchable by name. This is also the home of the Bollington Online War Memorial, which includes potted histories and many photographs of local men who served in WW1 and casualties of both World Wars.
Although some of these records can be found on other websites, nowhere else is such extensive coverage available for Bollington! And it’s free to use, although we would be grateful for donations from those who find the search facilities useful.
A modern history of St Oswald’s Church, St Oswald’s Church, Bollington – the First 100 Years, has been written by Chris Ward and is available from the church and the Discovery Centre .
