About…

Holy Rood, Ossington

Ossington is a small agricultural village of around twenty cottages and houses and ten farms with a population of less than 100. The church was built 1782-5 in the grounds of Ossington Hall (the hall having since been demolished). The interior of the church retains many fine memorials to earlier owners of the Ossington estate. There are two organs, one fairly conventional and the second a rare Grade I listed barrel organ dating from 1836, still regularly used in services.

Read more about the church building’s history here on the Diocese’s Church History Project website  or here on a pdf of our guide leaflet.

The congregation although relatively small, represents a fairly large proportion of the village. The worship style alternates between Book of Common Prayer and Common Worship liturgy.

Our usual monthly cycle of worship is temporarily postponed due to the effects of the coronavirus. Please see our Services & Events page for the latest info.
