Church and Oswaldtwistle railway station serves both the Accrington suburb of Church and the small town of Oswaldtwistle, in Lancashire, England. The station is 5 1⁄3 miles (8.6 km) east of Blackburn railway station, on the East Lancashire Line operated by Northern.
The platforms are linked via a subway, but only the Preston-bound one has step-free access. It is unstaffed, but like other stations on the line it has been fitted with passenger information screens and a public address system to provide train running information. There are no ticket vending machines available and so passengers must purchase their tickets in advance or on the train.
On Sundays, this service is two-hourly in both directions. This is supplemented with the Sunday hourly service to Blackburn westbound, and to Burnley Central and Manchester Victoria eastbound, which passes through (but does not stop) on Mondays to Saturdays.
