    • CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE 25th JULY:-

      Further to the Prime Minister’s announcement that places of worship may re-open for worship from 4th July, it has been agreed that live services across the Benefice will resume in August. There will also be virtual services to cater for those who do not yet feel able to venture out to church.

      With regard to live services there will be one service per day at one of the churches on the first four Sundays in August at 11.00am. Although there cannot be any singing, the organ will be played at various points. We are aware that there are many who have been shielding or in vulnerable groups who do not yet feel comfortable in going to public places. By the middle of August, we will have more of an idea as to what people might like and will be in a position to plan for services in September and beyond.

    • The dedicated section “Coronavirus” on this website (icon on left) provides all the up to date information that we receive and gives a platform to access worship details. There is information about local worship materials and services that are available on the BBC radio and television, and live-streaming services from the Oxford Diocese and the Church of England

    • CHURCH COLLECTIONS:-
      For fourteen weeks now there have been no church services and therefore no church collections. The cost of maintaining the churches however remains the same. Some parishioners have made arrangements to continue their giving to the church via alternative means, for which we are extremely grateful. If others would like to follow this lead, please go to the "Coronavirus Worship Details" page for details of how to set up payments to your parish.

    ​A prayer for all those affected by Coronavirus:-
    Keep us, good Lord,
    under the shadow of your mercy.
    Sustain and support the anxious,
    be with those who care for the sick,
    and lift up all who are brought low;
    that we may find comfort
    knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
    in Christ Jesus our Lord.
    Amen.
