Suspension of All Services In Our Parish Churches (Except Funerals & Urgent Weddings) It is with a heavy heart that the PCC have taken the decision to suspend all communal acts of worship in our Parish from Sunday 10 January initially for a period of one calendar month. The PCC will continue to review this decision in the light of further information and direction. The PCC is aware that this decision will cause sadness and disappointment for some; the ministry team encourage you to contact them if you, or anyone you are concerned for, requires pastoral support at this most difficult time. A member of the ministry team will always be available to respond to urgent requests for assistance and to ensure that you receive one form of our weekly service transmission. Phil Sutton will act as coordinator if your minister is not available. Tel: 07507378737 or 01235 526114
The Rev'd Phil Sutton (07507378737) firstname.lastname@example.org

The weekly online worship will continue and Drayton, Milton, Steventon and Sutton Courtenay churches
remain open during daylight hours for private individual prayer.

Nurturing faith, bringing hope and sharing love
OUR VISION AND MISSION
Our vision is to be a living Christian presence at the heart of our communities nurturing faith, bringing hope and sharing love.
Our five mission priorities are:
Reaching out to our existing communities and the huge influx of new residents.
Building a new community of faith within the Milton Heights development.
Re-invigorating our existing traditional churches to support mission and outreach.
Enabling outreach within our Schools to flourish and grow.
Developing a spirit of generosity and giving, where all the churches support mission where it is most needed.
The Parish is situated between Abingdon and Didcot with boundaries abutting both towns. There are considerable numbers of professional people in the area, with Oxford University, Oxford Brookes University, Harwell, Culham, Didcot Power Station and Milton Park Enterprise Zone all in the locality. The easy access to Didcot Parkway Station means that an increasing number of villagers commute to London, Oxford, Reading, Swindon and beyond.
The five churches are broadly middle-of-the-road, but each village retains its individual identity and church tradition. All our churches are kept open during daylight hours.
