  • Nurturing faith, bringing hope and sharing love


    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:

    1. Reaching out to our existing communities and the huge influx of new residents.

    2. Building a new community of faith within the Milton Heights development.

    3. Re-invigorating our existing traditional churches to support mission and outreach.

    4. Enabling outreach within our Schools to flourish and grow.

    5. 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.
