Acting Bishop of Oxford

The Bishop of Dorchester, the Rt Revd Colin Fletcher

Welcome to our diocesan website. You’ll find there’s a great deal of ‘nuts and bolts’ information on this site for clergy, lay ministers and all those other people involved in the vital day-to-day running of our churches – all 815 of them! There are also useful sections on important matters such as getting married in church, having your child christened or organising a funeral and also an introduction to the Christian faith. But whatever you are looking for, I hope you’ll also get a feel of the rich life of our communities and some of the people who make them up. If you are new to church or don’t know where to start, I hope you’ll take a look round. You can find out more about the Christian faith.  Then get in touch. It’s your Church as much as mine.
