The Church is here for everyone. The relationship between Church and state in this country means that every one of the 2.2 million or so people who live in our area has a parish church. So even if you are not a regular churchgoer, if you live within the Diocese of Oxford, welcome. The Church is there for you. Many people turn to the Church at significant milestones in their life. Whether that is a happy event – such as a wedding or the birth of a child – or a sad one such as the death of a loved friend or family member, we’re here to help.
Are you planning to get married? Congratulations! Your local church will be delighted to make you welcome…
Your child is precious to you and precious to God. Many parents want to mark the birth of a child with a special service of celebration.
A funeral is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God’s keeping.
