Church House Oxford is on a business park near Oxford airport.
Our address is: Church House Oxford, Langford Locks, Kidlington, Oxford OX5 1GF.
The switchboard number is 01865 208200.

While some staff have now returned to Church House, it remains closed to visitors at this time. Like other organisations, and recognising the need to make financial savings at this time, a number of staff are currently furloughed, see below; in those instances out of office messages will direct you to other staff. All other staff remain contactable by phone and email. Thank you for your understanding and patience during these difficult times.

If at all possible, do come by public transport (click the tab below for more information).

Parking is limited; you may be asked to park 15 minutes away.

We have covered bike racks and there is a shower available for cyclists.

We have a charger for electric cars. If you wish to use the charger, please enquire at Reception. There is a small fee to cover costs.

What do diocesan staff do?


Staff support the parishes in the Diocese of Oxford in a number of ways.

This includes providing financial, legal and administrative services, and advising on important areas such as children’s and youth work, social justice initiatives, safeguarding, communications, and supporting the 278 church schools in our diocese attended by more than 58,000 children and young people.

A large number of visitors come to our offices during the working week, evenings and weekends, for meetings and training events. If you are not sure where to turn for information or support, have a look at our staff list or please phone Reception on 01865 208200 and we will do our best to help.

COVID 19


Due to the current restrictions in place to combat Coronavirus many of our staff are working from home. We have a number of staff on furlough leave under the government’s Job Retention scheme.  Wherever possible their work is being covered by other colleagues. As we are working with a reduced staff team, we would ask for your patience and cooperation as we respond to your enquiries. For your information, those who have been furloughed have been encouraged to put an out of office on their email giving details of who to contact, however, please do check with the relevant Head of Department if this is not the case as they may advise you further.

The roles which are currently furloughed (as at 4th August 2020) are:

  • Curates Course Administrator
  • Receptionist (1)
  • Cafe Assistant
  • Architectural Assistant
