Seven Churches in South Oxfordshire


Important Information:

We are sorry that all churches in the Team Ministry are closed for all services due to the pandemic. This includes Sunday Worship, funerals, baptisms and weddings. Funeral services are currently only available as an open air graveside service. This situation is kept under review, and decisions to reopen for services will be taken when each Church Council and the clergy staff are content that it is safe to do so.

The following churches in the Team are open for Private Prayer: 

Whitchurch on Thames, St Mary. Sundays 09.00 until 13.00  and Wednesdays 13.00 until 16.00

Checkendon St Peter & St Paul: Wednesdays and Sundays 9.00-16.00

Apart from the churches above there continues to be NO PUBLIC ACCESS to the other church buildings of the Team, not even by arrangement. Only the clergy, and designated lay people, are permitted entry.  Churchyards, however, are open for visitors. Please respect social distancing (2m) regulations and wear a face covering inside a church building.

The clergy staff team remain on duty and available for you to call or email. Sunday worshp and midweek worship options are available online.

Midweek Worship

There are several quiet evening service options now available for you midweek. These are a lovely chance to pray and reflect; Compline is a much loved service in the anglican tradition, arising from the monastic offices. It is a short service of about fifteen minutes for the very end of a day when we turn to rest and commit ourselves into the hand of God for the night hours. Everyone is very welcome – just “join meeting” on zoom at the appointed hour, and enter the relevant numbers.
