Bicester Parish Church is dedicated to St Edburg. St. Edburg (or Eadburh or Edburga) was a Saxon and very likely the leader of a religious house - or houses - in Oxfordshire. She may have been the aunt of St. Osgyth, another Oxfordshire Saxon, and may also have been the sister of Wulfere, king of Mercia.

2004 marked our 900th anniversary and we celebrated with numerous special events throughout the year.

We are part of the Bicester Area Team Ministry.  Our Parish Vicar is the Revd Verena Breed who is also the Rector of the Bicester Benefice.

Disabled access in via the South door which has a ramp.  Toilet facilities, including disabled access, are available in church.
