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.  As of July 2013, we are in a period of Interregnum following the retirement of our Team Rector, the Revd Canon Theresa Scott.

Disabled access in via the South door which has a ramp.  Toilet facilities, including disabled access, are currently only available in our Church Hall which is about 50m away behind the church.  We hope to be able to provide better access and toilet facilities in church by 2014, as part of the reordering project which we are undertaking in stages.
