A warm welcome awaits you at services in St.Agatha's, Brightwell-cum-Sotwell, one of six churches in the Wallingford team benefice. Other activities include an active choir, bell-ringing, coffee on Wednesday mornings and occasional concerts and recitals. The church is generally open to visitors during the day.

Sunday services commence generally at 9.30 am with Parish Communion every Sunday except for a more informal Family Service (non-eucharistic) on the second Sunday which begins at the later time of 10.00am.  Tea and coffee are served after the Sunday services.

There is a quarterly Team service in one or other of the three parishes in the benefice.

A box near the North door in St.Agatha's is provided for Food Bank gifts of tinned or packeted food.
