Welcome to this website for St Barnabas Church, Oxford.

St Barnabas' is the parish church of Jericho, Oxford, (Church of England), and has served this community since it was founded in 1869. It has a long and colourful story, right through to the present day, and is engaged in many different ways with local life. The church bell is rung three times a day most days, as a call to prayer and to remind the people of Jericho of the story of God's love for them.

We are building a new website at the moment (January 2014) but the best way to find out more is to come and join us one sunday at the Parish Mass, at 10.30am. This usually finishes at 11.45am, and is followed by coffee. There is a rich liturgical and musical tradition in the parish, and great care is taken over offering the best that we have to give in our worship. There is a warm welcome for all. There are flourishing Sunday Schools for children aged 0-13 years, and our children regularly take a leading role in the worship.

For service times and contact details etc. see the weekly bulletin which can be found through the link on the right of this page.

With my best wishes

Fr Jonathan Beswick, Parish Priest

ST BARNABAS OXFORD by John Betjeman

How long was the peril, how breathless the day,
In topaz and beryl, the sun dies away,
His rays lying static at quarter to six
On polychromatical lacing of bricks.
Good Lord, as the angelus floats down the road
Byzantine St Barnabas, be Thine Abode.

Where once the fritillaries hung in the grass
A baldachin pillar is guarding the Mass.
Farewell to blue meadows we loved not enough,
And elms in whose shadows were Glanville and Clough
Not poets but clergymen hastened to meet
Thy redden’d remorselessness, Cardigan Street.
