'Many English churches have ancient wall paintings, but few as vivid as those at South Leigh. To experience a church like this is to connect with a huge swathe of lost history' Nick Mayhew Smith in Britain's Holiest Places (Bristol, Lifestyle Press 2011) p.79. But beautiful though our church is, it is not just an historic building but a vibrant, living and supportive Christian community that seeks to serve both the village of South Leigh and the wider Witney area. Welcome.
