St Hugh's Banbury

Welcome to St Hugh’s Banbury

St Hugh’s is a warm and friendly church community in which everyone is welcome. We have a 9:30 a.m. Communion Service each Sunday and on the first Sunday of each month we have a very informal all age Café Service which starts from 10:45. Our building is wonderfully user friendly. It is used by community groups throughout the week and has good disabled access. If you want to see more of what we are up to do follow us on Facebook or check the events tag.

St Hugh's and Covid-19

We are following the latest advice from Public Health England and the Church of England with regard to coronavirus. All activities have been suspended, and our usual pattern of Sunday worship and other mid-week gatherings are on hold. In line with Government instructions, the church has now closed for the time being.. however, we will continue to be praying for our community at this very difficult time. If you would like us to pray for you or someone you are concerned for, please phone Anita on 01295 369021.  

Keep us, good Lord,

under the shadow of your mercy

in this time of uncertainty and distress.

Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,

and lift up all who are brought low;

that we may rejoice in your comfort

knowing that nothing can separate us from your love

in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Join us on line!

Each Thursday evening we are meeting together over Zoom for a time to connect with each other and share in a short (20 minute) service together. If you would like to join us please contact Anita on [email protected] and she will send you the link
