Church of England Diocese of Oxford Banbury St. Hugh


Prayer lies at the very heart of who we are as community. We regularly pray for our parish, street by street, for our town and the needs of our world.

We also meet to pray, over Zoom, on a Thursday evening and you are welcome to join us. Just email the Vicar Anita Smith

The prayer for this week

Almighty God,

give us grace to cast away the works of darkness

and to put on the armour of light,

now in the time of this mortal life,

in which your Son Jesus Christ came to us in great humility;

that on the last day,

when he shall come again in his glorious majesty

to judge the living and the dead,

we may rise to the life immortal;

through him who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
