University Church of St Mary the Virgin

The University Church of St Mary the Virgin is a vibrant, welcoming, and inclusive church in the liberal catholic tradition. Standing in the very centre of Oxford, it is the spiritual heart of the oldest university in Britain. With dignified liturgy and beautiful music, it has been a place of Christian worship for over seven hundred years. Today, we strive to be a community of faithful Christian witness and intelligent debate, unafraid to engage with the modern world.
