Church of England Diocese of Oxford Wantage

About Us

Welcome to the Parish of Wantage.

We are a Church of England parish serving the people of our wonderful market town in Oxfordshire.

Standing within the Catholic tradition of the Church of England we offer our worship to God in the beauty of holiness as we seek to follow and serve Jesus Christ in our daily lives. We look forward to welcoming you to an event or service soon.

We have two churches within the parish: the imposing medieval Parish Church of SS. Peter and Paul in the centre of town and the Edwardian daughter church of Holy Trinity, Charlton.

The parish church is an imposing and ancient building just off the market place in Wantage. Dean Butler, the illustrious Victorian reformer, was our most famous vicar of the past, and John Betjeman worshipped here.
