Church of England Diocese of Oxford Witney

St. John the Baptist

Please note that there will not be a Eucharist Service on Sunday 12 December.  Please see details for St Mary the Virgin Witney for alternative services.


Curbridge lies to the south-west of Witney, population about 425, and is separated from Witney by the A40 by-pass. It is an agricultural area, with farms both in and around the village. There is a pub, a Skoda garage and a children’s playground, but no shop. 

The Church building a is small (seats 70), attractive Arts and Crafts building, set in an open churchyard, well cared for and valued by the village community. There is a small regular congregation of 12-18, but up to 40 for special occasions like evening services for Harvest festival and Carol Service. It is well supported by Friends of Curbridge Church who fund-raise for the building and support village community life. Several residential developments, large and small, are being built close to the village providing us with the opportunity to grow our congregation.

The parish of Witney is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Oxford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
