St. John the Evangelist, Hailey

Hailey is a village and civil parish north of Witney. The village comprises three neighbourhoods: Middletown on the main road; Poffley End on the minor road to Ramsden, and Delly End on Whiting’s and Wood Lanes. Hailey has a church – St John’s; a very popular and busy C of E Primary School; Village Hall; several farms; and a hairdresser, but it no longer has a shop. It is a lively village, with a summer festival and lots of activities throughout the year.

Hailey Church, is a Victorian building completed in 1869, but the church itself reaches out into the community well beyond its’ walls. Together with the school, pub, community woodland, and village hall, it is at the centre of village activity. Sunday services attract a steady, enthusiastic, mature congregation of over 30. We have a planned series of special services across the year, most of which are family focussed, and include the Festival Service in June, the Peace Service in July and a Pet service in the autumn. Compline services, lay led, are held in Advent and Lent, and Evensong is held on the first Sunday of the month.

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.
