About Us

St Mary's is Witney's parish church, the home of services for Witney Feast, Remembrance Day and the Mayor's Carol Service at Christmas. Many people come here for weddings, christenings and funerals. Many more come for concerts and other events throughout the year. It is one of the churches of the Parish of Witney, and you can find more information about events and church life by following the link.

We are an inclusive church embracing a hospitable Christianity, committed to living our lives in the love, joy and hope of the risen Christ. We are here to worship God and to help each other to grow in faith. If you would like to come along or get in touch with us, we will be delighted to welcome you.   

The church building of St Mary's is huge and very old, one of the oldest buildings in Witney and one of the biggest in West Oxfordshire. Its origins go back to Norman times but the present building is mostly 13th century and was dedicated in 1243. Standing on Church Green near the town centre, and with its spire a landmark for miles around, it is hard to miss.
