Church of England Diocese of Oxford Great Faringdon

About Us

Our services are marked by diversity of style, ranging from lay-led open prayer to BCP communion.

There is a strong ecumenical tradition in Faringdon. Together the united churches run a thriving Family Centre and Fair Trade and Christian bookshop. We also share services and run a joint Holiday Bible Club (The Wave) each summer. We have a link mission partner in South Sudan.

The church itself is set in the heart of a small market town in the Vale of the White Horse. The building dates from the thirteenth century, and has experienced an exciting history which includes the destruction of the spire during the Civil War.

The Simeons Trust has been patron since the 1840s. We are the only Anglican church and the parish comprises the entire town.

The Reverend Doctor Stephen Bellamy became our vicar on 28 July 2016.

The church administrator works Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: 10 a.m. - 12 noon and can be contacted on [email protected] or on 01367 244 901
