About Us

One of the undiscovered treasures of Oxfordshire, All Saints, Goosey was originally a chapel linked to Abingdon Abbey. It is believed to date from the 13th century, and to have been the chapel used by the monks who kept the abbey's geese, on 'goose' island. Tucked away in the corner of the green, it now serves the hamlet of Goosey, with its population of about 100.
We have one evening service a month and special celebrations at Easter, Harvest and Christmas.

One church, three buildings. We are a Church of England, Christian community based in three rural and historic churches in the Parish of Stanford in the Vale with Goosey and Hatford (within the Diocese of Oxford). We welcome people from a variety of different Christian backgrounds. We seek to reach out and to include everyone within our parish, whether you already count yourself as a Christian or are just looking. We offer a wide variety of Sunday services across our three buildings, that range from a Holy Communion service (St Denys, Stanford in the Vale); an interactive service for young families (St Denys, Stanford in the Vale); a more reflective Evening Service (All Saints, Goosey) and a traditional Evensong Service (St George, Hatford).
