About Us

St Mary the Virgin is the parish church in Longcot in the Shrivenham & Ashbury Benefice. The ecclesiastical parish includes the village of Fernham and its chapel of ease (St John the Evangelist).

The Ministry Team consists of the Vicar, Rev'd Norma Fergusson, who lives in Shrivenham and a House for Duty Priest/Associate Vicar (currently vacant) who lives in Ashbury, a Licensed Lay Minister, retired clergy, and an Authorised Minister. There are other lay members who help lead Family Worship and Morning Prayer.
