Our purpose is to serve God and the people of Headington.

We do this by providing a beautiful and peaceful place where God is worshipped, and his presence felt, through the Sunday services, music, and artwork such as stained glass windows. This is a place of worship, Christian teaching, and prayer.

As well as public worship Sunday by Sunday, the church and our ministry is available for special events: baptism, marriage and funerals.

In addition, through our church hall, meeting rooms and kitchen in the separate All Saints Church House we provide a space for all manner of community activities, such as playgroups, Brownies and Guides, judo classes, pilates, yoga, political party committee meetings, wedding reception parties and the like. (Contact Rob Poulton on Oxf 450891)

After a some lovely carol services over Christmas, our programme of services returns to normal for the New Year. It would be lovely to see you!

As we approach Lent, as well as the normal services, there will be a said evensong at 2.30 each Thursday, with a short meditation on a lentern theme. A highlight of our Lent/Easter observations will be the three hour Good Friday service, which will be led by Bishop Colin Fletcher OBE, bishop of Dorchester, and acting bishop of Oxford. This will begin at 12.00 noon. If you cannot stay for the whole three hours, you are welcome to come and go during the service - being careful to choose a moment when Bishop Colin is not speaking.
