About Worship

Worship is at the heart of all that we do. Our regular Sunday worship is at 10.00am, though occasionally there are services at other times.

As is traditional in Methodism, our services are led by a variety of preachers, both lay and ordained, mostly from the Oxford Circuit, though occasionally from further afield. This means we have the chance to experience a variety of approaches and ideas.  Some services will feel traditional and others innovative.  Once a month we celebrate Holy Communion together and once a quarter we gather more informally for Cafe style worship.

We aim to worship in ways that include everyone and connect to our community and the world.  

Face-to-Face Worship

All are welcome to our regular Sunday Worship, to our Messy Church, which meets on the second Saturday of each month, and to our Minecraft Church, which meets on the fourth Sunday of the month.
