We seek to be open both to God and to others: our neighbours, our local community and the wider world. Whether you live here or are just visiting for a short while you are very welcome to join us in our services and other activities. As part of the Diocese of Oxford we share in the Diocesan vision to be a Christlike Church – Contemplative, Compassionate and Courageous.
There is no substitute for actually visiting our churches. You will find many open during the week, where you can find leaflets with information on their history, alternatively click through to get some more information.
St Agatha's, Brightwell-cum-Sotwell
Founded in 1153 on the site of an earlier church, St Agatha’s has been at the centre of Brightwell’s Christianity for almost 900 years. Some traces of the original building are still visible and a walk round the interior, using the printed guide available inside the church, will reveal many fascinating facts about the building itself and some of the people who have worshipped here over the centuries from the Normans to the present day. St Agatha’s remains as ever, at the heart of the village, ready to welcome anyone who seeks comfort within its walls.
In September 2020 Wallingford was awarded a Silver Eco Church Award. We look forward to continuing our Eco Church work and focusing on how we can use our buildings and land to care for God’s creation even more. We hope this will help us go for gold.
Many people keep the churches going behind the scenes. Here are a few faces to look out for as good first point of contact.
