St Mary's Hampton Poyle: by Owen (aged 10)


Our parish lies some six miles north of Oxford. We are served by three churches: the mediaeval Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin and the Church of St John the Baptist in Kidlington itself, and, across the meadows of the River Cherwell, by another ancient church of St Mary the Virgin in Hampton Poyle.

Our churches are open for part of the day for individual private prayer, but are not open for services. Please join with us in our daily prayer and services relayed by video.

Our Churches

Our churches were built for all in the community, and have been used day in and day out for close to 800 years. After a period of closure, our churches are open for part of the day for individual private prayer, but are not yet holding services. But please join with us in our daily prayer and services relayed by video.
