Welcome to our Parish

Welcome to the Anglican Parish of Kidlington with Hampton Poyle, in the Diocese of Oxford, and welcome to our three churches.

Kidlington is one of the largest villages in England. Although only six miles north of Oxford, parishioners are proud of our community life and our independence from the city. The village is served by two churches: the mediaeval Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, at the eastern side; and The Church of St John the Baptist at the southern end of the village.

Separated from Kidlington by the meadows of the River Cherwell is Hampton Poyle, a small hamlet of about 150 served by The Church of St Mary the Virgin, Hampton Poyle.

Our churches were built for all in the community, and have been used day in and day out for over 700 years. The doors of St Mary's Kidlington and St Mary's Hampton Poyle are open each day and you are welcome to come in and enjoy the ancient spaces. There are many interesting things to see. The chapel at St John's is open each weekday morning for quiet prayer.

Do join us at any of our services, or use the quiet spaces to sit, think, pray, light a candle, and listen for God; or even shout at him!
