Welcome to our vibrant Methodist Church in the heart of Oxford, the historic university city where  John and Charles Wesley began the Methodist movement. We are open-minded in our faith and deeply committed to following Jesus Christ, and building His kingdom. 

We are an inclusive church: everyone is welcome, whether you are already on the Christian journey or questioning where to begin. We are committed to 'Black Lives Matter'. We particularly welcome students and young people from everywhere to join our fellowship.  Ask us for details on our Contact form.  

Given the continuing national lockdown,  and our ongoing major building works, we regret that the church building remains closed for worship and activities for some time, but we are still very much alive!
