Welcome to the Four Parishes website. This is in the early days of construction and we will be adding more information as soon as possible, for example, about weddings, baptisms and funerals.

 

If you have any feedback at the current time, please use the Contact page to contact us.

Our Benefice comprises four rural parishes in four picturesque rural villages a few miles to the north-east of the city of Oxford.

Church Services

March 2021

Currently our churches are closed for services, with the exception of funerals, due to the country being in Lockdown 3, protecting ourselves and the strain on the NHS.  For some this has been welcome, as it means we can worship together safely from our homes. For others, it has been hard, meaning further isolation during what is already a very difficult time. However, the safety of all, and especially the vulnerable, from this dreadful virus, has been our priority.  Everyone is welcome to attend our online services.  Please contact us if you would like an invitation.   Edited videos of some of our past services can be viewed here.

 

For the purposes of this month's rota, we have assumed everything remains online. However, please do look out for announcements, through emails from Anthea, and on this website, for any changes, depending on what is safe, allowed, and possible.

 

All churches in the Benefice are open for private prayer on Sundays and Wednesdays from 10am (9am in Horton-cum-Studley) to 4pm
