St Mary and St John, Oxford

We are an Anglican church in the Liberal Catholic tradition at the heart of Oxford's busy Cowley road. Sunday Eucharist is at 10.45am.We welcome believers, doubters and those who are searching. We believe in a church which is inclusive, questioning and on a journey. We are a member of Inclusive Church, and hold to its statement of belief: óìWe believe in inclusive Church - church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality.óFounded in 1875, St Mary and St John began as part of the heady days of the Oxford movement, and with it reclaimed Sacramental Liturgy, offered retreats and spiritual formation to clergy and laity alike, and reached out - through slum-priests and laity - to support the poor and destitute in East Oxford as well as far-off lands.We welcome students every year to be a part of our congregation and church life. Our student and young adults group 'Second Sunday' is always open to welcoming new members.
