Church of England Parish of Hanborough

Welcome to the Hanborough Parish Website

A Warm Welcome!

Welcome to our website and we hope you find what you are looking for. Service times for each of our three congregations are included on this website (at the foot of this page) as are the contact details of our Parish Priest, David Tyler.

We would love to see you at one of our services.

The Parish

The Parish of Hanborough lies approximately 6 miles north-west of Oxford, mid way between the market towns of Woodstock and Witney. This Church of England Parish encompasses two churches: Christ Church in Long Hanborough and St Peter and St Paul in Church Hanborough. 

St Peter and St Paul's worship is traditionally Anglican, while Christ Church meets in the local Primary School, Manor School for its morning service, and offers a relaxed informal service including a Sunday School called Focus and Wayfarers and a creche for under 3s. Evening Services are held in Christ Church.

The Parish is part of the Benefice of Hanborough and Freeland which includes St Mary's Church. The Parish is within the Oxford Diocese and the Benefice sits within the Woodstock Deanery.

Our Community

Hanborough is a village of about 2,500 people. We have a local Church of England Primary School with about 200 children and we are well served by varied local shops, a GPs surgery, many local clubs and societies. In addition to the two Anglican churches in Hanborough there is also a Methodist Church.

Our Aim

Our aim is to bring the love and truth of God to our community and to work with other local churches to do so.
