St John the Baptist

Curbridge lies to the south-west of Witney, population about 425, and is separated from Witney by the A40 by-pass. It is an agricultural area, with farms both in and around the village. There is a pub, a Skoda garage and a children’s playground, but no shop. 

The Church building a is small (seats 70), attractive Arts and Crafts building, set in an open churchyard, well cared for and valued by the village community. There is a small regular congregation of 12-18, but up to 40 for special occasions like evening services for Harvest festival and Carol Service. It is well supported by Friends of Curbridge Church who fund-raise for the building and support village community life. Several residential developments, large and small, are due to be built close to the village in the near future.

Raise the roof

An opportunity to invest in a major Witney landmark

Severe winter frosts have destroyed the limestone slates on St Mary’s Roof. We need to replace them before winter sets in. Local Witney people have already sponsored 2,200 slates. Only 1,800 slates to go!!

Please Sponsor a Slate for £10. Your civic landmark church needs you!

Praying for victims of terror



'In the midst of life we are in death.'

Lord, in a place of pleasure, terror struck, in a place of life, death came. Hold us in our shock and grief, comfort the distressed, heal the injured, calm the anxious, reunite the separated, console the bereaved, and give rest and everlasting peace to those who have died, for your love never fails and through the darkness your light always shines. Amen.

Our stewardship enables us to fulfil God's call and share in God's mission

The Church is the new creation, it is life and joy, it is the sacramental fellowship in which we share the ultimate purpose of God, made real for us now in our hearing the Word and sharing the Sacrament.
Rowan Williams
