St John the Baptist

As you know, our churches are not fully open as a result of the Coronavirus lockdown. However, the information below gives you a flavour of each church and what our services are like when we are able to meet as normal. In the meantime, you’ll have seen from our home page that we are holding virtual services at the moment, so please feel free to join us by following the instructions on that page. Details of when the church is open for private prayer or services are also available on the home page.

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.
