Parish of Kidlington with Hampton Poyle

Parish of Kidlington
with Hampton Poyle


Welcome


Welcome to the Anglican Parish of Kidlington with Hampton Poyle, in the Diocese of Oxford.

Kidlington is one of the largest villages in England. Although only six miles north of Oxford, parishioners are proud of our community life and our independence from the city. The village is served by two churches: the mediaeval Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, at the eastern side; and The Church of St John the Baptist at the southern end. Separated from Kidlington by the meadows of the River Cherwell is Hampton Poyle, a hamlet served by another church dedicated to St Mary the Virgin.

Service Times


Coming Up


World Day of Prayer
All are invited to share in a special service to celebrate the World Day of Prayer at St John's Church in Kidlington on Friday 1st March, 7.00pm. WDP is an international and ecumenical day of prayer. This year the service was written by women in Slovenia with the theme of Come - Everything is Ready! You are warmly invited to this service. There will be refreshments after the service. We look forward to seeing you there.

Our Churches


... were built for all in the community, and have been used day in and day out for close to 800 years. The doors of the two St Mary's are open each day and you are welcome to come in and enjoy the ancient spaces. There are many interesting things to see. The chapel at St John's is open each weekday morning for quiet prayer. Use the quiet spaces to sit, think, pray, light a candle, and listen for God — or join us at any of our services.


The Hub


Community Hub
The Hub runs and hosts child and carer groups, mostly at St John's in the Broadway, but also in St Mary's in Church St.
