Welcome from the Vicar, the Rev’d Dr Emma Pennington.

Canon May 2015 062Welcome and thank you for visiting the website for the benefice of Garsington, Cuddesdon and Horspath.  We are three vibrant and faithful Christian communities who gather to worship in the beautiful medieval churches of the villages of Horspath, Cuddesdon and Garsington, which nestle in the hills just to the east of Oxford.  As part of the Oxford Diocese we serve the people of the three villages; offering weekly acts of worship, opportunities to learn about the Christian faith, pastoral care, preservation of our joint heritage, as well as organising community events such as fetes, lunch clubs and coffee mornings.

The times of our Sunday morning services are: 9.30 am in Garsington and Cuddesdon and 11.00 am in Horspath.  On the first Sunday every month we come together for our Benefice service at 10 am which alternates amongst the three churches.  For services this coming week please see above.

All three churches are open during daylight hours and you are very welcome to spend some time in prayer or simply enjoy their sacred peace and historic beauty.  Please do sign our visitors’ book and leave a prayer request, if you wish.

We hope you will find the information you need in the following pages and look forward to welcoming you to your churches.
