Welcome to St Mary’s, the historic parish church of Banbury, England.

You can find our service times here

We’re launching a new website this spring (2019). In the meantime we apologise if the information you’re looking for is missing or out of date – please feel free to contact the church via social media or by telephone / email.

We’re a growing community of people, on an exciting adventure as we seek to reshape ourselves to more intentionally live lives of radical love – as seen in the life of Jesus Christ – humbly and dependent on God’s empowering presence.

We also have an amazing building – it’s the largest 18th century parish church.  The church has a number of historic treasures as well as a visual feast of a Byzantine basilica style interior.

In our sacred texts, contained in the Bible, we discover everyone is created in the image of God and therefore everyone is of infinite worth. We seek to become totally inclusive and to remove all barriers to church life so that everyone has the chance to reach their full God-given potential – regardless of age, gender, race, beliefs, sexuality, abilities or wealth.
