Our Anglican ministry team currently comprises:
The team are assisted by two retired colleagues, the Revd Canon John Whitwell and the Revd Stella Fairbairn, who, although not licensed to the parish, belong to the Anglican congregation and have permission to officiate.
The Parochial Church Council senses that we are at a bit of a crossroads. The Diocese of Oxford is developing a Common Vision, the challenges and opportunities in Banbury itself, the revitalised relationship with our Primary School and a new Vicar meant this was a good time to take stock.
What does it mean to be a Christ-like church? What does it mean to be contemplative, compassionate and courageous church in Banbury today? How do we steward an historic building in such a way that it is not a burden but a viable and sustainable asset for the church and the town?
We want to enable everyone to hear the gospel message in a language which they can understand and experience it in a way which is relevant to them.
