About St Andrew’s












Coffee and chat after the Sunday service


We are a friendly church on the western edge of Oxford. We meet on Sundays to worship God together, and at other times to help our community in practical ways, to learn more about our faith and to share it with others.

We have coffee, tea and biscuits after the service. Once a month on the third Sunday we have a longer coffee time, ‘Sunday Special’, usually with cake (and a healthier alternative!) on offer.

St Andrew’s Church has been part of the Dean Court community since the 1950s, when Pinnocks Way was built; services were held in the community centre. Local people joined together to put up the present wooden church in 1961. It is part of Cumnor Church of England parish along with St Michael’s, Cumnor and St Mary’s, Farmoor.  Our vicar is Revd Jonathan Widdess, who came in early March 2017.

Next door to the main church building we have the smaller St Andrew’s Centre (STAC), used primarily for children’s and young people’s activities. There is also the Orchard games area, opened in 2012 by Olympic gold medallist Lily van den Broeke, which is open all the time for community use, and can also be hired.

We are n the middle of plans to rebuild the 1960s wooden church. Find out more.
