Holy Trinity

Holy Trinity is in the conservation area of Woodgreen, next to a children’s play area and close to the pub. The interior of the church is of simple design and has 100 comfortable chairs making it a useful flexible space.

Following an inspection which found the floor in the nave to be failing, a major fund raising campaign was formally launched in April 2013. Events were well supported by the whole congregation, our friends and our neighbours.  Money was given to us from many different sources and we had a really good time. We also became more aware of the goodwill of our neighbours and are keen to nurture this in the future.

Work on the new floor began in August 2014 and was completed by November of the same year.  As part of the project the sound system and lighting will also be renewed.  Our refreshed building has become a reality thus enabling us to work more effectively on our mission. We are open to fresh ideas.

Our services are supported by a talented choir, and we have a wide range of services, including a traditional Nine Lessons and Carols in the week before Christmas and a quiet and medative "Tenebrae service" on the evening of Good Friday.  The Easter garden is now arranged in the porch so that it can be more easily seen and our Christmas tree is positioned outside so that it is a sign to the whole community of our active presence.

Many baptisms, weddings and funerals take place in Holy Trinity church, and everyone is welcome at all of our services.

An opportunity to invest in a major Witney landmark

Severe winter frosts have destroyed the limestone slates on St Mary’s Roof. We need to replace them before winter sets in. Local Witney people have already sponsored 2,200 slates. Only 1,800 slates to go!!

Please Sponsor a Slate for £10. Your civic landmark church needs you!

Praying for victims of terror



'In the midst of life we are in death.'

Lord, in a place of pleasure, terror struck, in a place of life, death came. Hold us in our shock and grief, comfort the distressed, heal the injured, calm the anxious, reunite the separated, console the bereaved, and give rest and everlasting peace to those who have died, for your love never fails and through the darkness your light always shines. Amen.

Our stewardship enables us to fulfil God's call and share in God's mission

The Church is the new creation, it is life and joy, it is the sacramental fellowship in which we share the ultimate purpose of God, made real for us now in our hearing the Word and sharing the Sacrament.

Oxford Diocese

Seven days a week, more than 50,000 Anglican disciples are dispersed across the Diocese of Oxford and the world, serving God in a huge variety of contexts and making a difference in the world. Together as a Diocese we support an enormous range of voluntary projects serving the local community often in partnership with others: these include food banks, children’s centres, support for the homeless and refugees, community groups, parent and toddler groups and many more. Over a thousand church buildings and church schools are centres of life and hospitality in their communities. There are around a hundred stipendiary chaplains working across the Diocese in prisons, hospitals, the police, universities and schools. We have three formal overseas links with Kimberley and Kuruman (South Africa), with Växjö (Sweden) and with Nandyal (India) and many other links at parish level.
