Welcome from The Team Rector, Canon Toby Wright

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Benefice of Witney. The Rev'd Toby Wright – Team Rector since 2009 We are an inclusive church embracing a hospitable Christianity. We are five Church of England churches, some large and some small, serving the town of Witney and the villages round about. We believe the church is called to be a community of mercy and kindness. We look forward to welcoming you to an event or service soon.

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.
Rowan Williams
