Schools

We are passionate about our relationship with and ministry to the primary and secondary schools across Witney and the surrounding villages.

We offer weekly online Collective Worship videos for primary schools. You can watch them on our YouTube Channel.  Our newest contributions are listed first.

Young Disciples

Our youth group for secondary school students is known as the Young Disciples. We gather online or in person for fellowship, fun, and prayer.

If you are interested in joining the Young Disciples, please get in touch with rebecca@witneyparish.org.uk
