Welcome to Cowley St John – a friendly and open-minded community in the heart of East Oxford.

We are currently not able to meet for public worship due to Covid-19. We are offering worship online throughout the week. Sign up to our E-Bulletin for up-to-date information by email.

    With the closure of churches in our parish we wait with lots of other groups and organisations in our community who have had to close their doors in order to protect the vulnerable.  Our Online worship is difficult for some to access but just because we aren’t meeting doesn’t mean we stop being praying members of the church community bound by our love and concern for each other. 

Please be assured of our prayers and do get in touch if you would like a chat. 

Fr.Philip Ritchie
