St Ebbes

St Ebbe's in Headington is a friendly, evangelical Anglican church family, part of St Ebbe's Church in Oxford.

St Ebbe's singingThree congregations of St Ebbe's Church meet in Headington at 10.30 a.m., 3.30 p.m. and 7.00 p.m. in Lime Walk.  They are led by Al Horn, under the overall leadership of the Rector of St Ebbe's, Vaughan Roberts.  A range of midweek activities, some intended primarily for Christians and others for enquirers, take place in addition to the three Sunday services.

Central to each Sunday service is a reading and a 20-30 minute talk from the Bible.  There is also a lively mixture of traditional hymns, modern songs and times of prayer.  Tea and coffee are served after the 10.30 and 7.00, and children's tea after the 3.30 service. Communion is held approximately every 5-6 weeks.

A large cross-section of the local community attends, including families (especially at 10.30 and 3.30), Brookes students, teachers, medics, retired folk and many others.  Visitors are always extremely welcome.
