This will mean an adjustment to the arrival times for volunteers - please could you arrive by 9.30am if you are helping with set-up, and 12.15pm if you are helping during the afternoon. We will still finish at 5pm as planned.

Please do let us know asap if this will be a problem. You can contact the Funday Administrator, Peter Hart by email or leave a message on 01865-763572.

If it's the summer then the Headington Funday must be happening soon!  We are delighted to offer the 13th Headington Funday in Bury Knowle Park from 2-5pm, all completely free, as the churches' gift to the community. 

This year's offering includes the favourites: BBQ & Tea Tent, balloon modelling, face painting, bouncy castle as well as a giant inflatable obstacle course, tug-of-war, cakes, bang-a-nail, live music, juggling, giant games & lots more!

Our hard working team is entering the final phase of preparation and we look forward to welcoming all our visitors, new and returning, to our annual afternoon of fun in the sun.  Well, we are also praying that the weather holds and you can join us in prayer at an evening devoted to prayer for the Funday, on Friday 29th June, 7.30pm at Cornerstone Church (2 Quarry High Street, Headington, OX3 8JT). If you can come along, even for a short while, that would be fantastic.

We also welcome volunteers to help us on the day with the set up, stall management, and take down. If you can offer any time to help with this, then the Rev. Paul Clarke would love to hear from you. You can email or call 01865-763572 or sign up online here.

If you would like to help us advertise the event by putting up a poster at your place of work, worship, or community organisation, you can download one from here.

Music and Ministry Weekend in Upper Heyford

posted 12 May 2018, 12:14 by CTH Webmaster   [ updated 15 Jun 2018, 10:08 ]

Music and Ministry Weekend in Upper Heyford, 25 & 26 May.

If you would like some spiritual refreshment at the start of the late May Bank Holiday, then Heyford Park Chapel (part of the Cherwell Valley Benefice, Diocese of Oxford) invites you to hear the ministry of Marilyn Baker and Tracy Williamson

Marilyn Baker & Tracy Williamson present a dynamic ministry of music, teaching and prayer, whose focus is always to bring people into the healing and empowering presence of God. As well as evangelistic and encouraging concerts, they participate in Christian festivals, church weekends and services.

Marilyn and Tracy’s deep longing for people to find the love of Jesus also takes them to smaller places: hospitals, homes for the elderly or disabled, prisons, schools and workplaces. Since 2000 Marilyn and Tracy have been leading their own conferences at different venues across the country. Each with its own theme, these events have proved to be wonderful times of blessing, healing and release for all.

In the early 1980’s Marilyn released albums which drew people into God’s healing presence. Through her concerts, Marilyn, who has been blind almost from birth, soon realised the tremendous potential to touch peoples’ lives through word and music.

In 1986 Marilyn was joined by Tracy, whose gifts in speaking and prophecy enriched the music with a new dimension. Marilyn’s CDs and Tracy’s books have enabled them to reach a wider audience. What is so amazing is that Tracy is profoundly deaf and partially sighted and yet together, Tracy and Marilyn have been instrumental in bringing healing and wholeness to many people.

Geoff Price, Vicar at Cherwell Benefice, writes "We are very privileged to have Marilyn and Tracy coming to share an evening with us on Friday 25th May at 7.15pm. Please bring other people, especially those who don’t usually go to Church, for this very special evening. Coffee & tea will be provided.

On Saturday 26th May they will also be leading a Rest & Renewal Day from 10am to 3.30pm. This will be a very good day involving their lovely music and teaching and space for each person to be refreshed by God. Drinks are provided all day and everyone should bring a packed lunch

Both events will be held at Heyford Park Chapel, 572, Brice Road, Upper Heyford, OX25 5TE

Donations are welcome on the day for each event, but please book places by contacting Geoff & Hope Price on 0779 555 4102 or email:

Christianity in 10 Art Objects

On Wednesday 16 May Fr Tim Howles, curate at St Andrew’s church, Headington will lead a presentation and discussion evening entitled “Christianity in 10 Art Objects”. Not quite “A History of the World” and not quite “100 Objects”, but then it’s only one evening! Come to the church for drinks and nibbles at 7.30pm, ready for an 8.00pm start. We will be finished by 9.15pm. 

Fr Tim will attempt to trace something of the story of Christianity in 10 different art objects, beginning with an ice-age sculpture and concluding with a recent installation by Tracey Emin in Liverpool Cathedral, with plenty in between! This event is designed to be accessible and open to all. Everyone is welcome to attend, whatever your level of interest in art.

Please RSVP to Fr Tim on so we can plan for numbers – or just come on the night!
