This Advent, we are delighted to be able to offer a film showing for families. The event will be held after school on Wednesday 18th December at St Andrew’s Church, Headington, OX3 9DL.

Doors will open at 4.00pm, when we will be serving food for the children and mulled drinks for the adults. You can enjoy a “follow the star” game in the church, before the film begins at 5.00pm. Children are welcome to bring cushions and dressing-gowns with them to be as comfortable as possible! 

The film will be over by 6.30pm, at which time it’s back home for bed! This event is ideal for children aged 2-10, but parents / carers must be present throughout. Look out for posters around the local area. If you have any questions about this event, please ask Tim Howles.

Well, it is about four weeks to go and we are counting down to this year's Headington Funday. This is the fourteenth year of the Funday and each year has been a time of great blessing for all involved. (Click here for a pdf of the A5 flyer.)  We are getting ready on several fronts: fundraising, asking for volunteers, and prayer. No question which is more important, it is prayer! 

So we have organised some extra prayer times in addition to the monthly Priory Prayers meeting on June 24th. The details are below, if you have any questions about the prayer times, email Phil Herklots for answers.


We also need help with finding some marquees/ gazebos for the day. As well as about 100 volunteers on the day to keep things running smoothly. If you can help or would like to volunteer, please email Carmen Guanzon.

We look forward to seeing you all on the 13th in the Park!
