Our Parish Hall 


Our Parish Hall in New High Street, called Church House, is operated as a separate charitable trust, but all the building costs, and a good number of repair costs, have been paid for by All Saints Church. It is our offering to the parish. It is a busy and lively community centre used by a huge range of groups.

Booking the Hall

The hall is kept free on Sunday afternoons and evenings for parties, especially children’s parties. Arts groups are also welcome, and we have in the past welcomed events such as puppet shows and small music groups. Note that we do not book events going on after 10pm, out of consideration for our neighbours.

The Upper Hall, see below, is free during the day, and is available for booking. It is ideal, for example, for training classes.

The Upper Hall is also kept free of regular bookings on Friday evenings.

To enquire about booking the hall, and hire charges, please contact the booking secretary using

Main Hall



The main hall is a high open space, big enough for all types of events, and able to take party equipment such as bouncy castles. Available to book on Sunday afternoons and evenings.




A well-equipped kitchen (cooker, microwave, kettles, fridge etc.) with plenty of crockery, plates, mugs, cups, glasses and etc. This is available to all users, but is especially useful for Main Hall and Committee Room users.

Committee Room


Useful for smaller meetings and ‘breakout groups’. This room only has regular bookings during the weekend.

Upper Hall


An air open room, that can hold up to about 40 people seated. This is available to book during the day mid-week.

Solar Panel

As a contribution to doing something about our climate emergency, the trustees invested about £15,000 in a 10 kWpk solar panel installation in 2016. It generates far more electricity than we use, and so if you live near the hall your electricity will sometimes be coming from our panels. We have exported (on 6/9/21) nearly 10,000 kWh of electricity. The equivalent, using a calculation of dubious optimism by the electricity company, of planting 114 trees. 



Planning your Visit

A Warm Welcome

We welcome everyone to our Sunday services - whether you are sure you believe, sure you don't believe or not sure either way!

We are a Church of England parish church in the central area of Headington, Oxford.

Our worship is traditional, joyful and friendly. You can read more about how we worship here

We celebrate communion every week. All who profess belief in the Lord Jesus Christ and who have been baptised are cordially invited to participate with us in the Lord’s Supper.

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details here) for our Sunday Service starting at 10am. When you arrive, you will be greeted by one of our sidespersons who will give you a service booklet, a bulletin and a hymn book.

You are welcome to join in as much as you like - or just to listen quietly if you prefer.

There is no need to book.

We serve refreshments after the service.  We would love for you to join us. 

Come as you are 

You will find people in t-shirts and jeans and others in suits and dresses. Come in whatever you find most comfortable.

You are equally welcome to wear a mask or not.


There is wheelchair access (via the south door), and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There is an accessible toilet at the west end of the church.

What about my kids?

We welcome children at all our services and we encourage them to participate in our worship. Of course, we understand that babies and young children sometimes need a break - so we have a children's corner at the back where parents can take children when necessary.

There are also often activities put on for children during the sermon.

But please don’t worry if your little ones make some noise. No-one in the congregation will mind. Quite the opposite! (the vicar's daughter is one of the loudest...)
