Events in Church  

As well as being the centre of worship and prayer for this Christian
community in Headington, All Saints Church is widely used for all sorts
of other community groups.

It is particularly suitable for concerts, and for group practice. Among
groups that use it regularly are Headington Singers, the City of Oxford
Choir
, the OXUS string quartet, and musical societies at Oxford Brookes
University. Various visiting groups also use it, a recent example being
Cardiff Opera, who gave a marvellous performance of a concert version
of Mozart’s ‘The marriage of Figaro’.

The church has an excellent Beckstein grand piano, and an organ
whose quality is renowned in Oxford. We also have facilities like staging,
and the kitchen area makes the serving of refreshments possible. In
normal (i.e. pre-Covid) times there was room for an audience of about
200 people, even if there was also a large choir and accompanying
orchestra. At the moment (Sept 2021) we are restricting audiences to
110, as we still have to be cautious. Also, if more were allowed, the
necessary ventilation would make some areas very cold, with winter
approaching.

If you want to enquire about availability, costs, and other details, please
contact the chair of the events committee Catherine Hodgkinson using
events@allsaintsheadington.org.uk.

Figaro

A “Covid times” concert. There is an audience of just 100 here, and

Marriage of Figaro”.

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!

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details here) for our Sunday Service starting at 10am. For your first visit, it helps to arrive early to get a parking spot and a seat in time for the service to start. When you arrive, you will be greeted by one of our sidespersons who will give you a service booklet 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.

You are equally welcome to wear a mask or not.

Accessibility: 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.


After the service

We serve tea, coffee and biscuits. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings.


What about my kids?

We believe that children are an important part of the church. God’s gracious covenant promises extend not just to us, but also to our children. We want to follow the example of Jesus, who said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them” (Matthew 19:14).

We therefore 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 one makes a bit of noise. No-one in the congregation will mind. Quite the opposite!
