HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh

A statement from Bishop Steven

The prayers of the whole Diocese of Oxford are with Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family today and in the coming days as we mourn the death of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.
We give thanks for Prince Philip’s long and extraordinary life, his faithful service to Queen and country, his support especially for young people, his humour, honesty and integrity and strong Christian faith and especially his steadfast support to the Queen over the long years of their marriage.
Philip has been at the centre of our national life for so many decades offering a model of strength and stability. He will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace and rise in glory, and may God’s peace and love be with all who mourn his passing, and most especially his immediate family.

Resuming public worship in our churches.

It is lovely to be able to resume worship in our churches, apart from St John's Fernham which remains closed to allow the pre-school exclusive access. Most of our churches are also open once or twice a week for private prayer - see our Newsletter for times and dates.
Services will be shorter and the number of people involved kept to a minimum, and we ask that you only go to services in the church you normally attend.Any decision to attend church must be yours, taken prudently and prayerfully in the light of your own health and wellbeing, as well as those around you. Please don’t feel obliged to come just because the service is happening – we won’t be offended!
Meanwhile, the regular online services continue and we hope to be able to livestream more of them from our churches.

Please download the Newsletter for full details.

If you need to talk or ask for specific prayers, please get in touch.
