Office Holder

This compact rural benefice, set in attractive countryside, consists of five village churches just north of Banbury, with access to strong transport links, a good local C of E primary school and a wide choice of secondary schools.

We look forward to welcoming a new vicar with personal and spiritual depth who will:

  • Strengthen us in faith and fellowship, working within our broadly central churchmanship but comfortable with a wide range of worship styles;
  • Be an integral part of the vibrant community life of the Benefice;
  • Inspire us to grow in the Love of God, in numbers and in the pastoral care of all parishioners.

In return we can offer:

  • A capable, experienced and supportive ministry team, skilled churchwardens and active PCCs;
  • A strong core of fund raisers and active members with a wealth of gifts and talents;
  • Administrative help;
  • A well-appointed vicarage in the heart of Cropredy, with a manageable garden.

For an informal discussion, please contact The Venerable David Tyler, Archdeacon of Dorchester, on 07961 726403 or email him at
