ABOUT ST ANDREW'S CHURCH
St Andrew's, Dean Court is a small church on the western edge of Oxford, about 3 miles from the city centre. It is part of Cumnor (Church of England) Parish, along with St Michael's, Cumnor and St Mary's, Farmoor.
The wooden building was put up in 1961; before that services in Dean Court were held in the old social club in Pinnocks Way (replaced in 2014). We now have exciting plans to rebuild the church. (Read more)
We have a second building (known as the St Andrew's Centre, or STAC) used for small groups, and a multi-purpose hard court with goals and basketball nets which is open all the time for community use.
St Andrew's is home to The JOY Place, a monthly service designed for adults with learning disabilities, which has its own leadership. There is easy access for the disabled.
Our vicar, Revd Jonathan Widdess, joined us in March 2016. He lives in Cumnor. Our part-time Parish Administrator, Sarah Evans, is based in the Parish Office in Cumnor.
Several others, lay and ordained, preach and lead services. More about the Ministry Team.
We are developing our parish vision which is based on Acts 2:42-47.
Together with Jesus we will grow in:
Living life together 2:46
Serving others 2:44-46
Sharing the good news 2:43
