Latest update: 12 January 2021. Due to public health measures during the coronavirus pandemic, public worship is currently suspended in all churches. Most activities that usually happen in church buildings are also cancelled. Please check individual church websites and the circuit plan for the latest details.

The Oxford Methodist Circuit offers an online or downloadable service of worship through this special website each week:

This website also lists other resources and opportunities for worship while we cannot meet in the usual ways. 

God of all hope we call on you today.
We pray for those who are living in fear:
Fear of illness, fear for loved ones, fear of other’s reactions to them.
May your Spirit give us a sense of calmness and peace.

We pray for your church in this time of uncertainty.
For those people who are worried about attending worship.
For those needing to make decisions in order to care for other
For those who will feel more isolated by not being able to attend.
Grant us your wisdom.

Holy God, we remember that you have promised that
Nothing will separate us from your love – demonstrated to us in Jesus Christ.
Help us turn our eyes, hearts and minds to you.


(Prayer from the Methodist Church)
