Oxford Diocese Annual Review 2021

An extraordinary year

This year, perhaps as never before, we’ve witnessed the tremendous value of being part of a diocese, supporting and listening to one another, working in partnership with each other and across our local communities. It is remarkable what our parishes, schools and chaplaincies have achieved during this extraordinary year.

Deep appreciation and thanks go to each of our teachers, our clergy and lay ministers, our wardens, church officers, and volunteers. Your work to minister to the dying and their families, to schools, to those facing food shortages, to your communities in so many different ways has been nothing short of phenomenal.

Bishop Steven Croft and Mark Humphriss, Diocesan Secretary
