Our Deanery Vocation:

Our thirty eight church buildings are missional vessels which form the Deanery of Witney.  The deanery stretches from the border of Gloucester Diocese to the west, and east towards Oxford city. Together we are committed to making a difference and supporting the growth of discipleship which helps people grow in the Faith.  As part of this we see it as vital that we ‘encourage one another and build each other up’ (1 Thes 5.11).

For Anglican Christians God’s mission is about transformation – transforming individual lives, transforming communities and transforming the world. As we follow Jesus Christ, we believe that God’s mission is revealed to us by the Holy Spirit in three ways:

•through the Bible

•through the tradition and life of the Church

•through our own listening, praying, thinking and sharing as we respond to our own context.
