Diocese of Oxford

Welcome to St. Bartholomew’s, Ducklington

Let us tell you a little bit about our church.

St. Bartholomew’s is a beautiful medieval building set at the heart of the village. It has been very well cared for and provides us with a marvellous light area for worship which is cool in summer and very warm in winter. The acoustics are excellent.

On a typical Sunday morning, since the coronavirus restrictions have lifted, about 60 people meet for worship in church and a few join us on Zoom for the live-streaming of our services. About half of our congregation live in the village and others come from nearby Witney and surrounding villages. Our age range is 0 to 95. We have a regular small group of school age children who attend church and have activities during the church service.

We have a number of special events through the year, with our unique Fritillary Sunday each April as the highlight.

We like to celebrate the seasons and often do so with food – pancakes, picnics and harvest suppers. We value our relationship with the local primary school and regularly host their events in the church.

The website will show you that we have a number of midweek activities – bell ringing, handbell ringing, housegroups, Lent discussion groups, choir practice and more.

If you are looking for a church, we do invite you to come along and join us. We can assure you of a warm welcome and a style of worship which we feel is appropriate for an English village at the beginning of the 21st century.
