The second parish in the Benefice of Marston with Elsfield, is the parish of Elsfield, a delightful though tiny village just outside the Northern Bypass.
In 2002 we carried out extensive work to reorder the church and build an extension to provide a village room, kitchen and toilets for community and church activities. The church itself retains its fine acoustics, and a deep sense of peaceful quietness in which God can speak to our heart.
The Salviati mosaic has recently been restored, and was rededicated by the Bishop of Oxford at a special service in October 2011.
Come and join us!
We have a regular Sunday service once a month, usually on the 4th Sunday of each month, and additional services at Easter, Whitsun and Christmas.
