St Frideswide's

Botley Road, West Oxford

Who Are We?

We are the Anglican church serving the vibrant district of West Oxford and Osney Island.  We are part of the Osney Benefice, working in partnership with our next door neighbour parish, North Hinksey & Botley.

St Frideswide’s is dedicated to the patroness of Oxford. Since our church was founded in the nineteenth century, we have built up Christians in the faith through the celebration of the sacraments and the study of Holy Scripture.

You can learn more about out history here.


Currently, services are suspended to comply with the lockdown measures. We are open as much as possible for personal prayer so please do come in if the doors of the church are open. The clergy are also still available for pastoral conversations, and for funerals. 

To join our WhatsApp Daily prayer group or for the link for Zoom Sunday Evening Prayer at 5pm,  please get in touch with Revd Kate. Daily prayer and worship resources are being posted on our St Frideswide with Binsey Facebook page.

Baptisms, Weddings & Funerals

Our beautiful church is a public building, here for the community it serves.  If you live in our parish or have a connection with our parish, we welcome you to celebrate a baptism or to get married here. Our clergy are also available to conduct funeral services in the church or at the crematorium. Do contact us if we can help.
