About us

Oxford Pres was planted in 2018 and we’re so thankful to God for the way he has built and established our community since then! We love gathering around his word, singing his praises, encouraging one another, and serving alongside others in the cause of Christ in Oxford.

Our Church

Oxford Pres is a church of ordinary, less-than-ordinary people, seeking to put Jesus first – to sit under, enjoy, and obey his word; to bless and encourage his people with fellowship and support; to reach out with the news of his amazing initiative to save to those who don’t yet know him; and in all these ways to grow up into his image and embrace the priorities of his kingdom.

Our Team

Oxford Pres has a growing staff team and four elders Andy Young, David Pfeiffer, Tom Hutchings, and Neil Martin.

Our Faith

The Christian gospel is more than just the best news you’ve ever heard. In the words of Rico Tice, it’s like hearing that ‘war has ended’! The peace with God that it offers can be your peace.

Our Building

In January 2023, Oxford Pres secured a long-term lease on the North Gate Hall on St. Michael’s Street, right in the centre of the city. Built as a Methodist chapel in 1871, the building served as the home of the Oxford Intercollegiate Christian Union for almost 60 years before becoming a community centre and then a restaurant.
