Welcome to St Nicholas Church!

A church that’s here for you

Welcome to the St Nicholas Church website! If you are looking for the perfect church, St Nicholas is probably not for you. But if you are excited about the possibility of joining a group of men, women and children (of all ages) who are fascinated by Jesus, and want to make sense of 21st century life by trying to follow him, then you may find this a place you can be comfortable.

Come and help us as we explore together how to be Christians in 21st century Oxford.

If you have any questions or just want to get in touch, we’d love to hear from you. You can find contact details for the members of the team here on the Contacts page.

We are seeking a new vicar to lead our joint benefice of Marston and Elsfield. We have produced a Parish Profile to provide more information about our churches and our hopes for the future. You can find more information about the vacancy and details of how to apply on the Oxford Diocesan website.

This is our prayer:

God of our past and our future, You have raised up holy men and women to serve in your church throughout all ages. Bless with your Holy Spirit’s grace and presence those who will discern and choose the next vicar of Marston and Elsfield. Keep us, your people, who serve in these parishes steadfast in faith and united in love that we may seek your will and hear your voice. We ask this in the name of him who came not to be served by to serve Jesus Christ our Lord.
