This benefice is part of the Diocese of Oxford,

in the Deanery of Woodstock.  

Benefice Formation

In 1960 the parish of Westcote Barton was merged with that of Steeple Barton, and in 1975 this united benefice combined with Sandford St Martin,

closely followed by Duns Tew in 1977.  

In 2015 a rearrangement of deanery boundaries allowed Over Worton and Nether Worton to join us.

Family@Church services on the 1st and 3rd Sundays in the month are specifically aimed at children and their families, and include breakfast, children's activities and worship songs.

Children are welcomed at regular services in all of our churches.  


Bell Ringers

We have an enthusiastic team of Bell Ringers

who practise on Thursday evenings at

Sandford St Martin, and ring for all our churches.  

If you would like to know more,

please get in touch with the tower captain

Phil Sharman on 01869 340626.


Our Benefice Choir rehearses in Middle Barton on Monday evenings from 7:30 to 9pm.

The full choir supports major services,

with a reduced choir at most other services.  

More singers are always very welcome!

"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."                Matthew 18:20
