The Church of England
Christ Church
Christ Church
The traditional forms of worship still take place within much loved and historic buildings like Christchurch cathedral - but the evangelical wing of the church seems to be moving away from using overtly religious buildings, in favour of a more flexible and informal approach.

FACTS

The Anglican Church of England has been recognised as the "official" or "established" church since Henry VIII rejected the supremacy of the Pope in 1534

The heart of the famous Christchurch cathedral choir is sixteen boy choristers chosen from the cathedral school just across the road from the college.

Oxford Community Church is one of ten community churches in the county which all work together.
