Welcome to our Website!
Welcome to Holy Trinity Headington Quarry website! We are an Anglican Church and part of the Church of England. We have described ourselves as “The Village Church in the City” seeking to be “an open door between heaven and earth showing God’s love for all” and of course we are often known as the church where C.S.Lewis, writer of the Narnia tales and many other books, worshipped for 30 years and is buried in the churchyard. But no short phrase or bit of famous history can really describe a church because the church is about the people who attend at the time just as much as its history and its architecture. So: how to describe ourselves? Well, we are, as most churches, a mixed bunch of people both wounded and exhilarated by life’s journey with a hope that, as we meet together and share both our gifts and our vulnerabilities, we will find the fullness of life and love that Jesus promised us. We come with open minds and open hearts doing our best to reflect honestly on the meaning of the story of Jesus for our day and to welcome all who may want to travel with us without questions about past, background, orientations or beliefs. This is not a church where you will find a fixed set of dogmas but rather an encouragement to wonder, to question and to value the views of others. If you are interested come and see! I hope this web-site will give you something of a taster, but Holy Trinity is really its people. Do join us for any of the services or events listed – or get in touch by phone or e-mail. And see our vision statement for our fuller thinking about who we feel called to be.
