OHCT Church Directory
The OHCT is working to create a searchable database of all the churches in Oxfordshire, of which there are over 550. The church database information includes, description, photographs, location and map and highlights of architectural treasurers within the church. Though a very valuable database, the scale of this project is a challenge and the current database is therefore very much a work in progress.
The OHCT would like to thank photographer John Ward for allowing us to feature his incredible photographs on our website. We would also like to acknowledge many local historians for enabling us to compile the church directory, in particular Jennifer Sherwood, Richard Wheeler, and Richard Lethbridge. Yale University Press have also allowed us to quote from their published works.
Realising Your Church Project - Saturday 18th March
In March 2017 in conjunction with the DAC and the parish of Chalgrove we organised a day of shared learning about how (and how not) to manage a major church project with St Mary’s itself as both the venue and the superb exemplar. We had extremely good speakers and attracted enthusiastic participation from the wider Diocese and beyond.
