Brief Description

Initially a small chapel was built and dedicated on All Saints’ Day 1870. In 1910 a new and larger church consisting only of the nave was built, funded by the Morrell family and the villagers of New Headington. Fund-raising to add both a chancel with choir stalls and a vestry were delayed by the outbreak of the 1914–1918 war. Further fund raising in the inter-war years enabled the addition of the chancel in 1937. Designed in 1910 by Arthur Blomfield, the church has lancet windows with an impressive interior - short piers and broad arches.
