Hello

A warm welcome to the Benefice of Blenheim, a group of five parishes in the Diocese of Oxford.

Our churches are places of beauty and holiness at the heart of our communities. God has been worshipped in these parishes for a thousand years, and we’d love you to come and share our life.

The clergy team works together across the parishes to to bring the good news of God through Jesus Christ to all of our communities.
