Faith and Culture in Oxford




Our Centre for Faith & Culture was founded in Oxford in 1994, and has been based in various locations around the city over the years.


Oxford is well known for its beautiful architecture, not to mention its extraordinary research facilities. The following notes and links focus on Oxford 's Christian communities and heritage.

Guide to Oxford

Walking the few hundred yards between two Anglican churches Ė St Giles and St Mary Magdalen Ė you will pass the Oxford Oratory, the Benedictines, the Eagle and Child pub where the Inklings used to meet, the Christian Scientists, Regentís Park College (Anabaptist), the Quakers, Pusey House, the Dominicans, and the Martyrís Memorial erected to commemorate the Protestants who died under Mary Tudor (a memorial to the Catholic martyrs has recently been put up in another part of town). To anyone who notices these things, Oxford will start to seem a very religious town.  It is a place of religious conversation and revival, a place where faith and reason meet and sometimes clash. Where better for a revival of the Christian imagination and the spirit of charity in the twenty-first century?
