Our Church

The Chapel of St Thomas More is located in Foxcombe Road on Boars Hill and is part of the main Parish of North Hinksey, Oxford. Led by Parish Priest Father Paul King, this little Chapel makes up in history what it lacks in size, and prides itself on being the starting point of the Parish.

 

THE PRAYER LIFE OF THE PARISH

“Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I.” (Matt 18:20)

Christ is the inspiration and the motivation of all that we do and are in the parish. We are called to build a personal relationship with Christ through our prayer life.

As a parish, we try to provide opportunities for prayer – the celebration of the Eucharist being the parish’s central prayer. In order to prepare for the Eucharist, we need to provide other opportunities for prayer. Throughout the year we gather to prepare for the major feasts of Advent and Lent, the rosary is prayed regularly, and various prayer groups meet. Prayer brings us together so that we are more than just a mere collection of isolated individuals.

 

If you have any ideas that would help in the development of the parish’s prayer life, we would love to hear from you.
