Welcome to Cumnor Parish

JonathanWelcome to the parish of Cumnor in west Oxford. Four miles from the centre of Oxford, we stand on the boundary of the city, combining suburban convenience, village community life and wonderful countryside. Our three churches each serve their local neighbourhoods: Cumnor, Dean Court and Farmoor. Our congregations are diverse communities united in faith, love and practical action. We would love to welcome you to one of our services.

Jonathan Widdess has been our vicar since March 2017. He is thoroughly enjoying getting to know the people of the parish and the wider community.

Previously he was Priest in charge of Bargoed and Deri with Brithdir  in the Rhymney Valley, South Wales and before that he was Assistant Curate at St Mark’s Church, Gabalfa, Cardiff. Before ordination, Jonathan worked for 11 years in the IT industry initially in IT support, and later in software development.  Jonathan is married to Amanda, and has two young children: Elizabeth and Benji.
