Who we are

Welcome to All Saints Church, Wytham in Oxfordshire, UK.

There has been a church in Wytham, as far as we know, since at least 1135. The current building was constructed by Montague Bertie, 5th Earl of Abingdon, in 1811 -1812, using materials from its predecessor and from Cumnor Place, or Hall, which had recently been demolished.

The church contains many artefacts and memorials from the 17th Century, and a few - mainly stained glass - from much earlier. Some of the glass may have been made as early as the end of the fourteenth century. Much of the stonework came from Cumnor Hall, including two, perhaps three windows on the south side of the church. The big east window had to be cut down to fit, and if you look carefully the pictures within the frame can be seen to be incomplete.

History of All Saints Church Wytham

All Saints' Church

Hidden away, near the entrance to Wytham ‘Abbey’, Wytham Church has an initial appealing northern vista, but disappointment soon sets in; for views from the west and east are only possible from the high walled private garden of the ‘Abbey’. Thus, the building’s most interesting features, three Edward III windows (not the glass), removed from the infamous Cumnor Place upon its demolition, can only be seen from the interior. The east window is also from Cumnor, but this has been severely cut down. There is also a Latin inscription over the churchyard gate. Internally, the church betrays itself as an early 19th century structure, despite the medieval looking exterior. The whole is a bit of a mish-mash. The western gallery is edging towards Strawberry Hill Gothic while the main eastern glass very baroque. The place was completely rebuilt for the 5th Earl of Abingdon, who lived at the ‘Abbey,’ in 1810, although it is remarkable how many fittings from the previous building survive. There is the 17th century porch, as well as some medieval roof corbels. One is carved as a bagpiper, but they are high up and difficult to see properly. The other glass in the chancel includes some interesting European Tudor pieces and slightly later heraldry from the ‘Abbey’. The finest glass is one of Anning Bell’s last works in the nave, a beautiful arts-and-crafts-cum-art-nouveau depiction of St. George & the Virgin. Small pieces of late 14th century glass above may feature King Richard II. The other great treasure of All Saints’ is the Wytham Brass. A magnificent portrayal of early 15th century dress, commemorating a past lord of the manor, Robert de Wytham, and his wife, one of the last of the Golafres from Fyfield. Robert’s armour is a particularly interesting example, half-way between earlier and later styles. Although, unfortunately, he has lost his legs. The family arms can be seen on the brass, but better still on the roof above. It features the River Thames, with Oxford and Wytham pinpointed by two stars.

The power of Christian prayer God's Promise
Jesus gave His life so that you do not have to carry your burden. He knows this burden hinders you from having eternal life. He knows your sin burden hinders you from living the abundant life that God created you to live. He knows your sin hinders you from experiencing joy and peace that has no bounds and hinders you from receiving all that God has promised and created you to receive.

You just have to ask.
