The Story of Witney Baptist Church

The earliest recording of Baptists meeting in Witney was in the 1800s. This work seems to have merged into the life of the Congregational church somewhere in the 1870s and then disappeared from view.

In the early 1990s an unsuccessful attempt to re-plant Witney Baptist Church was made. Some 20 years later a pioneering work led by Woodstock Baptist Church is underway! It is our vision to establish a church in preparation for the planned house building that is to occur in West Witney.

Meeting at a geographic location, adjacent to the proposed development, we aim to grow a strong Christian community. We will be able to offer the hospitality of Christ to folk already in the town or preparing to move into West Witney.

A key part of our dream is to have the first house on the development from which to base our outreach worker, who will then welcome new residents to the area and the church.

Our desire is that the blessings of God reach the people in the community.
