and Welcome to Holy Rood, Oxford

The Church of Holy Rood is part of the Parish of North Hinksey in Oxford and is situated near Folly Bridge on the Abingdon Road, not far from the centre of Oxford.

Led by Parish Priest Father Daniel Lloyd, our welcoming congregation reflects the variety of nationalities that can be found in Oxford and the surrounding areas. We also have close links with our three sister Churches across Oxford – Our Lady of the Rosary, Botley, and the Chapels of the Good Shepherd, Kennington, and St Thomas More, Boars Hill.

It is ideally situated for Catholic guests staying at the Four Pillars Hotel. It also hosts a Mass on Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons for the Portugese speaking community in Oxford.

Whether you are new to the parish or an existing church member, please explore our website to join in our faith celebration and to find out how you can get the most out of your Parish and Church community.
