St Aldates

St Aldates is a busy city centre church with 3 services every Sunday and a packed midweek programme of events, groups and courses. We are a tri-generational church with a heart to minister to all those who come through our doors, while equipping all our members to be ministers of the gospel in their homes, streets, colleges, schools and workplaces.

"Commonwealth House was founded 50 years ago to provide reasonably priced accommodation mainly for foreign students in Oxford. Since then it has become a place of deep hospitality welcoming people from many nations to this world-class city. Links with the vibrant community of St Aldates Church  next door have remained strong and a variety of social and cultural events are offered to residents to make the most of their time in Oxford."

Charlie Cleverly

Former Rector of St Aldates


We welcome people from every nation to get involved at St Aldates and add the richest of Christianity from their culture to ours.
