St Mary’s Cogges (CofE)
A lively evangelical church aiming to demonstrate God’s Kingdom through worship, outreach and fellowship.
St Mary’s Church, Cogges has been serving the community of Cogges for at least 900 years, and its building dates from the late 11th Century to the late 14th Century. Today the church is a thriving Christian community with extensive links into the parish and the wider Witney area.
8.00am Holy Communion
This is a reflective service of Holy Communion following the Book of Common Prayer. There is a short sermon but no hymns. On the first Sunday each month, the service is followed by “Coffee and Croissants” in the Church Centre.
9.15am Morning Worship
The first Sunday of each month at 9.15 Holy Communion will be celebrated. On the third Sunday at 9.15am we will continue to have the service which incorporates Baptisms or Thanksgivings and the other Sundays will be times of morning worship – all with sung worship. The 9.15am service will be shorter than the 10.30am and more reflective. After the service we meet for coffee at Cogges Kitchen in Cogges Manor Farm, except on Baptisms when coffee is served in the church

This Service includes a mixture of modern and traditional music, scripture readings, preaching and prayer. Junior Church for children (0-14) meets in the Church Centre throughout the service and begins with a time of free play. Holy Communion is celebrated on the second Sunday of the month. Tea and coffee, served in the Church Centre after the service, provide an opportunity to get to know people.
6.30pm Evening Service
The Evening Service includes an extended time of informal worship, teaching and an opportunity to receive prayer.
On the 4th Sunday of the month (usually) it is a Celebration Service with a Guest Speaker.
