All Saints Church, Wytham
Welcome to the website of 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.
Friends Of All Saints Church
The Friends of All Saints is an association aimed at uniting all those who love and value the church of All Saints, Wytham and its place in the community.
We run many social and other events each year to help raise funds for ongoing repairs to the structure and maintenance of our Church building and its surroundings, now over 200 years old.For more information on our activities and how to join The Friends see: Friends of All Saints, Wytham.
Our recent roof repair project is now completed, after several years of intensive fund raising -a big thank you goes out to all of those who supported us – you were all very generous – THANK YOU!
However the fund raising needs to carry on as our “to do” list is never ending. Our next priority involves replacing the chancel lighting, followed by internal redecoration.
So do come along and support us when you can!
