St Mary Magdalen’s is an Anglican church in central Oxford. We are a vibrant all-age and inclusive community, offering worship and witness in the Catholic tradition.

“St Mary Magdalen’s has a central position not only physically in Oxford, but spiritually in the minds and hearts of Catholic Anglicans worldwide. Its open door has been for countless people a door into renewed faith and profound joy in believing.” — Rowan Williams
