About Us

Barton Community Church seeks to be authentic community bringing hope to the heart of Barton through making Jesus known. We’re a diverse community of around 40 people who call Barton ‘home’ – some who’ve lived here all their lives and others who’ve moved onto the estate to be a part of this community.

As a church, we’ve been here since 2010 joining in with what God is doing in this estate. We were set up by Headington Baptist Church and continue to be part of that church. Come and meet our church family and say hello and you’ll feel welcome and – more often than not – enjoy some food with us. You’d be welcome anytime.
So, come and visit on a Sunday or get in touch using the details at the bottom.

Some of our values

We are Family

We don’t wait until Sunday to see each other. Each of us has something to contribute. We’re sticking together.

We Welcome


Whatever your story, there is space for you. We want you to feel welcomed, included and to know that you belong here.

We care for each other

if you need a lift, jump in; if you need help, we’re there; if it’s your birthday, here’s a cake

We eat together

 if we’re meeting together, we’re normally eating together
