The church does tremendous work to support the community.
There are so many wonderful churches in my constituency, but I do have two favourite ones. The first is from a purely personal point of view. It is All Saints at Spelsbury where my family sometimes worship when we are at home in Oxfordshire. It has a very special memory of my late son, Ivan’s, christening. Another church I have great affection for in my constituency is St Mary the Virgin in Witney. I have the honour of being one of the Patrons for the Appeal for Restoration and Renewal and have been so impressed by the hard work of dedicated and enthusiastic parishioners and clergy for this appeal. St Mary is one of the oldest buildings in Witney and one of the biggest in West Oxfordshire. Its origins go back to Norman times but the present building is mostly 13th century. It stands on Church Green near the town centre, and its spire is a landmark for many miles around. The church does tremendous work to support the community and is an important part of Witney life.
