Introduction to the Summertown-Wolvercote Church Partnership

The Church Partnership succeeds the Ecumenical Parish of Wolvercote with Summertown which was inaugurated in 1982 when the Anglican churches of St Michael's, Summertown and St Peter's, Wolvercote entered into a covenanted relationship with Summertown United Reformed Church. It is very good that the Church Partnership now also includes Wolvercote Baptist Church. Together we are committed to:

1. The good news of the love of God in Christ for everyone
2. An understanding of the bible as the core of the Christian faith interpreted in the light of tradition under the guidance of the Holy Spirit
3. Worship for all ages through both word and sacrament and faith which allows questions to be asked and answers sought
4. The inclusion of all ages, genders and races and a commitment to interfaith dialogue and understanding
5. The working out of our faith in service to the local community and the wider world.

Renewal of Partnership Covenant

The Partnership Covenant was renewed at a special service in May 2015 at Wolvercote Baptist Church. The text of the Covenant and the Order for the Renewal Service may be seen at Renewal Service and Covenant
