Oxford Group

Welcome to the Oxford Group,  we meet at the The Crown & Thistle in Abingdon (Location of Oxford Group) on the second Thursday of each month and we enjoy catching up with each other with a coffee or tea and over breakfast and either listening to a knowledgeable speaker or studying a thought provoking DVD series. We conclude with prayers.

Meeting at 07:30 until 09:15 means the meeting does not impact too much on the working day, on the contrary we usually feel encouraged and uplifted after each meeting and at £12 we value the regular input.

As the coordinator of this group I would personally like to invite you to sign up below to receive our monthly invitation to this group.

Kind regards



Oxford Breakfast – Thursday 13th December 2018

To finish the year strong with thought and reflection, this month we will be having 

A Forum event .

There will be an opportunity to discuss several ideas, current events, and situations which occur on a daily basis amongst Christian leaders in the business world, both locally and globally.

Come with your burning issues and questions and be prepared to discuss, learn and grow amongst a close group of Christian Business Leaders, and bring your questions, as we look to God’s Word for reference and refreshing in the final meeting of 2018.

As in the past I am confident that the Forum will be most stimulating and also a time for one last get together before Christmas.


Fruit juice and tea / coffee will be available on arrival when you sign up please make your choice from a menu of 4 options for breakfast.

Option 1 – Eggs Benedict – Poached egg on a toasted muffin with bacon and hollandaise sauce

Option 2 – Eggs Fungi – Poached eggs on a toasted muffin with Portobello mushroom and hollandaise sauce

Option 3 – Portobello – Sweet potato chilli hash, grilled plum tomato, baked beans, Portobello mushroom, kale & pumpkin seed pesto, chopped avocado, toasted sourdough

Option 4 – The English – Bacon, sausage, eggs, grilled tomato, Portobello mushroom and toast

Please join us on Thursday 13th December, invite a friend and be inspired to live out your faith in your business and take it to the next level.

Yours – David
