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 £14 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



As a reminder, there will not be an August breakfast as we break for the summer. Please plan on meeting us again on Thursday, 12 September 2019! More details to follow soon…
