General enquiries:



Christ Church, established by Henry VIII in 1546, is a unique foundation of College and Cathedral. It is home to some 650 undergraduate and postgraduate students and over a hundred Senior Members. Christ Church occupies a 150-acre site in the heart of Oxford, including the Meadow, a tranquil area of pasture, preserved for centuries and bounded by the Rivers Isis and Cherwell.

For the Festival of Preaching, we will use the Cathedral (of course) and a few of the modern, comfortable lecture rooms. Some sessions will be based at St Aldate's Church, opposite the college.
