The daily offering of worship to God is at the heart of Christ Church. Everyone is welcome to join the worshipping community of Christ Church Cathedral, whether for a single service, or more regularly.

The advertised time for Cathedral Services is five minutes later than 'normal' time (GMT or BST depending upon season), because the Cathedral still keeps the old Oxford Time which is five minutes west of Greenwich. Thus 6:00 p.m. Oxford time is 6:05 p.m. GMT/BST.
