Sermons - Autumn 2018

Just as we saw in nature the leaves turning and the summer flowers dying, so the Autumn season of sermons brought us to the close of the Church year. The final weeks of Ordinary Time brought us All Saints' and All Souls' before reaching the final few weeks before Advent, and the launch of the next cycle of seasons.

Sermons - Summer 2018

After the joy of Easter, the next couple of months moved us through Ascension Day to prayer for the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. We came then to Ordinary Time as the church continued to grow in discipleship.

Sermons - Lent and Easter 2018

During this season of Lent, Holy Week and Easter, in common with our fellow Christians across the globe, we marked the life-changing events of Christ’s passion, death and resurrection.

Sermon Series

At Christ Church we are lucky to exist at the intersection of University, College, and Diocese, and occupy a central position in the vibrant city of Oxford. Our sermon series are an opportunity to engage with the influences of Oxford's long history and active cultural scene.

Holy Week Reflections

Throughout Holy Week, Martyn Percy, Dean of the Cathedral, gave short reflections on the theme of Faith, Fear, and Folly.


During Lent 2018, our series of sermons helped us to respond to Bishop's Steven's call to be more Christ-like, contemplative, compassionate and courageous as individuals and as the Cathedral Church by exploring a specific beatitude each week.

Divine Epiphanies

Over four Sundays in January 2018, sermons were based on religious objects from the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, selected from the exhibition, ‘Imagining the Divine’.
