We believe in inclusive church – a church which celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate.

Friends of St Laurence

Friends of St Laurence is an informal association of people who would want to help us sustain and build on our vision to be a church that serves the people of Winslow and shapes the community spirit that is so valuable to the town. 

We started up the Friends to allow the local community to support their church and the work it does, whether they are regular churchgoers or not.

We ask Friends to consider a regular monthly donation to St Laurence, and we keep in touch and ensure Friends are invited to various events. 

If you are interested in becoming a Friend, please contact George Hooper.

Our aspirations:

what we, as a church, aspire to be 

A doormat reads


A place where we feed, nourish

and include all as members of the Inclusive Church.

Outstretched hands illuminated against a black backdrop


A place where hurts and failures are transformed through love and affirmation

Hands hold a small lit candle


A place where God can be encountered and people feel known, loved and blessed


The Winslow Benefice is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. 

We follow the House of Bishops' guidance and policies. We have adopted the Church of England's
Safeguarding Policy
as our local policy and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). 

Our PSO Chris Ryalls can be contacted by email at [email protected].

 The Diocese of Oxford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. These can be found here
