Death of a man near St Frideswide’s Church in Oxford

We were saddened by news of the tragic death of a man in his 60s near St Frideswide Church on Botley Road, Oxford, on Tuesday evening.

The church yard had been cordoned off throughout Wednesday as police carried out an investigation. We are co-operating with the police and we are keeping everyone involved inthis tragedy in our prayers. St Frideswide Church will be open throughout daylight hours of Thursday and Friday (Feb 7 and 8) for anyone who wants to pray or reflect.
