Wild Christian
Are you a Wild Christian?

Join the Wild Christian community to explore the connections between faith, nature and big environmental issues like climate change.

Each month, we'll send you something to think about and a practical action that you can take in your own home to help nature along. We can all then share our efforts on social media to get a wider conversation going.

Swifts in Oxford
Our Swift response

In response to the RSPB "giving nature a home" initiative and the local project "Introducing swifts to Oxford", we have the go ahead to apply for swift boxes. They will be attached to the North East wall of the church (just above the new bike rack area).

Swifts love a long tunnel-like approach to the nest; they are communal birds and are happy to nest alongside other swift families. They are also very good housekeepers - there is no mess below the nests and no need to clean out the nests after use.

Did you know … Swifts can do everything on the wing? They can eat, drink, sleep and even mate in the air. They only land to visit their nest sites.

Watch this space for more swift news … we hope to see swifts nesting in our church grounds next year.

See for more information and to become a swift fan.
