 Church Open for Private Prayer

All Saints' Church is open daily from about 10.ooam until late afternoon for private prayer.


Local Support Network

The local support team is made up of parish councillors and some other residents. Every house in Cuddesdon and Denton has been visited by members of the team, mainly to identify those who are most vulnerable and to develop a support network in the community. There is a WhatsApp group for the community as well as several other local Whatsapp groups. Most other residents can be communicated with by email.

This support network means that we can give support to one another if it becomes necessary as well as monitoring the most vulnerable in our two villages.
