About Us


What is Living Stones?

Living Stones is the heritage and educational arm of the parish church of St Mary the Virgin in the historic village of Iffley, Oxford.  We involve local people, visitors and specialists in events and activities which celebrate our twelfth century church with its awe-inspiring architecture and carvings.


What do we do?

 Living Stones began in 2016 as part of a historic conservation project and has blossomed into an ongoing programme of community activities. We run events - from drawing days to music workshops - which offer a fun and fascinating glimpse into the lives and effort of the people who created our church 850 years ago.  What's on and tickets here


Who is involved?

We are a team of volunteers of all ages and backgrounds who enjoy our twelfth century church, both as a building and for its place in our community. We guide visitors around the church on summer weekend afternoons;  we support participants at our workshops and we supervise visits from local schools.  Volunteer here  (See below)
