COME and SEE 2024

Many people are asking deep questions of faith. Come and See is a free online experience to explore spirituality and help you find out more about the Christian faith.

Our 40-day journey begins on 14 February 2024. This year we will be exploring how Jesus invites us into the Way of Love. 

Register below and we'll send you bite-sized daily emails to reflect on and a weekly short film
from the Bishop of Oxford.  

Come and See 2024 (mailchi.mp)


This year we're exploring how each of us is called into a deep relationship of love with God, and what it means to love others well. In three of the four gospels, Jesus is asked which commandment is the most important. He answers not with one commandment but with two: you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and mind and strength, and you shall love your neighbour as yourself.
Come and See shows how these two commandments can give a rhythm and a shape to our lives. Why not come and see for yourself
whether you're exploring faith for the first time or have been coming to church for many years, Come and See offers life-giving reflections before the busyness of each day begins.
Thousands of people take part in Come and See each year. Join us and others this Lent.

What do people say about Come and See?

"The Bishop's language and imagery in the films was excellent and worked extremely well for us, a group of people in their 20s.”​

"The contemplative exercises are wonderfully focussed and simple… and yet amazingly profound and moving."

"A wonderful space to explore our faith further and learn from each other. It was a highlight of my week and helped me through some difficult times personally.​"
