"University Church"

Although mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, the oldest parts of the church we now see are the 13th-century tower and 14th-century spire. Until specialized university buildings were available, St Mary's was used for university meetings, examinations and ceremonies. In fact, the flat-roofed extension which is now a cafe was once the university parliament building. It was in this church that Archbishop Cranmer was tried for heresy in 1555; where John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, preached his famous 1774 sermon; and where John Keeble delivered his Assize sermon (in 1833) which became the catalyst for the Oxford Movement.
