The Oxford Mission Church is the second largest of Asia’s continent and one of the architectural features of artistic churches in Bangladesh. In the divisional city of Barisal in the southern part of West Bengal, the oldest structure is the epiphany church, but it is known as the Oxford Mission. The Father of the Red Brick gave the original shape of Sister Edith’s design. Construction began in 1903 and ended in 1907.
The attractive church built in Greek architecture has a large prayer room. Inside the wall, the green grass carpet will be covered with dense grounds, 13 ponds, Oxford Mission Primary School and Oxford Mission High School, hospital, library, student hostel, playground, flower garden and medicinal plants. There is a huge cross on the original altar. Around 35 acres of land, engraving with wood in the church and marble stone tiled floor. The church is the same level as the 5th floor in height. Inside scenery is a very pleasant, quiet-friendly environment, row-row pump tree. The Father’s House mirrors the waters around the dighi. Mother’s House is also there. The church has an interesting bell, which is the largest in Asia, playing it seven times a day. There are numerous corridors and 40 archers in the church, which strengthen its structure. It seems from a distance train engine. The passengers of this engine will go to heaven with the yoke of faith.
