Welcome to the website for the Church of St Andrew in Oddington, Oxfordshire. We have set up this site to share with visitors the history and architecture of this beautiful mediaeval church and its surrounds, we also wanted to make everyone aware of the plans and progress for restoring this historically important church.
New additions to the site.
On 11 August 2019 we were joined at our Holy Communion by members Ngati Hinemihi tribe of Maoris, who were on a tour of this country. Before the service they paid homage at the grave of Maggie Papakura. More here……
The Church DoorThe church door has been repainted by Jeremy Launchbury, one of the team which decorated the church following the restoration in 2013. The vibrant red is the same colour as the screen in the chancel.
