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.
Flower Festival at St Andrew’s
A Flower Festival was held at St Andrew’s over the weekend of the late August Bank Holiday weekend. A team of flower arrangers, led by Celia Warde-Aldham, produced a number of stunning displays connected with the theme of “The Creation.”
The Festival raised an amazing £1,300 for church funds – a great reflection of the work of the team.
Farewell to Vivienne Davies
A special Evening Prayers service was held at St. Andrew’s on 7 August 2022 to mark the retirement of Vivienne Davies after 26 years as Churchwarden. Viv chose the hymns and readings. There was a large congregation of people from Oddington and the surrounding villages. The service was led by the Rev. Lisa Holmes, assisted by the Rector, the Rev. Steve Hayes.
After the service Viv was presented with a tray designed by Rosemary Morton-Jack, showing various photographs of the church taken by Nigel Lambert. She also received a bouquet of flowers and a John Lewis voucher. The event was suitably celebrated by wine and food.
