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.

Swearing in of Chuch Warden
Vivienne Davies and Nigel Lambert have been re-elected as Churchwardens for St. Andrew’s.
The normal procedure is that all Churchwardens attend at a church in the Diocese during May to be sworn in by the Bishop. Nigel will be away throughout May walking the camino from Lisbon to Santiago de Compostela. The Archdeacon of Dorchester gave authority to the Rector of the Ray Valley Benefice, Rev. Steve Hayes, to perform the legal ceremony on behalf of the Bishop. This was done during Evensong on 22 April. A somewhat unique event but holding it in the company of fellow parishioners was a nice experience.
