St Nicholas Oddington

Update - March 2016

During the night of Monday February 1st, the copper covering was stolen form the north nave roof leaving it open to the elements. Temporary emergency repairs have been carried out but unfortunately our famous Doom painting has suffered some damage.

Full repairs cannot yet take place due to:

a) the lengthy drying out process, and

b) the success of our application for grants to meet the costs, likely to be thousands of pounds.


We regret, therefore, that the building will have to remain closed until the summer.



Oddington is in the fortunate position of having two churches. The more modern and central church (Holy Ascension) is being internally altered to provide a more flexible space for worship, and many activities which will benefit all ages in the benefice and village of Oddington. (Please see Parish Page ) St. Nicholas Church is the older church, dating from 11th century, and famous for its Doom paintings which attract visitors from far and wide. It is unheated and unlit artificially, yet hosts wonderful summer services and candlelit Christmas occasions.


Services at St. Nicholas are limited to services in the summer and St. Nicholas' Day and Christmas Eve services which are candle lit. Please see the links below to find out about forthcoming services and events.
