Bodicote is a friendly and flourishing church serving the village and neighbouring areas, including the new Longford Park houses and parts of Cherwell Heights.  

The church of St John the Baptist has been a key part of Bodicote for over 800 years, supporting the community and allowing people to worship God through prayer and services. We welcome all people of all ages who want to join us or find out more about the Anglican faith.

The church holds regular prayer and discussion groups, special services for toddlers and children and young adults, and has strong links with Bishop Loveday Primary School.

We also organise a programme of both regular and one-off social and fundraising events, to which all are welcome. Full details can be found on our website, bi-monthly parish magazine and Facebook and Twitter pages.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
