Worship at Odell church is bible-based with a friendly and diverse congregation. Visitors are always welcome.

Mid-week groups include Meeting Point (ladies fortnightly bible-study) and Pilgrims (informally exploring aspects of the Christian faith).  Monday Club for children aged 5-8 years meets after school in term time, and FUSION our local 'Messy Church' event including crafts, story, informal worship and a two course meal, meets on the 3rd Monday of the month after school at Harrold United Reform Chapel (organised by Churches Together in Harrold & Carlton with Odell).  Our popular Cafe-in-the-Tower is normally open on Bank Holiday weekends (excluding the first May Bank Holiday) offering conducted trips up the tower to enjoy the panoramic views.  For further details of these and other events through the year, follow the link to latest church news on

The church itself is a building of great historical value, dating from the fifteenth century and built in the perpendicular style. The records of the incumbents date back to 1220, suggesting that this was also the site of an earlier church. Of particular interest, the church houses several windows containing ancient stained glass (recently repaired), a fine fifteenth-century rood screen and - of more recent history- a memorial to Lieutenant Richmond who died when the R101 airship, flying from Cardington, south of Bedford, crashed in 1930.
