The mediaeval church of St Nicholas is not overlarge with seating for a maximum of 95 people. It has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and is lovingly cleaned and decorated. In 2005 repairs were made to the bell tower roof and the fabric of the building is generally in good repair. For the new millennium a band of ringers was formed and they continue to ring regularly.
We support the Bicester Food Bank. Tins, bottles & packaged foods brought to the Church are donated to the Food Bank, which supports those in need in Bicester and the surrounding villages. .
