St John the Baptist, Bodicote, Friday 12 May 2023

The Parish Church of St John the Baptist has been a key part of Bodicote for over 800 years, supporting the community and enabling and encouraging people to worship God through prayer and services. The church serves a parish with a greatly increasing population that includes the original centre of Bodicote, together with much of Cherwell Heights and the new housing on Longford Park.

On Friday 12 May, we returned to play a fund-raising concert and as with last year, the Vicar, The Revd Sarah Sharp, Curate Revd Nick Fielden and ticket sales supremo Helen Hall made us feel very welcome. It was a joyful evening of singing together and the event raised £549.50 to help sustain the ministry of the church. Our thanks to Sarah, Nick, Helen and the whole team for a super evening, we’ll look forward to coming back again in 2024!
