The historic Church of St. Peter and St. Paul is the Parish Church of Deddington. It is open daily from 8:30am to 5pm.
All are welcome to visit the churches and attend any of the services in Deddington or at St. John the Evangelist, Hempton.
|Every 10:30 Sunday service is broadcast live via ChurchTV.
We also share our Wednesday Eucharist at 10am and the 8am Sunday Holy Communion service and broadcast as many other services and events as we can throughout the year.
If you cannot join us in person then please feel free to join the service online.
[You may be prompted to install Adobe Flash to see the service.]
A FUN DAY OUT IN SEPTEMBERFor a fun day out with family and/or friends why not take part in the Ride and Stride on Saturday, 12 September? Joining in this sponsored event in aid of the Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust involves riding a bike (or a horse!) or walking round some of our village churches.
Here is the route we suggest and it can be shortened or lengthened: a nice flat ride or stride to Hempton, then downhill to the Barfords, up a bit to Bloxham and then back along the flat road to Adderbury, stopping at Milton on the way, before returning to Deddington by the gated road. This takes you to 12 churches or chapels. At each church stop friendly faces will supply you with drinks and other goodies. Hempton is known throughout the county for its scrumptious spread so you can aim to lunch there or you can take a picnic or call in at a pub. Alternatively you could spend an interesting hour or so striding round Oxford or Banbury churches.
This is an excellent way of contributing to the maintenance of our beautiful, historic churches and, in particular, of our own parish church where we all enjoy so many different events. Half of the money raised will go to your local church and half to the Trust, which has a fund to respond to special maintenance needs of any Oxfordshire church or chapel.
So do seriously consider joining in this year's Ride and Stride and contact Jane Green on 01869 337837 or email@example.com for more details and sponsorship forms.

FODC thanks the Deddington Parish Council for their 50% subsidy of the floodlighting costs.
Patrons of the Living are the Dean & Chapter of Windsor and the Bishop of Oxford jointly.
The Parish Church is also an important focal point for a variety of village activities such as choral and orchestral concerts, drama productions, music workshops, craft fairs and markets. Its amenities - including modern kitchen, disabled, ladies and gentlemen's toilets, a loop system for the hard of hearing - make it ideal for such purposes.
Refreshments are usually available at all such functions as well as after every 10.30am Sunday service.
