The Church Building

Address: The Church of St John the Baptist, Church Street, Bodicote, Banbury. OX15 4DW

Our church building is traditional in design with Victorian pews and some, relatively small, steps. There are a number of attractive stained glass windows.

The car park at Church House, adjacent to the church grounds on the south side, has recently been much improved. This now provides 12 parking spaces. There is also a dedicated disabled space to the rear of Church House, giving easy access to the path to the church.

At the main door there is one step down into the main body of the church – we have a portable wheelchair ramp for use there. If you are attending a service, please ask one of the stewards on duty if you would like that putting in place to help with access to the church.

There is a sound system and those leading the service use microphones so they can be heard in all parts of the church. The Induction Loop helps those who use hearing aids.

The overhead infa-red heaters are relatively efficient, although, like many old buildings, the church is unlikely to feel as warm as your own home – in the winter months it is advisable to wear warm clothing.

For most of our main acts of worship we have large-print service books available – again, please just ask if you would find one helpful for use during a service.

The church does not have a toilet but we try to ensure that the ones in Church House, a short distance across the churchyard, are available when the church is in use. Church House, which is accessed via the main door on the road side of the building, has uni-sex toilets, a disabled toilet and baby changing facilities. There is level access to the building and the toilets. (Further information can be found on this website under “Community” – “Church Hall”.)
