Ickford Church dates from around 1170, and is small, quiet and beautiful.
Particular features of note are the variety of window styles, some exceptional furniture, and the Tipping Memorial, a design based on a famous memorial in Burford (see picture gallery).
Amongst our priests was Gilbert Sheldon (1598-1677) who gave his name to the Sheldonian Theatre. Our vicar is Rev David Kaboleh, who lives in the Rectory at Worminghall.
We are a small but active congregation. Half our services are lay-led, and we are lucky to have members skilled in a number of areas – preaching, music, flower-arranging amongst them.
Once a year we celebrate our Patronal Festival with a special service, and enthrone a child bishop.
The well-supported Friends Group, founded in 2006, regularly raises substantial sums for repair and enhancement of the church and grounds. More on the Friends can be found at http://www.ickfordchurchfriends.com/
There is always a warm welcome at St Nicholas, and we look forward to seeing you.
