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.

There is always a warm welcome at St Nicholas, and we look forward to seeing you.
