Cuddington | Buckinghamshire

Welcome to St Nicholas’ Church

Cuddington is one of five parishes in the Wychert Vale benefice.  The Rector is the Rev’d Margot Hodson who has the oversight of the parishes of Haddenham, Cuddington, Kingsey, Stone with Dinton and Hartwell and Aston Sandford.  She is supported by a full team of both clergy and lay members.  Click here for full details as well as for Church Wardens and the Benefice Office.

The running of the church is undertaken by members of the congregation through the Parochial Church Council (PCC) but the Benefice Office in Haddenham supports the administration of  weddings, funerals and baptisms.  Please click  here for full details of the PCC.

The congregation at St Nicholas
Congregations usually number more than 40 at each 10am service, although this can increase to 80 for Family Services.  The church electoral roll is made up of some 65 - 70 members of which over a third live outside Cuddington.  Clearly quite a number of people from outside the village are attracted to the type of services held here, and we believe they are encouraged by the friendly welcome of the congregation.

All are most welcome – please see the box below for normal services and just come along when you can. 

In the Notice Sheets prepared for each Sunday service there is a list of those for whom prayer has been specifically requested.  Anyone can request prayer when they have a need.  

The bringing up of children in the Christian tradition is very important to us.  At the 10 o'clock services facilities are available for special teaching for children.  In addition on the 4th Sunday in the month the Chattabox group meets in the village hall opposite and FT's (for school year 6 upwards) meets in the ringing chamber of the church. The groups may meet up with the main congregation afterwards in church. There is an area within the church itself provided for parents with toddlers.

Architectural Heritage
There has been a church on this site since at least the late 11th century and there is a record of the incumbents from 1086 on the south wall of the church.

There have been three major stages of development, which broadly cover the Medieval, Victorian and Modern periods and further details may be obtained in Architectural Heritage.

Parish Giving Scheme

St Nicholas' Church has recently joined the "Parish Giving Scheme".

It has many advantages for both individual givers as well as the church itself.

For more information on this very effective and efficient scheme please visit the website and call into church to pick up an envelope containg all the information needed from the table at the back of the church.

Use of the Church Building

The church building is not only used for Sunday worship, but is also available for other activities. Since the refurbishment the improvement in acoustics have made it a very suitable venue for musical concerts, and the introduction of audio/visual facilities have rendered it appropriate for a number of different functions,e.g. seminars, presentations etc. (Please click the Contacts tab)
