St. Nicholas Eydon


The Parish Church of St Nicholas in Eydon is a fine example of a medieval Northamptonshire village church, with parts of it dating back to an early Norman construction of 1200.  The church was significantly restored in 1865 and is currently in a good state of repair.  The church’s square tower houses six bells which are rung on a regular basis. 
St Nicholas’ Church last had it own Rector in 1954.  It was subsequently joined with Byfield, and then Culworth before the benefice of Woodford Halse with Eydon was formed in 1975.  In 2011 they joined with Byfiled, Boddington and Aston to form the Five Ways benefice
The organ is a particularly good example, made by Walker, and believed to date back to 1838, but regrettably no regular organist, although the purchase of an electronic music hymnal largely compensates for this. 

Our regular worship pattern offers a service of Holy Communion at 11.00am on the second Sunday of each month, and a service of Cafe Church at 4.00pm on the third Sunday of each month.  All are welcome, all the time.

Eydon is part of the Fiveways Benefice and fourth and fifth Sundays are a time when we come together to worship, visiting each church in turn.
