altar at St Adeline's


Good to see that you have found our website! St Adeline’s is a beautiful little church with a very welcoming congregation.

It is located near the Manor House in Little Sodbury and has a history associated with William Tyndale, translator of the Bible into English in 1525. (mentioned in the BBC’s “Wolf Hall”, where Thomas Cromwell has a copy of his newly translated Bible)

We hold a service every Sunday at 6.00pm (with some special exceptions, check out the Service listings for full details). Our services are all using the 1662 Book of Common Prayer (BCP), with a BCP Evensong on the first 3 sundays of the month and BCP Holy Communion on the 4th Sunday of the month. If you like the old services come and join us one (or more!) Sunday(s).

The church serves the picturesque village of Little Sodbury at the foot of the Cotswolds and is on the Cotswold Way. It has the distinction of being the only church in the United Kingdom named after St.Adeline, an Abbess of the Benedictine order who died in 1125. It is one of our churches in the Sodbury Vale Benefice.

The church is always open and is visited by many walkers exploring the Cotswold Way on which it lies. Complimentary fresh water and squash is available at the back of the church, please help yourselves.

St Adeline’s at risk of closing

As with all churches we must support all our own operating costs. We have an operating deficit and need raise  more funds to remain open. To find out how you can help click HERE
