ODST opens new Wantage office

ODST central staff and trustees welcomed the addition of some new office space for the central team, with an opening ceremony held on 7 November.

The new office is located in Wantage, at the Community of St Mary the Virgin (CSMV). As part of a refurbishment project, CSMV commissioned the office space to provide a home for educational organisations. A conference centre is also planned to open in 2020.


The Wantage office will be a second site for the ODST central team, who will continue to work out of Church House Oxford (CHO) in Kidlington as well, though in smaller numbers. The team will be available for meetings in both venues.


Opening ceremony

ODST and CMSV held a joint opening event on 7th November, with trustees and staff from both organisations. A service in the chapel was followed by a tour of the refurbished areas and room blessings, before ODST CEO, Anne Dellar and Chair, Kathy Winrow, cut the ribbon to officially open the ODST office.


Anne Dellar, CEO, ODST said:

'We are excited about beginning this new chapter in the life of ODST and look forward to seeing colleagues in our new office in due course. We are very thankful to the Sisters, trustees and staff at CSMV for the opportunity to create a new home for ODST in such a beautiful and peaceful setting.'
