Chastleton is home to around 150 people, and is situated on the edge of Oxfordshire, near the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire borders. Our church dates from the 12th century, although the bell tower, home to a ring of six bells, was added later. The church still has medieval wall tiles and traces of medieval wall paintings.

Next to the church is the National Trust property of Chastleton House, built in the 17th century by a prosperous wool merchant. Chastleton House has no tea-rooms of its own, so volunteers at the church put on a café service with tea and cake for visitors, of which there are a large number.

Communion services are held on the first Sunday of each month, and at special times, such as Easter and Christmas. Visitors would be most welcome to join us for any of these services.

Our church is part of Chipping Norton 'Benefice' along with 8 other churches: in Chipping Norton, Kingham & Churchill, Over Norton and 'The 5 Villages' (Salford, Little Compton, Cornwell, Chastleton, & Little Rollright). 

*Please note there is no regular service in April, as Easter services will be held later in the month instead.*
