Welcome to St. Mary's, Chipping Norton...

 ...where our mission is to share the life-changing love of Jesus, serving our whole community.

We are a lively Anglican Church, a short walk down the hill from the centre of our wonderful market town (click to see a map).

We are passionate about serving Jesus and growing together in our relationship with God as we worship, pray and learn together from the Bible. Our greatest desire is to see each life in and around our town transformed by Jesus' life-changing love as we reach out and serve our community, sharing our lives with the people around us.

We'd love you to join us at our Sunday services. Our main service of worship and celebration is at 10.45, when we run youth and children's groups every week so that the whole family can be welcomed and nurtured. Otherwise please join us for one of our weekly services. We'd love to meet you! 

During the week we meet in small groups, usually in a home for food, teaching, worship, prayer and friendship. Also if you'd like to look further into what the Christian faith is all about, we'd love you to join us on Alpha, so do check out the details of that on the website.

If you'd like to get more involved with any aspect of the life and work of the church, or if you simply want to find out more, please look around our website (which continues to be updated) and contact us.
