Little Rollright lies on the border of North West Oxfordshire, three miles from Chipping Norton and close to the ancient stone circle monument, the Rollright Stones.

Our church dates back to the 13th century, and lies in a quiet, unspoilt valley alongside the manor and its outbuildings. The church is unusually light with it's large clear windows. However, the church has no electricity and services are held once a month during the summer months only.

The highlight of the church year is the timeless Christmas Eve service, which takes place in an atmosphere of candlelight and draws many worshippers to its peaceful celebration.

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).
