St James Nether Worton is an inclusive church, and all will receive a warm welcome. It is united with Over Worton, and pastorally associated with the parishes of Westcote Barton, Steeple Barton, Duns Tew, and Sandford St Martin. Officially a chapel of ease, St James is a beautiful and lovingly cared for church in a small village tucked into a valley. The church is joined to the old schoolhouse, which in turn is joined to Church Cottage. There are memorials in the church to the Wilson (19th century)and Schuster (20th century) families. High on the tower is a stone bearing an inscription that seems to read "Robert E Parsons 1630". On the interior northwest wall is an unfinished sketch of a copy of Raphael's "The Hill of Calvary". High on the interior west wall are the Royal Arms. The church is open for prayer and meditation. Ideal for silent sitting and centering prayer.
