There has been a church on the same site since the 13th century. It is a small, but beautifully proportioned stone building constructed in limestone rubble with ashlar dressings under a plain-tile roof, seating only 60 or so but is well cared for with extensive repairs made over the last 20 years. In 1995 we created a lovely stained glass window based on poppies.

Noke is one of 8 parish churches in the Ray Valley Benefice.
