Over Norton is an unpoilt village about a mile North of the market town of Chipping Norton. The Chapel of St James is a small and unassuming building, with a pleasantly bright interior, on the edge of the Over Norton Park estate.

Our small, friendly congregation meets twice a month at 9:15 to worship together.  A service of Holy Communion (BCP) is celebrated every first Sunday of the month, and a service of Morning Prayer with hymns on the 3rd Sunday of the month.

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).
