St. Nicholas is mainly 13th-century, with a 14th-century tower and Victorian chancel. The exterior features notable gargoyles and, on the east wall, a stone carving of two green men. There is a ring of 6 bells which were re-hung in 2006.

In 2008 the Church was re-ordered which included the provision of an under-floor heating system, toilet and kitchen facilities, new lighting and a room in the Bell Tower and a purpose built screened area in the North Transept which is used by the local school during the week.

The Church is used as a concert venue.

Chadlington is part of the CHASE Benefice - a group of parishes serving the villages of Chadlington, Ascott-under-Wychwood, Spelsbury and Enstone, situated in North Oxfordshire on the edge of the Cotswolds in the Diocese of Oxford.

We are a lively, inclusive church community that offers a warm welcome to all, wherever you are on your faith journey. We are a thinking and reflective community that seeks to nurture the spiritual growth of people of all ages – questioning and exploring are encouraged and supported.

As a church community, we come together to serve Christ and the wider communities in which we live, and we worship together as a Benefice each Sunday in a monthly pattern of services that moves around our four beautiful village churches.  We worship in a liberal and broadly central church style.  As well as offering services from Common Worship and the Book of Common Prayer, we offer Quiet Communions, informal all-age services, meditations, and more.  We also join together in smaller groups for study, reflection and discussion, to nurture spiritual growth through every age and stage of life.  Social activities are an important part of our life together, too.

You can find out more about us at our website - - where you will find a list of upcoming services and events.  You can also find details about marriages, baptisms and funerals.

You will find a warm welcome at any of our services and we look forward to meeting you.
