The parish church of St Mary the Virgin served the old village of Easton Neston which was removed in the 18th century. 

The parish today includes the stately home called Easton Netson, its farms, the hamlet of Hulcote, and the new Shires estate on the northern edge of the town of Towcester. 

The church building is a beautiful early mediaeval church with a tower and inside are some superb monuments of the Fermor-Hesketh noble family which owned the surrounding estate from the sixteenth until the early twenty-first centuries. They include the life-size alabaster tomb of Sir George Fermor and his wife Elizabeth. 

Regular Services are once a month at 6pm on the first Saturday of every month (except the Patronal Festival in September), Easter Eve, and Christmas Eve. 

Also, there are regular, and popular, family services throughout the year: An Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Day, a Treasure Hunt in September, a Christingle Service at the beginning of Advent, and a Crib Service on Christmas Eve. Teaching and activities are suitable for young children, but enjoyable by all!

Occasional services include weddings, baptisms, funerals, and musical services. 

The parish is part of the Tove Benefice.
