St. Mary's is the Anglican church for Charlbury and seeks to proclaim and live the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our community.
All Saints' Church Shorthampton, set on a quiet lane not far from Charlbury, is a mixture of Norman, Gothic, and Georgian. Its main interest, apart from the quiet churchyard views across undulating hills and farmland, lies in its wall paintings.

Candlemas service recording
We must apologize to regular listeners of the latest service recordings for a break in transmission over the last few weeks. This has been due to technical difficulties of one sort or another which we hope we have now resolved. This service is now resumed with this latest recording of the Candlemas service held this Sunday (Feb 2nd) We hope you enjoy. If you were unaware of these recordings, you can find them under Services / Latest Service.
Children's Society Box Collection
On Saturday morning, 1st February, St. Mary’s Church was a hive of activity. It was a time for all those who had collection boxes for the Children’s Society to have them opened and the contents counted. It was also a time to gather, meet friends, have a coffee and buy a gift from the Bric a Brac or Phoenix Cards stalls.
