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.
