The path to St Marys Church in Charlbury

You are very welcome to come and worship with us at St Marys and All Saints Churches.

Revd. Dr. Sally Welch

Charlbury

St. Mary’s Church, Charlbury is a lively, supportive and engaging Christian community, made up of all ages and inviting every type of person to join with us to discover more about God’s love for all people. As well as a variety of weekly services we have regular messy church, choral evensong, Ignite – contemporary worship and an informal evening service.

During the week join Font Cafe and Stay and Play or our monthly Grief Encounters and Memory Cafe.

Shorthampton

The peace of All Saints’ envelops you as you come through the gateway from a country lane: Welcome, pilgrim – this church has nestled for over nine hundred years in the mixed arable farmland that runs up the Evenlode valley.

O God, we thank you for this small church, in its beautiful setting among the fields, where people have prayed for centuries and been inspired and comforted. May we now find renewed strength from pausing here and take the peace of this special place with us wherever we are going next.  Amen
