Our Building

On the whole, everything is finished with the exception of some of the electricals. Watch out for events through the year where you are invited to come and see the building and share tea or watching a film with us.

Our Garden

How frustrating it is to have the Peace Garden planted only to then find out that it will need to be dug up to have a wire put along the back of it. As I write, the ground is solid due to the cold weather and there is a threat of snow so there will be no digging anytime soon! We have bought plants ready for other parts of the garden and also the Sweet Peas have been sown although they appear to be rather sluggish in germinating. The shed has been cleared out though and our gardening tools sorted and cleaned. Lots of spiritual comparisons and reflections made as we do this during the season of Lent. The Lenten Roses (Hellebores) are flowering well as are many of the bulbs. Even the Bluebells that were planted last year are beginning to poke through the ground.

Please come and see for yourself. If we are around, join us for a cup of tea.

The garden around the church has been registered with the Quiet Garden Movement.
It is available for use by the local community for quiet reflection throughout the year but we would ask that you respect the privacy of our neighbours.

To find out more about Quiet Gardens, visit the Quiet Garden website at
If you would like Rev. Jean Andrews to lead you through a Quiet Hour, which is the equivalent of Christian Mindfulness, Morning or Day then please contact her using the contact details above. However, the garden is not really in use for this at the moment.


Prayer Meeting
Mondays at 8.15pm - please phone church secretary to confirm venue.

Meets on Thursday evenings have ceased for Lent. However, we will restarting in April using The Bible Course for our study. Details of dates and times will appear asap.

Craft and Hobbies
Tuesdays, 2.30 - 4.30 pm at the Belshaw's residence! (Please phone for directions).
Please come & join us, no need for regular commitment, simply good company with refreshments.
Bring you own project or help with projects for the Shoebox Appeal. We will also teach people to knit, crochet or sew if asked.

The Church is one of the the local 'drop off & collection points' for the North Oxfordshire Community Foodbank. Donations of store cupboard food (with a 6-month use by date) are welcomed for distribution to families in need within our area. For further information contact the Missioner.

Please note that all five Charlbury Churches contribute but donations can be received from anyone.


If you would like to hire any of our facilities we should be pleased to hear from you. The Church is suitable for larger groups (chairs rather than pews) and there is a bright room at the side overlooking the garden that would be suitable for smaller groups. There are excellent kitchen and toilet facilities. There is disabled access to the building. Please contact the Church Secretary.

We do hope you will be in touch and look forward to meeting you.
