Chipping Norton Methodist Church is a friendly, flourishing church which meets every Sunday at 11.00 am for worship. Our ages range from one year olds to 91 years old and we are blessed to have a Junior Church who are actively involved in special services such as Christmas, Easter, Mothering Sunday and Harvest and their own Summer Celebration.
There have been Methodists worshipping in Chipping Norton since 1796 and our present building dates back to 1869. Our church is situated right on the centre of the town opposite the Town Hall and is an integral part of the community. It is booked by various local groups and societies including Local History, Horticultural, Astronomy Weightwatchers to name but a few.
There are four different house groups which you can join or our Singing Group which is brilliantly led by Carol English and meets on alternate Tuesdays. Food for the soul and also food for the body if you visit the cake stall at our popular weekly Wednesday Coffee mornings, from 9-30 am to 11-30 am which provide opportunities for great fellowship and are well supported by the community. You could also join our knit and natter group at the coffee morning where items are knitted for charity.
On the first Wednesday of the month we meet at 11.30 am to come together in prayer and every Thursday evening there is a prayer meeting. We also lead services at Care Homes twice a month.
Our Tuesday Fellowship meets every other Tuesday afternoon at 2.30pm with a guest speaker.
On the first Sunday of each month we host a drop-in tea and cake session in Church run by West Oxon W.I. at 2-30pm.
Every Thursday morning, we host a drop-in coffee session in Church run by Chatterbox on behalf of Age Concern. These are excellent opportunities for people who live alone to enjoy the company and conversation of others.
During the first weekend of December we are host to our annual Christmas Tree Festival which is very well supported and a great community event.
