Open to God – Open to All


The CHASE Benefice is a group of Church of England  parishes serving the villages of Chadlington, Ascott-under-Wychwood, Spelsbury and Enstone, situated in North Oxfordshire on the edge of the Cotswolds in the Diocese of Oxford.

We are a lively, inclusive church community that offers a warm
welcome to all, wherever you are on your faith journey. We are a thinking and reflective community that seeks to nurture the spiritual growth of people of all ages – questioning and exploring are
encouraged and supported.

As a church community, we come together to serve Christ and the wider communities in which we live, and we worship together as a Benefice each Sunday in a monthly pattern of services that moves around our four beautiful village churches.  We worship in a liberal and broadly central church style.  As well as offering services from Common Worship and the Book of Common Prayer, we offer Quiet Communions, informal all-age services, meditations, and more.  We also join together in smaller groups for study, reflection and discussion, to nurture spiritual growth through every age and stage of life.  Social activities are an important part of our life together, too.

The panel at the right of this screen gives details of this week’s diary. For the Benefice Diary and forthcoming events click WHAT’S ON.

We’re delighted that you’ve found us and hope this website will show you a bit about who we are, what we do, and, where to find us. If we can help you in anyway please do contact us.

You will find a warm welcome at any of our services and we look forward to meeting you.
