All Saints Church, Middleton Cheney, is one of a group of eight churches to the east of the town of Banbury. It is part of the Church of England, the largest church grouping in England. At All Saints we have a range of services,
Holy Communion twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Sundays and a monthly mid-week Communion. On the other two Sundays the services are more informal. Children are welcome at all our services and we have a baby and toddler friendly area for them to enjoy. The All Age service on the third Sunday of the month is especially aimed at children and we run Messy Church regularly, which is aimed at children from 1 – 10 (though babies are very welcome and older children encouraged to help with the activities). There is also a weekly service during term time for babies and toddlers with their carers. Check out the ‘Services’ page for more information. We run regular community events, including a weekly coffee morning, and provide a venue for some Village Community Events.
Our Rector, Rev Nick Leggett, is helping us to develop new ideas for our work with the wider community and with the other churches locally. This autumn we will be playing a leading part in the events to mark the end of the Great War and starting a uniformed group for young people. We aim to keep you informed of all that goes on at All Saints and this website is a major platform for disseminating information.

Welcome to All Saint's Church, one of six Anglican (Church of England) churches in the Chenderit Benefice in the Diocese of Peterborough. The Grade 1 church building dating from about 1300 is famous for its collection of Burne-Jones windows described by Pevsner (1951-74) as 'a place of great enjoyment, the Holy of Holies of Morris glass' and two painted ceilings designed by William Morris. The font is 15th century and in the churchyard there are Table Tombs and the bodies of 46 Parliamentarian soldiers buried after the battle of Middleton Cheney in 1642. Inside the church there are toilet and kitchen facilities, a place for coffee and refreshments and a children's area. Seating includes both comfortable chairs and pews and worship takes place on a dais in front of the Rood Screen.
