Since 1987, St Nicholas has been in a joint benefice with the parishes of Noke, Woodeaton, Charlton-on Otmoor and Oddington. In 2000 the three further parishes of Ambrosden, Piddington & Merton were added to create the Ray Valley Benefice of which we are now a part. The next United Benefice Service will be on Sunday 29 March in Ambrosden.
The other churches in the benefice are:
