Old Church Stoke is a village in the Community of Churchstoke in Powys, Wales. Until 1974 it was in the county of Montgomeryshire.

The name, as a distinct settlement within the township and parish of Churchstoke, was first recorded in the mid 16th century.[1] The current village includes several timber-framed farmhouses of the 17th and 18th century, the former Oak Inn from the same period, and a 19th-century Primitive Methodist chapel.[1]

There was formerly a holy well, or "Lady well", in the village, which was dressed with flowers and rushes.[2]
