St. Andrew's Church Chinnor

A very warm welcome to St. Andrew's Church, Chinnor.

The land on which the Church is built is said to have been a holy site since Saxon times. The earliest evidence of a church building on the site is from the 13th Century.

We hope that you come and visit our beautiful church and have time to look around at all its wonderful features and soak up the prayerful atmosphere here. If you are new to the area we look forward to welcoming you to our vibrant services and events that take place here in the heart of the community in Chinnor.

The Eucharist is celebrated every Sunday at 8am and at 10.00am with the exception of 10am on the 2nd Sunday. We have a Taize service on the 2nd Sunday each month at 6.00pm, which offers the opportunity of quiet and reflective worship using the chants of Taize. Evensong is at 6.00pm on the 4th Sunday of every month.

See the 'Service times' section of the website for more details and the 'News' section for any variations.

Everyone is very welcome to attend any of our services but families might particularly enjoy the service on the 2nd Sunday of every month at 10.00am and the Tea 'n' Toast, Bread 'n' Wine service on the 4th Sunday of each month.

Children might also enjoy: Children's Sunday Club at 10.00am on the 3rd Sunday of every month at the church hall and 'Toddler Church' every Thursday during term-time at 11.00am.

Please say a prayer for the life and worship of this community.

May God richly bless you, keeping you safely in the palm of his hand and may you return from your visit to our church enriched and refreshed.
