The United Parish of
Chinnor, Aston Rowant, Sydenham & Crowell

Family friendly page

A very warm welcome to all our Parish Families

St. Andrew's has just become much more child friendly - the picture on the right is of our fabulous new PEW BAGS. Thank you so much to our talented churchwarden Pat Haywood for making and creating these.

So now there really is no excuse not to bring your babies and young children to our services! Each pew bag contains books, soft toys, puppets, trains, cars and much more. Just help yourself to one on your way in and return it to the stand on your way out.

We also now have a smart new colouring table where children can express their artistic selves while being inspired by our beautiful music and church.
