A very warm welcome to the webpage of the United Parish of Chinnor, Aston Rowant, Sydenham and Crowell. I hope that you enjoy your visit browsing through the various tabs. The four churches all have their different histories and characters, and are all worth visiting in person as you can see from the photographs, however you’ll find all you need to know regarding services times and styles, activities and community involvements at your fingertips as you explore. Although Chinnor is officially a village, this belies its size and the Church community is thriving and extremely busy. Please say a prayer for the life and worship of the whole community before you leave this page and I hope to welcome you here in person soon.

May God richly bless you as you travel onwards, keeping you and your loved ones safely in the palm of His hand.

The Rev’d Maggie Thorne (Rector)

The United Parish extends a very warm welcome, to our new curate, the Rev’d Dr. Jacky Barr. Here is a picture of her on her ordination day with our Rector.
