Welcome to the website of Stokenchurch Parish Church

Stokenchurch Parish Church (dedicated to St Peter and St Paul) is a rural village church – which means that almost everyone involved in the church comes from within the parish of Stokenchurch (which includes the hamlets of Water End, Studley Green and Beacons Bottom). We are a family church – which means we try to welcome people of all ages and from all backgrounds. Stokenchurch itself is a village at the southern end of the Chiltern Hills on the Buckinghamshire / Oxfordshire boarder.

Our services on a Sunday are normally at 9:30 am and we run a full Sunday school programme right through the year.. The 2nd Sunday of the month is normally a family service (with a communion at 08:00am); weeks 1, 3 and 4 are communion at 09:30am; week 5, when there is one, is Morning Prayer. Stokenchurch Methodists hold a monthly friendship group on a Saturday.

The church offers a welcoming and picturesque setting for baptisms and weddings.

The church has level access (eg for wheelchairs) through the West door for services.

The team rector of the South Chiltern Group of Churches comprising Stokenchurch, Ibstone, Cadmore End and Lane End is Rev Mark Ackford and he is currently being assisted by Rev Sue Morton.
