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 08:30am); weeks 1, 3 and 4 are communion at 09:30am; week 5, when there is one, is Morning Prayer. We regularly hold joint services with the Stokenchurch Methodist Church.
The church offers a welcoming and picturesque setting for baptisms and weddings.
Currently the parish does not have a priest-in-charge, and the forming South Chiltern Group of Churches of Stokenchurch, Ibstone, Cadmore End and Lane End is in the process of appointing a team rector for the group.
