St. Andrew’s, Chinnor

St. Andrew’s sits at the centre of what is now a large village. There is a nice welcoming notice outside., explaining that the church is open each day.

Inside a light had been left on by the door and there are greetings cards and a good guide book for sale. The guide is a good one, with some nice clear line drawings and text which emphasises some of the stories that surround both the church and village. It is much better than some I have come across.

St. Andrew’s is an interesting church to visit. There is much to see here and it is obviously well loved and well cared for. There are some large pictures hung around the church. These have their own story, being full size sketch paintings for the North Rose Window at Westminster Abbey. They date from the eighteenth century.

DSCF8841There is a votive stand to use as well as a book for prayer requests as well as a prayer leaflet to use. Also there are a stock of the Diocese of Oxford leaflets on the Christian faith. A display of some Harvest work by the local school can be seen as well as a good one about the Village Centre – a cafe and meeting place which is very well used and just around the corner from the church.

DSCF8842There is a toilet at the back of the church. Only 24 people were entered in the visitors book this year.

All in all St. Andrew’s is an interesting church to visit and I rate it as very good.

In the chancel there is are some brasses which have been removed from the floor in order to protect them.
