Chinnor Community Church, High Street, Chinnor, OX39 4DH

Churches United

The churches in Chinnor work together and hold united services at key points in the year (see calendar for details). These include services during the International Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Remembrance Sunday and the Combined Service on the Sunday following the Pulse Holiday Club.

Pulse Holiday Club

Every August we hold a holiday club for 3 days for 5 – 11 year olds. It is held in a Marquee that the community erects annually to house the Chinnor Flower and Produce Show. The club is run entirely by volunteers from the 3 churches in the village. Each day there are activities, games, songs and drama….and a small snack for the hungry! It is a good opportunity for parents to take a break while the children can play and learn in a safe and fun environment.

Easter Celebrations

Participants from all the Christian communities of the village parade a large wooden cross around the village on Good Friday morning. With readings, songs and drama taking place at intervals along the route, the cross is then carried up to a clearing on Chinnor Hill over-looking the village. The Good Friday Cross walk culminates with a social gathering over bacon butties and coffee in the Community Church hall. The chapel is also made available for quiet contemplation and prayer. Another short sunrise service takes place on the hill on Easter Sunday morning. During this service the cross is taken down.
