 Hambleden Parish Church

This beautiful 12th century cruciform church stands at the heart of one of the most attractive villages in the Chiltern hills in Buckinghamshire.

Hambleden Parish Church is first and foremost a home to a thriving family of  Christians who regularly gather here to worship God and to find inspiration for daily life. As a wonderful church set in a beautiful valley we also enjoy making welcome many hundreds of visitors annually. We would love to welcome you.
