Welcome to the parishes of East Hendred, West Hendred, Ardington and Lockinge

Welcome to the Christian community here in East and West Hendred, Ardington and Lockinge!

We believe that the Gospel is for everyone and we look forward to welcoming you in person in our ancient, peaceful and beautiful churches, all of which have stood witnessing to the Christian faith here, at the foot of the Berkshire Downs, for over seven hundred years.

To be part of that is to glimpse ourselves within "that multitude which no man can number whose hope was in the Word made flesh" and to know that we travel through life, never alone; always with God's presence and his love; always with the companionship and friendship of our fellow travellers.

Come and join us! We'd love to see you. In the meantime, we hope that these pages may be helpful to you and give you a taste of what the Christian community here is about.

The Revd Elizabeth Birch
