to Stowe Parish Church which is situated adjacent to Stowe House (the home of Stowe School) in the centre of the world famous Stowe Gardens run by the National Trust in Buckinghamshire, England.
The church building is more than 800 years old and information on the building, its history and the churchyard is available within this website.
We are an active parish church serving Stowe, Dadford and the surrounding area. We are part of the Benefice of North Buckingham with Stowe and Rev. Hans Taling is our rector.
We aim to be a warm, welcoming church serving our parishioners and all who come to visit us, including staff and pupils of Stowe School, and visitors to the National Trust Gardens.
The Carol Service will be held on Wednesday 20th December at 7pm. Please stay after the service for mulled wine and mince pies.
You are welcome to pop in to see the church when you are visiting the National Trust's Stowe Gardens.
If you are attending a service in church or wish to drive to the church (without visiting Stowe Gardens) then please use the main entrance for Stowe School where the security team on the entrance gate will be able to direct you. General directions on how to find us by car can be found here.
Please contact the benefice administrator (Val Rickwood) for enquiries about Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals.
ALMIGHTY God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness, and put upon us the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life, in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious Majesty, to judge both the quick and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, now and ever.Amen

BLESSED Lord, who hast caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant that we may in such wise hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that by patience and comfort of thy holy Word, we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which thou hast given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ.Amen
