Welcome to STOWE PARISH CHURCH situated in the world famous Stowe Landscape Gardens run by the National Trust in Buckinghamshire, England. The church building is more than 800 years old, but we're not a museum! More information on its history and the building is here. We are an active parish church serving the surrounding area. Vehicular entrance is through Stowe School not the Landscape gardens.
Detailed maps are here.
We aim to be a warm, welcoming church serving our parishioners and all who come to us, including staff and pupils of Stowe School, and visitors to the NT gardens.
We are currently in an Interregnum so please contact the Church Wardens for Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals

People are also asked to use hand sanitiser on entering and leaving the church.
