St Andrew's Church, Hagbourne
Hagbourne parish church was built, or rebuilt, at the beginning of the twelfth century, and consisted then of a nave and chancel. Only a few walls remain from this time. The current tower was built in the mid-fifteenth century, and features a very unusual sanctus bell-cote, its original bell remaining in daily use. The pulpit also dates from the fifteenth century. The stained glass dates variously from the fourteenth through to the twentieth century. The octagonal stone font was added in the thirteenth century.
St Andrew's parish includes the villages of East Hagbourne and West Hagbourne and the hamlet of Coscote. St Andrew's provides a spiritual focus for all these communities, and also draws in many worshippers from Didcot. The Church is open every day from around 9am until about 4pm in the winter months and 5pm during the lighter months. Anyone wishing to use the Church outside these hours must contact one of the Churchwardens.
Our main Sunday service is at 10.30am every week. You are warmly invited to join us for worship at St Andrew's. On the 4th Sunday in each month, the 10.30am worship takes the form of a Family Service, with an all-age band and a talk suitable for all ages. On other Sundays, our 10.30am service is the Parish Eucharist, with hymns and music, a sermon, and Holy Communion. Coffee is available after all 10.30am services.
Other activities include:
We are always pleased to have new people to help with flower arranging, church cleaning, welcoming people to services (sidesmen), baptism visitors, Parochial Church Council (PCC), Sunday teas, church fête and the popular Christmas tree festival, plus children's activity days, occasional concerts and special events.
