The Risborough Team ministry in the diocese of Oxford links four parishes centred around Princes Risborough, on the edge of the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire. It came into existence in 1998 and includes the parishes of Princes Risborough, Monks Risborough, Bledlow and Lacey Green. It exists to promote:
- Mutual support
- Collaboration in Christian training and development
- Joint ventures in worship and mission
- Clergy cover.
The Team Forum is made up of lay and clergy representatives from the four parishes and meets quarterly. The Team Clergy meet fortnightly for prayer, planning, mutual support and encouragement. There are regular team services and also an exchange of clergy officiating at the Eucharist service in each of the parishes on a regular basis. The annual confirmation service is also a team event.
