St Mary’s is the local Parish Church of Princes Risborough and is situated close to the market square in the town centre.  St Peter’s is a delightful small church in the quiet hamlet of Ilmer and together we are part of the Church of England’s Risborough Team Ministry, Diocese of Oxford, UK.

We have a growing and thriving community, as we offer something for all ages and tastes in a variety of traditional and modern forms of worship.  We invite you to come and visit us for a service, a course, an event or if you are interested in our church’s history.

Within our website you will find more information about our ministries and life groups within our community or download our Welcome leaflet. They are all important to us and each is a different facet of of the commission God has given us.

Our church is open to visitors on Tuesdays 9am-12 noon, and Wednesdays and Thursdays 10am- 12 noon.  Please see our Calendar for more information on the full range of our activities and events.


Our worship includes services in the Anglican tradition, contemporary style worship and special services for children and young people.  To find out more, visit our Services page
