Deanery Information - Introduction

This site is primarily for the use of church members in the Deanery. However, if you are a visitor then we hope that you will find something of interest in the pages.  Amersham Deanery is part of the Archdeaconry of Buckingham in the Diocese of Oxford. Our Area Bishop is the Rt.Revd Alan Wilson, and the Archdeacon of Buckingham is Guy Elsmore. The Deanery stretches from Chesham in the North down to Denham in the South and is a pleasant mix of rural and urban parishes. Being adjacent to the A40, M40 and M25 and on the Metropolitan Tube Line and the Chiltern Railways line from Birmingham to Marleybone, means that a great number of our parishioners commute into London or drive into the Thames Valley conurbations to work.
