The Chiltern Gateway Project's work is focused around the villages of Chinnor and Aston Rowant in Oxfordshire.

The aims of this project are: to help the community understand God better through His creation, by personal experience and involvement, serving Him and our community through creation care projects. We partner with A Rocha UK, local churches and environmental groups that work in the Chilterns.

Some of our achievements include:
  • Spring Watch with Natural England
  • Environment Green Fair – Supporting Friends of the Earth
  • Greening Chinnor Campaign
  • Put up Bat Boxes at St. Andrews Church
  • Pulse (Environmental teaching at Churches Holiday Club from local primary school children)
  • Second Sunday – Wildlife Trust Working Party
  • Glow Wild in the Dark – Lantern Walk with Natural England and Chiltern Conservation Board
  • Chinnor Goes Wild: weekend environmental fayre including camping, dawn chorus and much more
  • Faith Goes Wild: open air service and self-guided spiritual walk

We plan several events each year, hold environmental services and our partners have regular work parties. We would also be happy to connect you with these if you would like to get your hands dirty. For more information or if you would like to be involved in any of these activities, please contact Ian Swaffield via uk@arocha.org.
