Welcome to the Schorne Team website

We bid you welcome to the Schorne Team - twelve churches arranged in nine parishes in the beautiful Aylesbury Vale. For hundreds of years men and women have visited these churches for all sorts of reasons - whether to celebrate and give thanks to God or to find comfort and solace in times of trouble. In a world which seems ever busier we hope that we may help you find God's peace - a sacred centre to sustain daily life.

Many of our churches are open through the day for private prayer and we run a busy programme of services on Sundays. If there is something that you think we may be able to do for you then please ask.

Sir John Schorne

Sir John Schorne (died 1314) was rector of North Marston in the English county of Buckinghamshire. He was a very pious man and was said to have effected many miraculous cures for gout and toothache.

During a drought, he discovered a well, the waters of which were reputed to have miraculous properties. His reputation for holiness was such that he is believed to have cast the devil into a boot. He is often pictured holding a boot with a devil in it, the origin of the child's jack-in-the-box toy. When he died, his shrine in the church at North Marston became a popular place of pilgrimage and he was regarded by many as a saint, although he was never canonised. His remains were later moved to St George's Chapel, Windsor. The Holy Well was renovated in 2004/2005 and may still be seen in North Marston.
