Our Chapels:

St Amand & St John the Baptist, Hendred House
Chapel of the Blessed Virgin, Milton Manor

The Chapel of St Amand and St John the Baptist
The Chapel of St Amand and St John the Baptist
Hendred House, High Street, East Hendred

The Chapel of St Amand and St John the Baptist, located at Hendred House, hosts Friday morning Mass at 8.30am and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on Fridays between 3pm and 4pm.

The Chapel of St.Amand and St. John the Baptist in Hendred House was built or at least permission was given for it to be built in 1256 by Pope Alexander IV. After the Dissolution of the Chantries in 1547, the chapel itself was not used for mass until it was restored by George Eyston in 1687 but in December 1688 it was ransacked by some soldiers from William of Orange's army on their way from Hungerford to Oxford. The Chapel was re-opened in 1845 and remained the main Catholic mission until St.Mary's Church in East Hendred was opened in 1865.

The chapel remains in use up to the present day as a chapel for the Eyston family and is often used by the parish, notably for Friday mass, a weekly adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and the Watching before the Altar of Repose on Maundy Thursday evening.
