Oare has been the site of a Christian settlement since Saxon times and it was merged with Chieveley after the evidently important Priory was demolished in Henry VIII’s reign. The present chapel of St. Bartholomew was built in 1852 by the then Vicar, the Revd. J. E. Robinson, and John Betjeman wrote of being charmed by the small stone and flint building under towering cedar trees – one of which remains.
BCP Communion is celebrated on the 2nd Sunday of the month with annual harvest and carol services, at which the harmonium or electric keyboard is used to accompany the Chieveley choir.
St Bartholomew's Oare belongs to the East Downland Benefice
