There has been a Church in Hinton since Saxon times with Rectors being identified from Sir Richard de Hynton in 1275.
The parish church in Hinton is both charming and interesting. The bulk of the building is 12th. century on a Saxon base. The rood screen and staircase to its loft are still in place, there are two effigies and some excellent memorial plaques including a 15th. century Latin one. The three bells are 15th.and 17th. century and were re-hung as part of the millennium celebrations. Both church and churchyard are well-kept with no major issues pending; there is a great fondness for the building even from non-churchgoers and any fund-raising for its upkeep is very well supported.
Services are warm and informal; there is plenty of laughter. A wide variety of services is liked, from the evangelical and liberal to the occasional 1662 (although not everyone likes the changes to traditional words that Common Worship has introduced).
