Welcome to the Parish of Cirencester

Our Parish consists of three Anglican churches, the Parish Church of St John Baptist, Holy Trinity Church, Watermoor and St Lawrence Church Centre, Chesterton.

If you are visiting Cirencester then time to see the magnificent Parish Church in the Market Place is essential. The church, as a ‘wool church’ is steeped in history and stands next to site of the old Abbey.

Recently the church has been renovated with a new floor and a refurbished South Porch. The Father Willis Organ has also been completely rebuilt and is now a world class instrument. Tours are available throughout the year and on special days the Tower is open to visitors who are prepared to climb the narrow steps to the top in order to enjoy a panoramic view over the town.

Whether you are visiting for a service, attending a concert, are admiring the architecture, are here to learn something of the history of the Parish, or simply to spend time in quiet, we pray that you will feel nearer to God and enjoy His peace.

A comprehensive list of concerts, exhibitions and festivals offers visitors a range of activities.

Those interested in working for the Parish of Cirencester, please visit our staff vacancies (jobs) page.
