A lovely warm welcome once I braved the building works. Beautiful interior space for contemplation. Well kept, with the feeling of being a living part of Cirencester's daily life. Approachable church members only too happy to help if asked, but considerate enough to allow for introspection. I only had time for a quick visit but would love to return.

This church is, without doubt, a beautiful building. We are interested in medieval brass memorials and the church produces an informative booklet on its brasses. However, in the Lady Chapel, the powers-that-be have partially cover the brasses with prayer desks, thereby depriving visitors of the opportunity to admire these fantastic works of art. If the authorities want to prevent people... More

A lovely old church in a great place. Well worth a look inside at both the building and attending some of the special events that they hold.

Set behind its gigantic porch on the market place this great glass house of a church has it all. The chapels are very diverse and include one with a stunning fan vault. Beautiful Medieval glass and pulpit . Only let down by rather ordinary Victorian pews. The magnificent tower can be seen from afar.
