Welcome to the Parish of Cirencester
If you are visiting Cirencester then time to see the magnificent, refurbished, Parish Church in the Market Place is essential. 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.
Collation and Induction of Revd Canon Graham Morris
On Saturday 22nd September the Reverend Canon Graham Moris was installed as Vicar of Cirencester. In the packed Parish Church, the Bishop of Tewkwsbury and the Archdeacon of Cheltenham welcomed Canon Graham and his wife, Angela, to the parish.
Afterwards there was a reception in the church where Cirencester parishioners mingled with those who had travelled from Graham's previous parishes on the Isle of Wight.
Canon Graham is looking forward to to being involved fully in the life of this parish and its three churches.
