Welcome to the Parish of Cirencester


The Parish of Cirencester 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, 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.
