We loved the welcoming feel of this large old 'wool' church. The stained glass windows are numerous and magnificent and give a light and airy feel to the building. There was a small shop and a couple of toilets within the building itself. Catch the organist practising and enjoy the melodious tones of the instrument!

A beautiful building, with truly inspiring architectural features. The organ is amazing and the stained glass windows are wonderful. Very helpful and knowledgeable volunteers. The Boleyn cup is beautiful and the memorials are poignant .

A warm and welcoming church with fragments of beautiful frescos on the wall and the most amazing alter. Take the time to sit and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and make sure you look up and the ceiling painted with stars. Volunteers are knowledgable and informative and enhance the experience. Well worth half an hour or so when exploring Cirencester.

The most impressive parish church in England- almost on a cathederal scale. Serene atmosphere and welcoming congregation.

My daughter was married here last year and the day was made more magical because of this wonderful church. The tower is also open several times a year. Worth climbing the steps to get a view of Cirencester

We visited here with our grandchildren aged 5 and 2 on 14th February 2014. Our grandson (5) is now finding it very interesting to explore old buildings/churches etc and was full of questions. Some of the church dates back to the 12th century and there have been several additions over the centuries with a rebuild circa 1520. A nice place... More

Very interesting to look around and several guides came to point out interesting features without being too pushy.

As you walk beneath the original town hall to enter this church you fell that you are passing through history into a wonderful church. We would recommend a visit and take the opportunity of contemplation
