Parish Church - Chalfont St. Giles
In line with guidance from the Church of England, the Parish Church opened for worship at 11am on Sunday 12 July for the first time since March 22nd! We will continue to hold services of the word, simple services of prayer and the spoken word, each Sunday morning at 11am. Our numbers are limited by social distancing rules so to be safe, book your place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on the previous day, the Saturday. We are advised to wear masks during the service.
DO COME and enjoy some peace and quiet in the oldest most historic building in the village. The parish church has stood for 800 years and seen off the Black Death, Civil War, two World Wars and remains a focus for unity and faith in the heart of our community. Our team of volunteers keep the church open between 10am and 4pm between Tuesday and Saturday and on Sunday between 2 and 4pm’.
We have many resources now on the church website: www.chalfontstgilesparishchurch.com
