In the centre of the vibrant village of Chalfont St. Giles is the beautiful Church. It dates from about 1150 and houses wall paintings from the early 14th century, 16th century brasses, a locally made clock and much more. It's a place of worship and community - a place for weddings, baptisms and contemplation.
The Friends help to support the preservation of the fabric of the church, its art and ornaments, environs and heritage.
Announcing the first Friends event of 2021! On Saturday 23 October at 7.30pm, come and enjoy Opera Anywhere performing The Mikado in the church!
The Mikado is one of the most famous and best-loved of Gilbert and Sullivan‘s operettas. Nanki-Poo loves Yum-Yum but she’s betrothed to Ko-Ko, the new Lord High Executioner. When the Mikado orders a beheading, Nanki-Poo and Ko-Ko try to come to an arrangement that doesn’t involve anyone losing their head!
Tickets are £20 for adults and £10 for under 18s. In the event that the show has to be cancelled as a result of government guidelines, the cost of the ticket and the booking fee will be refunded. A limited number of tickets will be put on sale initially and more will be added if circumstances permit. Buy your tickets here!
A wonderful small team keeps the churchyard in good condition and looking beautiful. If you think you might be able to offer help with mowing or other gardening jobs we would be grateful for your time and support. The dates for working parties are below. If you may be able to offer help on one or more of these occasions please use the Contact Us form at the bottom of this page and we will get back to you swiftly. Thank you!
