Chalfont St. Giles is a picturesque and lovely village. Central to this vibrant village is the beautiful old Church dating from about 1150 which 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.
A Composer's Inspiration - an illustrated talk by Classic FM's first composer in residence, Patrick Hawes, to be held in the Parish Church. The Great War Symphony is a new choral symphony in aid of the armed forces charity, SSAFA to commemorate the centenary of the First World War. Patrick reveals how carefully chosen texts can develop into musical seeds and then into a symphony, using musical illustrations. The complete work will be premiered at the Royal Albert Hall in October and in New York's Carnegie Hall on 11.11.18, conducted by the composer. Book online (below) or call 01494 876602 to reserve tickets.
Keeping the Church and grounds looking neat and tidy means regular working parties to cut the grass and tackle jobs that need doing outside. If you could spare a little time either occasionally or regularly - whether you’re a ‘Friend’ or just love the village – please know that we would welcome you and value your help. Anyone is welcome to join in either once or every time.
Next working party 23rd June | 9.30am – 12.30pm. Please come and help or contact Peter Hogg 01494 874661 for further information.
