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.
We were delighted to welcome Squadron Leader Graham Laurie MVO RAF (ret’d) to
Chalfont St Giles in January to give an illustrated talk – The History of Royal Flying. Covering the early days of Royal Flying and the formation of The King’s Flight and The Queen’s Flight up to the present day.
Further Friends' events are under consideration for the autumn of 2020 due to current advice regarding social responsibility following the arrival of the Coronavirus.
Under normal circumstances the Church welcomes visitors to come and reflect, enjoy the beauty of the building and its artefacts, and to worship, but sadly the building is currently closed. The Church community cares about everyone, especially at this most difficult time.
For those who wish to participate in services and join the daily prayers, they are shared each morning via Zoom video links (or for individual households at 4pm). Please visit the Church's website for more information.
