About us

Our Parish consists of three Anglican churches, the Parish Church of St John Baptist, Holy Trinity Church, Watermoor and St Lawrence Church Centre, Chesterton.

Whatever we do we are here to worship, glorify and serve God always. This is the beginning of our vision.

We currently have a team of three clergy and two Lay Readers who take services at all three churches and visit the various care homes in the parish. Another member of the team is responsible for children and young people's work. Many members of the congregation take on all sorts of reponsibilities for activities and events across the parish.

Recently we have been raising considerable sums of money to renovate the Parish Church which now has a lovely limestone floor, to refurbish the Father Willis Organ to a world class condition, to clean and make safe the stonework on the South Porch and the church tower and to ensure the other churches in the parish, Holy Trinity and St Lawrence, are kept in a good condition. To this end the Friends of the Parish raise funds to help maintain the fabric of the buildings both inside and out.

Those who volunteer to help in the many activities are asked to undertake a DBS check. Forms and details are available from the Parish office together with the policies on working with children and vulnerable adults.

Our parish is also part of the wider circle of churches in the area which make up Churches Together in Cirencester.
