Found along Castle Street and Chesterton Road and opposite Kettle’s Yard, whilst not the most visually striking church in Cambridge, St Giles’ offers a lot more into terms of community outreach and social projects. You’ll often see these programmes ongoing in the Church grounds or billed on flags and signs outside. The Church is Gothic style and Church of England by denomination. I regularly walk past as it is not far from Bridge Street and the central hub of Cambridge. It is quite a significant venue for the locals if not a mainstream, busy tourist attraction.

The present church is of late 19th century constructing replacing its Norman predecessor completed in 1092. It sits atop a hillock almost directly opposite the entrance to Kettle’s Yard. It has both an Anglican and an Orthodox Romanian congregation. It is also the venue for the occasional concert and is the headquarters of the Cambridge homeless project. Its striking feature is a sequence of stained glass windows celebrating the lives of saints and other worthies such as Alfred the Great from the Dark Ages to the nineteenth century on a century by century basis.

The church is small and very lovely with a small flower garden. Me and my girlfriend felt like home close to our families when we step inside, it just feels right. A blessing to have such places in Cambridge. God bless everyone.
