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.

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.
