Amazing church

Well worth a visit. A new Bishop before he is enthroned has to meet the Dean here before they go up to the Cathedral.

This beautiful little church is just off the High Street and is well worth a visit to enjoy its beauty and wonderful calm atmosphere away from life's hustle and bustle.

Many of the really old architecture has been unfortunately updated, but you can see remnants of the Normans. See the plague that lists the gifts to the poor - unique donations.

Another accidental discovery - beautiful respite near the Cathedral. Quiet and cool on a hot day, peaceful and stately, calm and spiritual. Highly recommend a momentary stop to your day - near the buttercross.

A tiny, peaceful and peace-filled space in the bustle of a busy Saturday in Winchester. We loved the patchwork altar-cloth. Thank you to all who work hard to care for this church.

A beautiful church that has lots of leaflets on show and don't forget to sign the visitors book and say a prayer in the church itself.

My husband and I visit this tiny church every winter when we are visiting the Christmas Market or when we have visitors. It is tucked behind the Buttercross, this delightful, warm church is a must.
