This 18th century church on the main Stroud to Cirencester road and beside the Thames - Severn canal has a wealth of Arts and Crafts features. The stained glass is in part by Edward Payne and its quality reflects that the area in which the church is situated is known as "Golden Valley". The carved reredos, rood screen and font cover are particularly of note. The vital resource of the River Frome, next to the canal, is reflected in the identifiable fish species around the font bowl.

Its close proximity to the road means that these treasures need to be kept secure, so access - apart from at service times - needs to be through contact with clergy or a Churchwarden.

The community of Chalford continues the artistic tradition with studios, galleries and a foundry.
It is a microcosm of the cross over from agricultural to industrial life. The small but loyal congregation maintains friendly, welcoming worship in the moderate Catholic style. It has good relations with its adjacent Church School and its intricate network of narrow streets and alleyways where donkeys used to be the main form of transportation.
