St Giles is in Stanton St Quintin, Chippenham, Wiltshire. Our Rector is the Reverend Christopher Bryan.
The building dates from the twelfth to the fifteenth century, with major alterations in 1827, 1851 and 1888. It is one of 8 churches in the Gauzebrook group in North Wiltshire.
We have one service each Sunday. Our services are fairly traditional but relaxed and all inclusive. We serve refreshments after each morning service, to have some time for fellowship. We are a friendly and welcoming church to newcomers and supportive of the regular congregation. We have close links with the village school which is just opposite the church.
The church is popular with wedding couples from outside the village due to the proximity of the Stanton Manor Hotel and we love to meet the couples during their preparation for their weddings. if you want to enquire about a wedding (or a baptism) please click on the Contacts tab for the parish office details. See link on right, to Church of England website page about getting married in church.
We have a Festival Choir which rehearses for Christmas, Easter and Harvest. All are welcome to join.
We have several events throughout the year, to raise money and to have fun.
Our award winning Living Churchyard project maintains the churchyard as a wildlife haven. One of our regulars has set up a blog about this project - see the link on the right hand side. It is very interesting and informative. Please come along and join in on one of our working Saturdays. You don't have to do any work if you just want to find out more. Ivan, one of our coordinators, has received an award from Wiltshire Wildlife for his work with wildlife and particularly with the Living Churchyard project. See link on right hand side
We have a house study group and engage with the other churches in the Gauzebrook area to share our studies.

We are having discussions about making improvements to the church and would welcome any comments or enquiries from anyone. Please use the contact details provided.
