St John the Baptist, Windsor Parish Church. In the
shadow of Windsor Castle the church is open 7 days a
week for prayer and quiet reflection.  Many come in to light a candle to pray for someone special

With a beautiful painting
of the Last Supper and 1000 seat capacity and prime
location we host many Weddings and have a Concert
Season as well as our Sunday worship and other
special events.

We are a popular venue for visitors to the town and offer a free guide to point out the interesting features in the church, many of which come from the previous mediaeval building.
