Coronavirus Crisis:

            Clergy Team 

Welcome to the website of
the Parish of Farnborough, in the London Borough of Bromley.

We hope that you will enjoy reading these pages about our church and community.

Over the past one thousand years countless people have come here to worship God, to celebrate, to mark the important events in their families' lives and to seek meaning, comfort, and strength from God along life's journey.

As we appreciate the physical beauty of St. Giles and learn about its long history, I trust that we will also remember that St. Giles and St. Nicholas have been, and are, living and active Christian communities seeking to witness faithfully to the saving love of Christ.  

Wherever you are, please remember our parish and its work in your thoughts and prayers.

Matthew J. Hughes, Rector

Weekly Update:

Updated 10rd April 2020

Grace and peace from our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all as we enter into this Holy Week. Let us once again walk with Christ through the way of the cross that we may celebrate his Resurrection on Easter Day.  Below I have put together a number of services and resources which I hope will be of help to you in these difficult times. 

Before we move onto the services I thought it would be useful to set out something of an introduction which I hope will also help you not just to cope with what is likely to be a very different Holy Week and Easter, but to see this time as a unique opportunity for spiritual growth and renewal .

Coronavirus and St. Giles:

Updated 17th March 2020

Dear Member of St. Giles,

As we are all aware the Government has issued some stringent guidelines and advice concerning the control and containment of the coronavirus. 

The advice states that we are to avoid unnecessary gatherings and that people over 70 are to self-isolate for 12 weeks. 

At 1.30 p.m. today the Archbishops of Canterbury and York issued advice that public worship be suspended until further notice.  Consequently, I and the PCC have taken the sad decision to suspend all services and social gatherings in the Benefice of Farnborough until further notice.
