ST GILES FARNBOROUGH - EVENTS, NEWS AND NOTICES

Young Peoples' Discussion

Sunday 24th September 4.30 - 6.00pm  

Belief in a God of love in a world of suffering. Are the two compatible?

Our discussion will give us an opportunity to explore and discuss one of the most important issues for people of faith and none.

As we experience the world, we see many instances of suffering and cruelty. How do we reconcile this with the Christian belief in an all-powerful, benevolent God of love?

Our discussion will centre on the philosophical and biblical approaches to this question with plenty of space and time for our own thoughts and experiences of the matter.

I do hope that you will be able to attend and do feel free to bring a friend along if you wish. Refreshments from 5.50pm onwards.

For adults who are interested don’t worry, I am thinking we could look at this during Lent next year.

The St. Giles Organ Update

The organ plays an important part in the musical life of St. Giles. Pipe organs can last for hundreds of years but can be expensive to maintain. Around every 30 years they need fairly substantial cleaning and restoration work and the time for this has come.

The opportunity has been taken to investigate the possibilities for changing to a digital instrument - the cost of a new one would be less than the cost of work to the pipe organ. We have looked at various manufacturers in their showrooms, in other churches and have tried 3 different makes in St. Giles and have concluded that a change from a ‘real’ instrument is not right for St. Giles at this time.

The PCC has therefore agreed unanimously that we should go down the route of keeping - and improving - the pipe organ.

More of this in the coming months...........
