Here at St Giles, families and young children play an important role in the life of our church, and are valued members of our faith community. We offer a range of family friendly services, as outlined below, all held on Sunday mornings at 10am. Whether your family are able to attend weekly or once a month, you will receive a warm welcome, so please come and join us. We also run a monthly pram service "Lollipop Club" held during the week.
Our pattern of services changes throughout the month but, broadly speaking, is as follows.
First Sunday of the month
This is an informal, child friendly, child orientated service for all the
family. All children are in attendance throughout, as there is no Sunday
school. Refreshments are served at the end of the service and a toy
library operates in the St. Giles centre or in the summer months, in the
Sunday SchoolOur Sunday school is highly valued at St. Giles Church. It is led by a group of committed, hard working individuals who care for and nurture our children. Christian values are taught and children learn about Jesus, His life and teachings.
Sunday school children should be dropped off at St. Giles centre on your way into church. They are delivered back to you, in church, before the end of the service. If you wish, you may stay at Sunday school with them, in the St Giles centre, until you are happy that they have settled.

CrossbearersOlder children follow a specially designed programme entitled ‘Crossbearers’. Children start at about the age of 8, firstly with Junior Crossbearers, working through the sets of questions and going on to the Senior Crossbearers.
The children follow the questions at their own pace, so it is hard to say at what age they will finish.

Lollipop ClubIn addition to our pattern of Sunday services we hold a monthly ‘pram service’ for our very youngest children and their parents or carers.
Held in church on the third Tuesday of every month at 2pm, we offer craft, songs and prayer alongside tea and a chance to chat and meet other young families.

I do hope that you will be able to come along and join us at one of our services soon. We all look forward to welcoming you.
