Lent Sermons

A series of sermons on the Anglican Choral tradition

Music plays a central part in the life and worship of our Church.  Through music our hearts can be raised to God and we can leave a service feeling uplifted in mind and spirit. 

This series of sermons will give us an opportunity to learn about some of the most inspired composers of church music and to think about the important part that music plays in our life of faith and worship.

Prayer Requests

At St. Giles there are opportunities for private and communal prayer, whether it is lighting a candle or praying with others on Sunday morning, we believe God hears our prayers and answers them as may be best for us.

If there are particular issues that you would like prayed for then please let us know. In particular we pray every Sunday for those who are sick and for those who have passed away.

If there is somebody in your circle of family and friends who could
benefit from our prayers, or if you have suffered a recent bereavement please forward the relevant name to the Parish Office.
