Toy Library

The St. Giles Toy Library provides an opportunity for children to borrow good quality toys and to return them after a month.  Donations of new or nearly new toys are always welcome, as are financial donations for the purchasing of new toys.

The Toy Library is normally open on the first Sunday of the month to coincide with the All Age Worship service at 10.00.


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.
