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.

Music at Services

St. Giles is one of only a handful of churches in the area that continues to offer a regular Evening service.  Despite significant changes in the make up of the congregation over the years we have still managed to retain a faithful congregation who enjoy attending this service and we continue to attract new people as well. 

The ambience of our building, its setting and history lend St. Giles to a variety of services and in particular that classic expression of Anglican life and worship which is a prayer Book Choral Evensong.

Toy Library

For a number of years we have run a Toy Library that coincides with our All Age Worship services.  Many children have enjoyed visiting the library discovering new toys, books, CDs and games.  We are now planning to adjust the contents of the library to accommodate the changing tastes of our young people.  So, going forward the emphasis will now be on CDs, books, games and craft equipment.  If you have any of these in A1 condition that you could donate to the library then please let me know.  We would also appreciate any feedback from parents and children re suitable content of the library.  To accommodate this more diverse content the Toy Library will now be called the Children's Library. 

Thank you, Matthew and the Children's Library Team - Debbie, Lisa, Justine

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