          Clergy Leader 

 
Welcome to the website of
the Parish of Farnborough, in the London Borough of Bromley.

We hope that you will enjoy reading these pages about our church and community.

Over the past one thousand years countless people have come here to worship God, to celebrate, to mark the important events in their families' lives and to seek meaning, comfort, and strength from God along life's journey.

As we appreciate the physical beauty of St. Giles and learn about its long history, I trust that we will also remember that St. Giles and St. Nicholas have been, and are, living and active Christian communities seeking to witness faithfully to the saving love of Christ.  

Wherever you are, please remember our parish and its work in your thoughts and prayers.

Matthew J. Hughes, Rector

Parish Fete

To date it is still not certain whether we are going to be a position to hold this year's Parish Fete, this is because its organisation does require a good run in and currently we are not allowed to move far from our homes, let alone collect items to sell. We will, of course, update you just as soon as we know.



Revd. Bill Mullenger

Bill has decided not to renew his License with Permission to Officiate.  This means that Bill is going to be finally ‘retiring’ from all public ministry.  Therefore, it is with great sadness that Bill’s time of ministering amongst us at St. Giles will come to an end in March 2021.

Parish AGM

The Diocesan Office has notified us that this year's AGM must, as is usual each year, take place by the end of May, However there is a possibility that the central Church of England office may review this and give further advice about AGM's following any update in government guidelines.
