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

Public Worship for January

It is with sadness that I have to announce that all 'in person' worship at St Giles will be suspended throughout the month of January. This is in response to a directive from the Bishop of Rochester who has offered his support to the Mayors request that all places of worship in London be closed during the height of this current virus surge.

Lent Course

Lent is early this year with Ash Wednesday falling on 17th February and Easter Sunday on 4th April.  It is not going to be possible to hold our usual ‘in person’ Lent Study course.  However, I still plan to offer a Lent Course and groups that have been meeting via Zoom will be welcome to use it if they wish.
