            Clergy Team 

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

Annual General Meeting

Sunday 18th October 4pm
St Nicholas Church Hall

Details of the format of this meeting will be confirmed as soon as possible.

Due to the current lockdown the Church of England legally extended the timeframe for the holding of Annual General Meetings until the end of October of this year. The current PCC will therefore remain in place until that time as will our Churchwardens. The Vestry Meeting when Churchwardens are elected will take place prior to the AGM.
