          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

Events and Notices:

Public Worship to resume

Public worship can resume once the lockdown ends on Wednesday 2nd December.  Please remember that a booking system has been set-up to manage the numbers able to attend each of the Sunday and Thursday morning services, as well as meet the Government's Track and Trace requirements.

Advent and Christmas

The recorded Advent Carol Service is available now.  Follow the YouTube link above.

Plans are in place for Christmas and can be viewed on the Faith and Worship page, with the proviso that Government guidelines might well change or prohibit them.  In true Advent fashion please stay alert to any updates.

Toy Service

This year we will not be able to hold our annual Toy Service which is a time when people donate toys and gifts to struggling families across the Borough via the work of Welcare. 

However donations may be made direct to Welcare or to the PRUH online donations page at Amazon.

Toilet Consultation

The unanimous conclusion from the PCC is that a toilet cannot be provided within the church building, and that future attention should therefore focus on the redevelopment or rebuilding of St. Giles Centre.
