          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.

Public Worship

After a very long time, I am delighted that finally we are able to meet at St. Giles without social distancing or the need to pre-book. 


St. Giles Organ - Opening Concert

Saturday 25th September 7.30pm

After so much time and money had been spent, not to mention the inconvenience caused by months of scaffolding in the church, it seems such a shame that over the last year so little has been heard of the re-built organ. On the other hand, had the works not been carried out it is quite likely that the lack of use caused by the lock-downs would have resulted in the instrument becoming unplayable.

Harvest Supper and Barn Dance

Saturday 2nd October
The Harvest Supper will be a two course meal (bring your own drink) accompanied by music for barn dancing.

Tickets will be on sale in September, subject of course to any prevailing Covid restrictions at that time.
