       Clergy Reflections 

 
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
