Charity in Focus:

CRISIS started off as Crisis at Christmas, but now it aims to provide help and support to homeless people throughout the year. As the weather gets colder and we put our heating on and draw the curtains against the cold and dark evenings, let us spare a thought for those who are sleeping in doorways.

          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:

Suspension of Services

We are again in lockdown and the Church is closed for all services, except for funerals, until Tuesday 2nd December, if not longer if the lockdown continues beyond that date.

Advent and Christmas

Our plans for Advent and Christmas have had to be revised in the face of the new lockdown, my plan is to produce an online service for Advent Sunday which is 29th November, more information will follow. 

I am hoping that our plans for Christmas will continue to hold, but obviously this may need to be revised in the light of Government guidelines as to whether the lockdown is extended past 2nd December.

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.
