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

Parish Fete Cancelled

It will not be possible to hold this event this year, as there is simply not enough time or certainty to do it justice. We will be discussing at the PCC possible alternatives and when we might be able to hold a similar event later on in the year. .

New Church Bells

It has been brilliant to see the installation of two new bells at St Giles.  Well done to Nick Wilkins and the team for all their hard work in helping with the installation. 

We are all looking forward very much to hearing them rung, along with our existing six bells.
