Sea Sunday Service

Sunday 17th July 6:30pm

This promises to be a very special service and an opportunity for all of us to reflect on the vital role that our seas and oceans play in the sustaining of human life.

The service is going to be an interesting mix of poetry, scripture, prayer and wonderful music, followed, of course, by a glass of wine afterwards!

Readers and Sidespeople

Would you like to read a lesson at either the 11.15 a.m. or 6.30 p.m. services? If so please sign the list on the noticeboard in the Church porch.

We currently need two sidespeople for two evening services - 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. The job involves arriving before the service to welcome people, to hand out books and pewsheets, and to take up the offertory. Please sign the list on the noticeboard in the Church porch.

Thank you,


Bereavement Support

Have you recently lost your life partner, or know someone who has? St Giles runs two Bereavement Support Groups which puts people in touch with others who are going through the same experience, allowing people to access the help and support they need over the long term.

During the 15 years that the groups have been running over 150 people have benefited from this service. The groups are run in a friendly and professional way and there is no charge to attend. The groups are neutral spaces for people of all faith and none. For more information please contact Matthew Hughes on 01689856 931 or via email on
