Prayer Group

Sundays 8:30am

Thank you to those who have joined in our Prayer Group which meet 'at home' on Sunday at 8.30 a.m.  Please let me know if you participated in this so I can let the ‘group’ know. 

If there is somebody in your circle of family and friends who could
benefit from our prayers, or if you have suffered a recent bereavement please forward the relevant name to the Parish Office.

Prayer Requests

At St. Giles there are opportunities for private and communal prayer, whether it is lighting a candle or praying with others on Sunday morning, we believe God hears our prayers and answers them as may be best for us.

If there are particular issues that you would like prayed for then please let us know. In particular we pray every Sunday for those who are sick and for those who have passed away
