FAITH AND WORSHIP


Midweek Services

Thursdays 10:00am
   Midweek Holy Communion.

Memorial Service

Sunday 7th November 11:30am

A memorial service will be held for Stan Eperon at 11.30am. This service will be in place of Matins as Stan and Pat often attended this service and will be followed by refreshments. Stan passed away at the height of the Coronavirus pandemic and numbers were limited to just five at his funeral therefore this service will be a much valued opportunity for his family and friends to gather to remember Stan, to celebrate his life and the wonderful contribution he made to St Giles. I do hope that you will be able to join us.

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.
