FAITH AND WORSHIP


Midweek Services

Thursdays 10:00am
   Midweek Holy Communion.

Sunday Evening Services:

For a trial period from 16th January for about three months, Sunday Evening Services will commence at 4:00pm instead of the customary 6:30pm.

Quiet Carol Service

Tuesday 21st December 8:30pm

We are holding an alternative Carol Service specifically designed for people who are not particularly looking forward to Christmas, for those who find Christmas a sad and difficult period.  The service will be quieter and more reflective.  It will be an opportunity for people to light a candle, to sing a few quieter carols and to hear the Christmas message of hope and love.  It will also be an opportunity to give thanks to God for happier Christmases of the past and to seek his strength and comfort for the future.

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
