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.

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.


FAITH AND WORSHIP


Midweek Services

Thursdays 10:00am
   Midweek Holy Communion.

Singing at Services

Not being able to sing or enjoy listening to our excellent choir has felt like a real loss during this pandemic.  Music is such an important part of our worship and for many of us it is one of the principal ways in which we encounter the Divine. 

Although the congregation is still not permitted to sing there will be hymns for us to ‘sing in our hearts’, recorded music from various choirs to enhance our worship at both the 10.00 a.m. and 6.30 p.m. and the chance to hear our newly refurbished organ through Clive's playing.

We are hoping to recommence services at 11:15am in September, if circumstances permit.

When singing is allowed once again, it will be a joy to restore this service to the regular pattern of worship.

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.
