About Us

St Giles is a large, friendly Anglican church in the heart of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire.

The current building is largely Victorian in origin and was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott. The beautiful interior provides a breathtaking space for worship, or quiet reflection and prayer.


Sunday services

St Giles draws its congregation from many walks of life and Christian backgrounds. Our worship reflects this breadth, as we aim to encourage and help each other on our journeys of faith and reflect Christ’s love in our small part of the wider world.

We have a variety of services, from traditional to modern to all-age family services, as well as alternative forms of worship. You can find out about our Sunday services here



At St Giles we love kids! If you have children, they are more than welcome! We have many fun activities in our children’s church during our typical Sunday services. Once a month we have an All-Age Family Worship, with a lot of involvement from children. There are also events on for young children during the week including our Monday morning Praise and Play, as well as our Wednesday morning toddler group, Rainbow. You can find out about our children’s work here
