Let Rev Josh and the team know you are with us by sending a message on which ever platform you chose to join in with our worship. There will be a link to open an order of service on the You Tube channel (in the service details on the left hand side of the screen in ” see more”).        We look forward to welcoming you.

In memoriam 

We remember our sister Beryl Bentley, who passed away in RSUH on 23rd July having been increasingly frail of late and spent some weeks in the hospital. We pray for her family and friends at this sad time.                                                              May she rest in peace and rise in glory.

Have a Go Art Show

Following on from seeing the children’s art work at the end of the Sunday service on April 26th, we decided to broadened the scope to include all our “congregation” (both regulars and new friends who are finding us online) and the fun and admiration of peoples’ skills and inventiveness continues.
The rule is that the ‘art’ is strictly for creative enjoyment and not a competition of artistic merit.
Any medium is acceptable: paint, collage, embroidery, drawing, wool craft, arrangements of found objects from  the house or garden, beautiful or interesting photographs taken during this time.
All people have to do is take a photograph of their creations with their smart phone and submit it by e-mail to
We hope this will be another way to keep all ages of the St Giles’ community interacting during this period of very limited social isolation and help to keep minds and hands occupied whatever the weather!
The theme for the week ahead is “Out and About”
Please join in, and let’s see the variety of ideas about what you come up with. The theme is a guide only: anything is welcome.
