 Welcome and Thank you: We welcome our new Rector, Revd Josh Penduck, who was installed on Wednesday 23rd October. Revd Josh would like to thank everyone who has worked so hard to keep the church running during his six week absence. He also wishes to thank everyone who helped organise and prepare his licensing, as well as all those who came to the licensing of his wife, Shelley Penduck, to be Priest-in-Charge of St Paul’s Burslem. Revd Josh is delighted to be with you here at St Giles and St Thomas.

Remembrance Sunday: Please note that there will be no parking in the Churchyard for Remembrance Sunday on 10th November. Furthermore, the service will begin at 10am, not the usual 10.30am.
