Christ is risen, allelujah, allelujah!                    

He is risen indeed, allelujah, allelujah!!


In Memoriam

Over the last couple of weeks four beloved members of our church community and family have sadly passed away. 



       IRENE HEATON                                        DORIS JONES                                                JOHN WARD


and      RAY REYNOLDS.

All  were staunch members and supporters of the church, and John Ward was a very faithful servant of Christ and of St. Giles’ for so many years, as chorister, crucifer, PCC secretary, treasurer, decorator, “odd job man” and more, along with his wife, Anne and brother, Peter.

They will all be greatly missed.

Funerals have taken place at alternative locations, whilst current constraints remain in force.

Please hold them and their families close in your thoughts, on your hearts and in your prayers.

                                              May they rest in Peace and Rise in Glory

Have a Go Art Show

What fun it was to see the children’s art work at the end of the Sunday service on April 26th and, having broadened the scope to include all our “congregation” (both regulars and new friends who are finding us online) the fun and admiration of folks 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 social isolation and help to keep minds and hands occupied whatever the weather!
The theme this week is ” View from my window”
Please join in, and let’s see the variety of ideas about what you come up with.
