We are  an inclusive Anglican church where you are always welcome.

We are  a place for people of all faiths and none to be still; a place to come close to God, a place to reflect and be peaceful and to BE.

St Giles is a holy Christian  place to worship together and a place to enjoy the company of others.  We offer a rich variety of Christian worship.  We also offer a retreats programme through RUACH to promote spiritual development.

As a church,  we dedicate our lives to the love and praise of God and the love and service of our neighbour, seven whole days, not one in seven.


Through our baptism each of us has a ministry in the body of Christ and we encourage each other to find and exercise that ministry. Father Jason is a diocesan vocations adviser.

We support our  local Armed Forces and the Armed Forces Covenant. Similarly we support St Giles Hospice.

We have a strong ministry in supporting families  for baptisms, weddings, blessings and funerals.


God accepts each of us as we are and we in turn accept each other and welcome all who come to share our worship. We believe that, in Christ, there are no divisions and we seek to break down barriers between us and to celebrate the richness of the diverse and multi-cultural world-wide Anglican Church of which we are part.

With all our faults and weaknesses, qualities and joys,  we are a family and a home, offering friendship and support, open to all who live in our parish and beyond.

May God’s blessing be upon you.         


We are a wonderful church for weddings and close to many quality wedding reception venues. Fr Jason will support you in making this amongst the most memorable and special of days.
