About Us

Welcome to St Giles, Hawkridge. St Giles is of Norman origin, with many beautiful features and splendid, perhaps unrivalled, moorland views.

We are an inclusive Church of England parish where all are welcome; especially the many visitors to this area of outstanding natural beauty.

We are part of the wider Exmoor Community and we celebrate our close connection with the timeless rhythms of the seasons, lambing, calving, foaling. In the best traditions of the Church of England we invite people of all faiths and none to join us, to pause for thought and reflection, to take time to reflect on the amazing gift of life, to make therapeutic moves towards greater wholeness.

We hope that we can offer you a vision and a taste of the abundance of life that comes from being part of the Church: its rich heritage of inspiring individuals, literature and art.
