St. Giles Church, founded in 1098, is a Grade II* Listed Building, built of sandstone blocks from Hadrian’s Wall. The church is situated in the village of Great Orton. It is reputed to have been the first church built in Cumberland following the Norman Conquest.
There has been a Worshipping Congregation here for over 9 centuries; we would love you to join us as we continue that tradition.
As the Family of God in our community, we worship Jesus and go out to serve the local community with His Love.
