We are pleased to announce that St Giles Church re-opened for Sunday services on

Sunday, 16th August 2020 and weekly thereafter.

During the Pandemic there will be one service of Holy Communion at 10.00am on Sundays.

There will not be any other Sunday or weekday services for the time being.

Government guidelines indicate that there should be a maximum of 30 people present at any service.  To ensure we keep to these guidelines, we ask that anyone who is not a member of our regular congregation and wishes to attend a service should inform the Rector, Revd Canon Helen Guest, beforehand (Tel: 0114 2482769 or [email protected]).

All worshippers will be most welcome.

Anyone wishing to discuss arrangements for baptisms, marriages or funerals in church should contact Revd Helen (as above). 

Thank you for your understanding and keep safe.

Please adhere to the following:

​1. Sanitise your hands on entering and leaving the building

2. Keep 2m apart from other households inside the building at all times

3. If you would like to light a candle please first allow time for alcohol-based hand sanitiser to completely dry and then light the candle from an existing candle flame. Do not use matches.

​Our church website contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life (please see our Spirituality Resources page). You can also find prayer resources at

Revd Helen and Revd Michael are also available to receive calls between 9am and 11am weekdays and Saturday mornings, but please feel free to phone us at any time if we can be of any help whatsoever.
