We are pleased to announce that St Giles Church and St Matthew's Church will reopen for Sunday services from

Sunday, 6 December 2020

There will be one service at 10.00 am on Sundays.

A maximum of 30 people at St Giles and 20 people at St Matthew's may be 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 on Tel 0114 248 2769 or by email: [email protected]

All worshippers will be most welcome.

Anyone wishing to discuss arrangements for funerals or marriages 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.

4. All attending for individual private prayer will be asked to fill in a Test and Trace sheet with their contact details which will be stored for 21 days or to 'check in' using the Church QR code displayed.

​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.
