St Giles Church

Our 11.00am Sung Eucharist is our main Holy Communion service on Sunday. The service lasts around 1 hour. During the service the St Giles Sunday Club meets in the Parish Centre during the service, except on the last Sunday of the month, when it is our 4forAll service, and for breaks during school holidays. On weeks when there is no Sunday Club, children’s activity bags are available at the back of church and there is usually an activity provided for the day.
