Worship at St Giles
The worship at St Giles is centred on all the Lord's people, being at the Lord's table on the Lord's day. We gather for the Euchararist or Holy Communion or Mass at which we remember the saving love of God revealed in Jesus Christ.
The service can be desribed as traditional, in that we wear robes and stick to the words in the prayer book of the Church of England, but this is done in a friendly and relaxed manner. Yes, we come to Church to pray, to offer thanks and ask God for his mercy and goodness but this does not have to be all sombre and so we seek to have a balance of words, music and silence as well as moods.
We keep the liturgical year, which means we follow the Church's seasons, Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Holy Week and Easter and then in the summer Ordinary Time. This allows us to be immersed in the life of Christians worshipping all around the world and reminds us that God has called us a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people (from the first letter of St Peter) not in isolation but with Christians all around the world, living and departed.
We have a regularly Sunday School for the younger members of our congregation who wish to hear stories from the bible in a child friendly and craft orientated manner, as well as a "kids corner" for those who wish to remain in the service.
We also understand the value of fellowship and community and welcome all regulars and visitors for tea, coffee and biscuits after the 10:30 service on Sundays.
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
