The church will be open on:
Sundays 16, 23 and 30 August 2020 from 9.30-11.30am.
This is for private personal prayer only. There will be no public worship (liturgy). There will probably be reflective quiet recorded music. The number of people allowed in church at any one time will be managed to ensure safe social distancing. Anyone who arrives when the church is full will be invited to wait outside until it is safe for them to enter.
Sundays 6, 13, 20 and 27 September 2020 at 9.30am
These will be a Service of the Word (not Communion). A short service of prayers, sermon and readings, based on the Virtual Service. There can be no congregational singing at present. We are still hoping to have some sort of music in the church; whether this will be recorded or whether we can offer some live music is still to be decided. Numbers will be restricted.
From Sunday 4 October at 9.30am onwards
First Sundays of the month. A Book of Common Prayer Communion service.
Second Sundays of the month. All-age service with NO communion.
Third Sundays of the month. A traditional Communion Service.
Forth Sundays of the month. All-age & family themed Communion Service.
All Sunday services will be short, with no congregational singing. The eucharist will be administered by Tom and Jonathan in one kind only (ie the bread). Further COVID restrictions
Every Thursday from 3 September Communion service at 10.30am
Held in the Sanctuary of the Church
Prayer is at the heart of St Giles
The Healing Prayer Group is made up of ordinary Christian people who put their faith in God and want to pray for you. It is still meeting regularly (albeit over the internet during Covid 19) to pray for everyone on our Sick List and in our Book of Prayer.
In normal circumstances Prayer for Healing takes place in the small chapel. It is usually at the end of a service, either morning or evening.
You can ask for prayer for yourself or for someone else.
We will pray with you that you may experience God’s healing and that you may have a sense of his presence with you, his love, his peace and his support through the Holy Spirit.
Whoever you are, and whatever your needs, you are welcome to come and ask for prayer.
All requests are treated in the strictest confidence.
If you would like prayer please contact Jacquie Howard, who is now the portal for the Healing Prayer group. Contact Jacquie
