Hello Everyone,

As the Christmas season comes upon us, we are changing some of our services in order to deal with the celebrating Advent, and the Nativity of our Lord.

As such, our Wednesday Service at 5:15 is cancelled until the New Year. Due to the volume of carol concerts, and other events on a Wednesday, it is difficult to hold the silence and respect necessary for this service while people prepare and set up. Prayer requests will now be said in the Thursday Morning Eucharist.

From December, the Wedding Office (normally held at 6pm until 7pm) will be cancelled. If you desperately need to make a booking for a wedding, please contact the Parish Office. The Wedding Office will be back in the middle of January. Please check this website or facebook for the date.

Thanks,

~St. Giles Team
