Many thanks to Stella and her Team, not only for their tremendous work throughout the year, but also in particular for the splendid Christmas lunch last week, which was generously supported by Asda.

Many thanks also to the Flower Team and to everyone else who has helped in any way to decorate St Giles’ for this great festival, enhancing the beauty of this lovely Church; to our team of Welcomers who reach out in our whole chain of visible and active service; and to the Grounds team who work with dedication whatever the weather to ensure that our surroundings do justice to our mission
