You are Welcome Here
…to our fantastic Parish Giving Scheme donors and other supporters!
Thanks to everyone who has provided financial support to St Giles in the past year when the pandemic has challenged us in every way. With our ability to raise funds in the usual ways curtailed so severely, donations through our Parish Giving Scheme in particular have greatly helped keep our church alive, providing our mission and ministry in our parish and beyond.
If you would like to the many others already helping safeguard the future or our historic church and everything it does for our parish by making a regular or one-off donation, click here to see how easy it is.
