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.

Graffham War Memorial Centenary

Prayers were said at Graffham War Memorial on Saturday 12 June at 3pm to commemorate 100 years since its unveiling. Garden flowers were laid at the memorial, as happened on the unveiling day by family and friends of those who lost loved ones. These were offered in respect and compassion for all who have suffered such grief in times of war, since then.
