NIGHT PRAYER We are encouraging folk to use our Night Prayer service booklet each evening, to retain our sense of community and remember those who are self-isolated in our prayers. Click on the Night Prayer box above to find a service you can use or for a copy to download.
Contact Revd Vivien on 01798 867199 or [email protected] if you are isolating or have a concern or would just like to let her know how you are. She will be pleased to hear from you.
KEEPING TOGETHER WHILE APART Revd Vivien is writing a short diary entry each day with a prayer for the day on the St Giles Graffham Facebook Notice board. Click on the box above to see today’s diary entry.
Lord, we pray for all affected by the pandemic at this time, those who are anxious or self isolating or unwell and those who care for them, all healthcare professionals, and those in authority making difficult decisions, in this country and abroad. As borders are transcended, may we be drawn together in common compassion and resolve across the world. Amen
WORSHIP THIS WEEK Click on the box above for resources to share in worship together during our time of separation.
ST GILES CHURCH AND ALL SAINTS CHAPEL In obedience to government instructions our parish church and chapel are now closed until further notice, to protect the vulnerable from the pandemic. Our worship continues in this parish however as Holy Communion is celebrated daily from the Rectory and we gather for Night Prayer in our individual homes.
Welcome to St Giles Graffham
In the parish of Graffham with Woolavington, St Giles Church is a sacred site nestling beautifully under the wooded slopes of the South Downs. Here the ever-changing colours of the trees remind us of the heavenly rhythms of the earth and the varied cycle of our seasons.
We worship God together at St Giles in our morning services. Offering our prayers and praise and sharing in communion and friendship. Each child gathering with us honours us with their presence and altogether as a church we offer a special welcome to each one.
At All Saints Chapel we gather for evening services and on weekdays for Morning Prayer. Our Church and our Chapel are open for everyone each day in daylight hours. We pray that this peaceful haven will provide rest for your souls and that you will journey from our church each time renewed in faith, hope and love.
