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.

Parish Eucharist takes place in the churchyard in fine weather, with hymns. Please bring your own garden chair if possible, though some chairs are available. Otherwise worshipping inside church with music by our little choir or organ. We warmly welcome families to our services at St Giles.

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