How can we help?
As COVID restrictions on special services are changing regularly, please contact the church office to discuss your plans. Below is our "old normal" information for reference.
The Church of England provides for couples to get married within their Parish of residence or at the Parish where they are regular worshipping members.
It is also possible for couples to marry in a church which has special significance to them, even though they live elsewhere.
An engaged couple are able to be married in the church if one of the following applies:-
One of you has been baptised or prepared for confirmation in the parish
One of you has lived in the parish for six months or more
One of you has at any time regularly attended public worship in the parish for six months or more
One of your parents has lived in the parish for six months or more within your lifetime
One of your parents has regularly attended public worship here for six months or more in your lifetime
Your parents or grandparents were married in the church
During the period leading up to your wedding we will expect to you to regularly attend one of the services we hold at either St. Giles’ or St. Andrew’s. This gives us a time to get to know you and enables you to experience something of the life of the Church in which you wish to marry.
If you would like any further information on the above or to book at wedding at St. Giles’ please contact us.
If you would like to have your child baptised, please come along to a Sunday service and speak to Natasha or contact us for further information.
Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which you affirm for yourself the faith into which you have been baptised and your intention to live in the way of Jesus. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact Natasha.
We work closely with local funeral directors to arrange services to suit your needs and it is quite common for them to make all of the arrangements on behalf of the family. However, you are always welcome to speak to the Vicar, Natasha directly. Contact us here.
