Stuart Howes has been our Curate at St Giles and St Eata for the past three years, and has been an inspiration to us all.
He has now been installed as Vicar of Christ Church, Wellington and Holy Spirit, Hadley.
Because of the Covid restrictions we have not been able to give him the send-off that he, Vicki and Amelie deserve, but we have "zoomed" him on his way and look forward to a proper celebration of his work as soon as possible

c.£3500 was raised from
St Giles' parish in 2019
to tackle root causes of poverty and enable communities to thrive.
Andy Clough took part in the Ride and Stride for Historic Churches Trust and St. Giles’ church in September, cycling 60 miles and visiting 35 of our historic churches.
He raised just over £500, half of which has come back to St. Giles church
Well done Andy and very many thanks!!
Congratulations to our Organist and Choirmaster Dr Derry Bertenshaw for winning St Paul's Cathedral Composing Competition.
This prestigious competition attracted entries from around the world. Derry's anthem Wedding of Water and Wine was one of the final four entries to be performed in the Cathedral by St Paul's Consort before an invited audience.
It received its world premiere sung by the full choir at St Paul's Epiphanytide Procession Service on 12th January 2020.
