Welcome to St Giles. We aim to be a community rooted in Christ, sharing God’s love with all.
St Giles Anglican and Methodist Church is a thriving and lively community of Christians, worshipping and working together to share the Gospel. We are able to enjoy a wide spectrum of styles of worship together and in 2019 we will celebrate 50 years as a joint Anglican (Church of England) and Methodist Church.
As well being a joint Anglican and Methodist Church and therefore sharing in the life of the Kettering/Corby Circuit, we also share in ministry with the Anglican churches of Dingley, Brampton Ash and Braybrooke.
CHURCH IS RE-OPENING FOR WORSHIP
As of 6th December we will again be opening our building for worship, you will need to book for the St Giles service. Until then, St Giles will remain open for private prayer on Wednesdays at 2pm and Sundays at 10am.
The weekly services will continue to be uploaded on the website and can be found at WORSHIP
We are also producing regular thoughts for the day, which you can access either through our Youtube channel www.youtube.com/channel/UChrNOZTLpGoPc20fcGgXeAg or here on the Worship page https://www.stgilesdesborough.org/worship.html>). The links to our Thoughts for the Day and Sunday services are also included within regular email updates, if you would like to receive these emails please contact Hannah Jeffery on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are doing all we can to love and support our community during this difficult time, please be in touch if we can help you with anything at all.
As a church we want to explore what it means to be a disciple of Jesus - someone who is committed to following Jesus and living as he lived. That means living as Jesus did, demonstrating compassion, love, generosity, forgiveness and grace to the world around us. As a community we are exploring together how to do that in practice – and discovering that when we actively practice the way of Jesus our lives change for the better and the world becomes a better place. We’d love you to join with us in that exploration!
Everyone is welcome at St Giles – whatever age, background, or stage on your faith journey. You may have been a Christian for years, or you may just be asking questions about the relevance of faith to everyday life. Whatever, you are welcome.
There are lots of ways in which you can be involved, and we encourage everyone to be part of a small group in order to help them get to know people better, and have support and encouragement from others.
You can read more about our housegroups on the housegroups page.
