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 celebrated 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.
WORSHIP IN OUR BUILDINGS UPDATE
With everyone's safety of paramount importance and to support the Government's 'Stay at Home' message the Church Council have decided the church buildings will remain closed for public worship; we will continue to provide worship online live via zoom and via our youtube channel.
We will review the situation regularly and let you know as soon as we feel it safe to open the buildings again.
Thoughts for the Day and the links following the recorded live services can be accessed through our Youtube channel www.youtube.com/channel/UChrNOZTLpGoPc20fcGgXeAg or here on the Worship page https://www.stgilesdesborough.org/worship.html>).
These are also included within regular email updates, including the zoom link for our live Sunday services, if you would like to receive the live links please contact Hannah Jeffery on email@example.com to do this.
We are doing all we can to love and support our community during this difficult time, please be in touch if there is anything we can do to support you - from the occasional phone call, to shopping deliveries, or anything else!
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.
