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 THE CHURCH BUILDING
Public worship in the church building has resumed at 10am on Sundays and 2pm on Wednesdays. You will need to book with Wendy East during the week prior to the service and no later than 5pm on the day before; you can email Wendy on email@example.com or call her on 01536 506037. Please note that Covid-19 restrictions are still in place and you will be required to wear a mask unless exempt at all indoor services.
Online worship will continue, although in a slightly different way and we'll keep you posted on that.
Thoughts for the Day and the links following the recorded live services can still be accessed through our Youtube channel www.youtube.com/channel/UChrNOZTLpGoPc20fcGgXeAg or here on the Worship page https://www.stgilesdesborough.org/worship.html>).
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.
