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.
The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings are closed.
We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19, we must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.
Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.
Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building.
You can find daily Thoughts for the Day on the 'Worship' page of our website or our youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChrNOZTLpGoPc20fcGgXeAg/ and more information on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/StGilesDesborough/ and website: stgilesdesborough.org.
The vicar of this church – Revd Hannah Jeffery can be

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.
Bishop of Peterborough
Starting 2019 we are exploring 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.
