SUNDAY 8th JULY 9.30 am BLESSING OF VEHICLES
The July Family Eucharist, which involves the blessing of vehicles, will take place a week later than usual on 8th July rather than 1st July. This is because we are hoping that some children will come from Saint Giles School to sing and 8th July suits them better than 1st July. Please bring your bikes, skateboards, cars, boots and walking sticks for their annual blessing.
SUNDAY 20th JULY 11 am
Saint Giles School Leavers Service in Church. All welcome.
SATURDAY 25th AUGUST to FRIDAY 31st AUGUST
Photographic Exhibition in Church
SUNDAY 9th SEPTEMBER 9.30 am SAINT GILES DAY
The Right Reverend Jan McFarlane, Bishop of Repton, will be joining us on 9th September for our Sung Eucharist. She will be preaching on the occasion of our patronal festival. This will be followed by a glass of wine and light refreshments which, in turn, will be followed by Benediction. Do please join us that day so that we can give her a warm welcome.
SUNDAY 16th SEPTEMBER 4 pm ANIMAL SERVICE
Please bring your pets to the Animal Service at 4 pm on 16th September. During the service, the animals will come up and receive their blessing. If you don’t have an animal, you can still come and pray for the welfare of all creatures. Bring a cuddly toy as a symbol of the animal world or a photograph of one of your former animal companions. Do encourage children to come to this service. Your own children, friend’s children, grand children. It is a lovely occasion and everyone enjoys it.
