On Sunday 1st September we will be celebrating Saint Giles Day. There will be the Sung Eucharist at 9.30 am at which the Archdeacon of Chesterfield, The Venerable Carol Coslett, will be giving the address. This will then be followed by a glass of wine and light refreshments followed, in turn, by the beautiful service of Benediction.
Do please put this date in your diary and make every effort to be there. Saint Giles day is our patronal festival, which is a very important day in the calendar of a church. We are giving thanks for the example of our patron saint and thinking of him praying for us in heaven. We are giving thanks for the history of our church and for all who have worshipped here before us and praying for those who will come after us.
Archdeacon Carol has not visited Saint Giles before. So do please come and welcome her and show her what a vibrant and forward looking congregation we are.
