An Unexpected Gift

During a very enjoyable gift day at Saint Giles on Saturday 28th November, where we shared coffee and wonderful cakes, we were joined by an unexpected visitor. Meet Van who, having bravely taken an unscheduled swim in the Derwent, had become parted from his human and had quite cleverly found his way up the hill to the church. We dried him off and gave him some buttered fruit loaf and soon reunited him with his very worried family. Saint Giles, protector of the deer of the forest, obviously prayed for him.

Singing in Church Again

It was good to have singing in the 9.30am service today – but also good that people could sit in areas away from singing if they wished. God’s people met to praise, pray and worship – some with masks, some without – but all as HIs children, loved and cared for. Alleluia!

Parish Walk

Many thanks to Claire and Fred for leading the parish walk on Tuesday 15th June. A fine evening, good company, super scenery and ending with birthday cake and beverages at the Fishpond (thank you and happy birthday Andrea).
