Special weekend to promote all the medieval churches in Norwich – next year the Norwich Historic Churches Trust are holding a special weekend to showcase our medieval churches – this will be Sunday 30th April and the Bank Holiday Monday, 1st May. The Trust will be considering how we might better promote these churches as tourist attractions. St Giles will be taking part and we will be looking for volunteers to keep the church open. Fr Darren is at a breakfast planning meeting on Tuesday morning at St Stephen’s. More details to follow.

Any donations of wine for consumption at church events would be most gratefully received by the Churchwardens. We are running low and especially need white wine; please do bring in any bottles you would like to donate. We try to provide good hospitality at St Giles and are very grateful for all the contributions which the congregation members make. Thank you very much!
