Our Parish Share next year will be £32249 – an increase of 2.9% over our 2018 payments. Please can you consider prayerfully how you can increase your giving next year so that between us we can manage to cover this increase? Thank you! John Baldry
Gift Aid envelopes If you donate frequently to the offertory at St Giles you can have a set of buff envelopes on which you are identified by a personal number.

Do you have a recommendation for a charity that you would like the St Giles PCC to consider supporting next year? If so, please write it on the list at the back of church with your name by your request so that PCC members can ask you for more information should they require it.

For spiritual reflection…..Before we can serve God in the world we need to spend time with God and be resourced by him.
