We’re back open for worship but, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we have had to make a few changes. There is currently only one service on a Sunday at 11.30am.

Those wishing to attend Sunday worship are encouraged to book in advance to guarantee a place (information can be found by clicking the link above) and to provide Track and Trace details. We will endeavour to accommodate all those wishing to attend but our capacity is currently limited to 109*2.

We have a one-way system in place and all worshippers are will require to sanitise their hands on entry and wear a face covering throughout. All seats are set out in pairs and those pairs are spaced at 1 metre to comply with physical distancing requirements. Couples, and those from the same household, will be asked to be seated in one pair of seats and any worshippers attending on their own will occupy one pair of seats.

We are currently not celebrating Holy Communion, however the congregation is now able to join in singing the hymns but masks must still be worn. Our reduced choir will perform some music.

St Giles’ is a Church of Scotland congregation and worships according to the Presbyterian tradition. We welcome people of all faiths and none to enjoy the peace of the building and listen to our services.

There are four services every Sunday, followed by music at 6pm, Holy Communion on Fridays at 8am and a daily weekday service at noon. Holy Communion is the central act of worship in St Giles’ and is celebrated several times each week. The daily service at noon is a simple quarter-hour of readings and prayers where visitors are welcome to join with the congregation in worship.

A peaceful corner for quiet reflection can always be found in St Giles’. The Albany Aisle in the North West corner of the church is reserved for prayer and meditation. In the Holy Blood Aisle, near the Organ, you can light a candle and write a prayer.
