For Online Worship and information on how to book a place at Sunday Services, please see the above links.
We’re open for worship but, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we have had to make a few changes. From Sunday 5th September, there will be two services on Sunday mornings: Holy Communion at 9.30am and Morning Worship at 11am. Communion will be distributed in one kind only (the bread) with procedures in place to enhance hygiene.
Those wishing to attend Sunday worship are encouraged to book in advance to guarantee a place (information can be found by clicking the ‘Service Booking’ button above or by going to eventbrite.co.uk) 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 paired seats.
We have a one-way system in place and all worshippers are requested 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.
The congregation is now able to join in singing the hymns but masks must still be worn. The Cathedral Choir sings at both the 9.30 and 11am services, and details of the music are available under Upcoming Events on this page.
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 services every Sunday, followed by music at 6pm. Holy Communion is the central act of worship in St Giles’ and is celebrated each week.

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.
