This Sunday morning there will be a single, united family communion, with all the churchatcastle congregations joining together. Everyone is welcome.
All Age Worship and Holy Communion take place once a month.
All are welcome to come and share the fun and games, music, yummy food and a visit by Father Christmas.
Community at Christmas - St Giles, at the bottom of Castle St, is an inclusive church and a place for the whole community.
Domestic preparations for Christmas traditionally begin on "Stir up Sunday", which falls this year on Sunday 20th November.
Join us at 2.30 pm that afternoon for a Christmas Pudding Workshop.
Learn how to make a pudding, help make a pudding for the church and take away the recipe and know-how to make your own.
We look forward to seeing you!
A collection will be taken to support the Christmas Tree Festival
A concert by the Whiteacre Clarinet Quartet in the beautiful, candlelit surroundings of St. Giles' Church. This will take place as part of the 2016 Christmas Tree Festival, so you can also enjoy the sight and scent of 32 beautifully decorated, real Christmas trees twinkling with lights.

Again this year Mette and Charlotte, our Danish experts, will help us start the Advent time with the Danish tradition of binding your own advent wreath. In Denmark you use this wreath indoors for counting down to Christmas with four candles, but you can also come to this workshop to make a festive and welcoming wreath for your front door.
Come and buy seasonal gifts, crafts, home-bakes and produce in the beautiful setting of the Christmas Tree Festival. Apart from the stalls, the church will be full of beautifully decorated, real Christmas trees twinkling with lights.
Meet at the Traveller's Rest pub at 7.15 pm and then we will cross the road for some carol singing around the King's Court development. These are three roads on the other side of Huntingdon Road: Lawrence Weaver Road, Yeoman Drive and Burlton Road (see map below)
