The Vicar


 We are pleased to announce that the 

Rev John Bridge is the new vicar of St Giles


A message from Rev John Bridge.

Hello Everyone, it is with great pleasure that I am now officially the vicar of St. Giles! While a large service was planned for last night, unfortunately my licensing and institution was a muted event which happened over the Internet. 

In a few months time we will gather for a special service not only to celebrate my installation as vicar but to give thanks for all the people who have kept things going at St. Giles through the interregnum and those whose ministry has meant that the church has existed beyond the building for these few months. 

In the meantime, if you would like to speak to me, you can phone me on 07868-308351 or email me on or we can arrange an online chat via FaceTime or Zoom. 

Please be assured that I will be praying for you all, and if you have any specific prayer requests please let me know.

I hope to post various worship and prayer resources online, especially over Holy Week and Easter, but for now, here is the prayer that I used in the online service last night: 

Loving God, we rejoice that you have called us to know you, you have called us to love you, you have called us to serve you. 

We give you thanks and pray for all at St. Giles, for Yvonne and Jean and for all who have worked hard through the interregnum and given their time and energies to all that goes on at St. Giles. We pray for the parish, for all who are ill, all who are anxious, all who work to keep us safe and healthy. We ask that you bless and protect our homes and our loved ones. As we think about plans for the future of St. Giles, and place our trust in you Lord, we ask that we may reveal our calling, love and service in all that we say and do.                                                          Amen.

I hope you are all keeping safe and well and I hope to meet you all soon.

Revd. John Bridge
