Two members of the PCC were authorised by Rev. Tim Seago, Area Dean, to say prayers inside a locked St. Giles on 7th May, and have continued to do so each day – alternating, not together, so as to comply with the Bishop’s instructions. As well as saying the Daily Office (Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer or Compline), prayers are said for the health of the local community and for those in need. We pray that these restrictions may soon be lifted, and the church opened again for “normal service”.
