Welcome to the website of
the Parish of Farnborough, in the London Borough of Bromley.

We hope that you will enjoy reading these pages about our church and community.

Over the past one thousand years countless people have come here to worship God, to celebrate, to mark the important events in their families' lives and to seek meaning, comfort, and strength from God along life's journey.

As we appreciate the physical beauty of St. Giles and learn about its long history, I trust that we will also remember that St. Giles and St. Nicholas have been, and are, living and active Christian communities seeking to witness faithfully to the saving love of Christ.  

Wherever you are, please remember our parish and its work in your thoughts and prayers.

Matthew J. Hughes, Rector

Events and Notices

All Souls Service

Sunday 25th October

This year there will be an All Souls service online on Sunday 25th October when the names of loved ones will be read out.

Toilet Consultation

The unanimous conclusion from the PCC is that a toilet cannot be provided within the church building, and that future attention should therefore focus on the redevelopment or rebuilding of St. Giles Centre.

Parish Magazine

Increase in charges for the magazine and change to subscription renewal date have now been approved by the PCC.

The PCC acknowledged the important part that the magazine plays in the mission and outreach of St. Giles.  The PCC expressed its sincere thanks to the magazine team for their hard work in this area of church life.

Church Opening: Private Prayer

Now that we are offering three services at St. Giles on a Sunday and with dwindling numbers coming to Church for private prayer as people have gone back to work and children are back at school, St. Giles will no longer be opening for private prayer.
