The Lakanal Fire – 10 years on

It’s been over two years since the tragic events of the Grenfell Tower fire took place.

For some of us it’s hard to believe that ten years have passed since another fire, closer to home to us in Camberwell, took place in a residential tower claiming the lives of six people and traumatising many more.

St Giles’ will be marking the ten-year anniversary of the Lakanal House fire with a multi-faith service, open to all, on Wednesday 3rd July at 6.30pm. For some people, such an event may be too painful for them to attend. For others, it may provide some comfort and the opportunity for those who were involved to come together in friendship.

All are very welcome.

Summer Series

We’re very excited that our summer series of concerts is underway!

After another fantastic Organoke, we have four ‘short but sweet’ concerts designed to help you relax on the way home from work. There will be wine and some incredible music on offer.

Summer Series

Each concert will last around 45 minutes to an hour and we welcome donations on the door. Doors open at 6.30pm and music starts at 7pm.

Visit our Facebook page for more information. All are very welcome.

Easter Eggsuberance!

Easter 2019 at St Giles’ was a wonderful time to come and visit us. Our church looked beautiful and it was filled with music by our choir as well as from our special guests, the Brühler Bläserakademie wind orchestra from Germany. Even the weather was on our side and the sun shone through our stained glass windows to make Easter Day a truly glorious occasion for all.

Thank you to everyone who was involved – our flower arrangers, the cleaners, church wardens, Cuthbert and the serving team, soloists Matthew Duncan and Joe Giles, the choir and readers. And a particular special mention to our training choir who sang for the first time at St Giles’ – they were quite rightly rewarded by finding all 96 creme eggs in the Easter egg hunt!
