We are always happy to welcome school visits to St Giles’. We host a number of events throughout the year such as sponsored walks, cake sales, end-of-year events and carol services / concerts.
St Giles’ also offers tours and activities to classes or year groups. A church visit is relevant to the current curriculum in so many ways – it can play a part in the teaching of local history, religious education, creative art and science.
As part of our organ restoration plan, we are very pleased to offer musical-themed visits based on exploring (and playing) some of the musical instruments in church. These visits can include tours of the 1844 organ and how it was constructed, song/hymn writing and even a scientific demonstration of how sound travels!
