Whether you are a member of St Giles’ Church, a resident of Camberwell, a UK citizen or a visitor to our website from another country – you are very welcome!
A church has stood on the site of St Giles’ for over 1,000 years and we continue to serve the people of Camberwell through Christian worship to this day. We try to be a welcoming, open, inclusive and friendly community church. We are in the catholic tradition of the Church of England and we support the ministry of all.
