‘embracing modern life’

Cover Image: We have had very positive feedback from opening up our garden to Thirsty, the Wine Merchants.

Friday-Sunday, they are serving high-end drinks in conjunction with a wide range of food trucks. The atmosphere is marvelous with families and large groups of friends assembling in the sun to enjoy our grounds - and the church!

St Giles’ has been described as ‘the perfect parish’ and ‘embracing modern life’ by the people attending. More than one person said how beautiful they found St Giles'. The Cambridge News also reported on it very favourably. See more pictures on our FB page.
