Welcome to St Giles' Church in the heart of the

Barbican, London                                             

We are here to love God and to make Christ known in word and deed. We are an inclusive church and welcome all comers


The Feast of the Trinity starts on Trinity Sunday (22 May 2016) and continues until  Advent Sunday (27 November 2016)

The doctrine of the Trinity is the Christian belief that, there is One God, who is Father Son and Holy Spirit.

Trinity Sunday, which falls on the first Sunday after Penticoast, is one of the few feasts in the Christian calendar that celebrate a doctrine rather than an event.

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all”             2 Corinthians 13 v 14

We are the Church of England parish church in the heart of the Barbican and the spiritual focus of the community here. We welcome all people of faith and goodwill, and are here to serve the community in its diversity. We welcome those who are called to worship with us on Sundays and during the week or to come for a wedding, a memorial service, a concert, to use the church for private prayer and reflection or simply to light a candle and sit quietly in the course of the working day.

The Diocese of London and its parishes are now committed to being aware of and using where possible, Fairtrade items for church events, and individual members of the congregation are invited to make a commitment.

If your marriage is going bad, your kids are on dope, your work is unsatisfactory, you're really unhappy, maybe the place not to go to is the pub, maybe the place to go to - even if you've lost all faith in the divine - is into the church, a safe spiritual space of no judgement. Just go in, and let some of that into you.


We are a medieval church in the City of London.  As the novelist A N Wilson writes, "The Barbican now an immense plate glass fantasy, enormous towers soaring up to the sky. But doggedly, in the middle of it all, St Giles' Cripplegate, bombed, repaired, stands as the last imaginable little memorial of a vanished city that Shakespeare knew."
