Activities July – December 2018

Sunday 29 July,  Essa’s Concert for Mind

When violinist Essa Flett, guitarist, Jamie Leeming and cellist Hannah Thomas funded their upcoming album via the fundraising website Kickstarter, they promised to hold a charity concert.


Essa, a Guildhall School  graduate who worships at St Giles’ writes,


‘We chose Mind because we have personal experience of mental health problems, either in our own life or the lives of our friends and wanted to help support a charity that does such good work in helping those struggling with their mental health, both through Mind’s work in local shops and through their website.’ 


After the Eucharist, Essa and her friends played for us and raised £230 for  Mind. Thank you to Essa, Jaime and Hannah and all who supported their charity concert.  

Sunday 12 July, Judth Eliis retires 

We had a goodbye party in the rectory garden for Judith after the Eucharist on Sunday 12 July. We don’t really think she’s going to give up on London living and that after a few weeks the dog walking and bicycle rides of retirement will be less enthralling.


Judith spoke about her first Sunday at St Giles and being greeted by Frank. She said that people do not give chief executives a hug, but Frank hugged her, and she felt really welcomed.


Judith has been an active part of the life of St Giles’ over 15 years and we have been energised by her humour and honesty. Also, we supported her former charity, Help 4 Hurting Children that helped to train many paediatric nurses in Uganda. Members of the congregation who visited the hospital in Kampala with her, saw that she was loved and respected for the dedicated work she and her colleagues did to improve the care of sick children.  We are proud that she was named among the 70 most influential nurses and midwives over the 70 years of the National Health Service. We look forward to seeing her again before long.
