Advance Notice 


The charity founded in 2006 will cease its operation in December 2017

There are many reasons for this,

  • Uganda has now developed ‘in country training’ in alliance with the UK government and the RCPCH
  • A new National hospital is being built
  • Costs and governance requirements escalating
  • Changing Trustee circumstances


H4HC has been one of the charities that we have supported at St Giles’

and Katharine our Rector is a Trustee.

Katharine says, ‘What impressed me about visiting the project, seeing our team in action and meeting the staff and Pastoral Care Team at Mulago Hospital, is how much good is done with quite limited resources. The hugs all round upon arrival at the airport are testimony to the love and respect of with which the charity is regarded.

St Giles’ has been committed to fund raising for H4HC. There have been book fairs throughout the year and for the past couple of summers we have had a cake stall at the City of London Community Day in Guildhall Yard. As a community, we remember H4HC in our prayers and kept informed through the regular reports’.

The Chairperson Professor Judith Ellis MBE since its inception is also a member of our congregation. Her primary research interest is the sharing of best practice to ensure the highest possible quality of care for children and she has considerable knowledge and first-hand experience of paediatric care Internationally including in resource limited countries.

H4HC has much to be proud of its achievements in Uganda as the H4HC  report below shows.

We at St Giles’ have been privileged to support H4HC and thank all who have helped and contributed towards its important and vital work.

City of London Brass Band


The 'City of London Brass Band' meets on Wednesday evenings at 7pm in St Giles' for rehearsals. The band is part of the North London Brass Network that has encouraged people to play music right across the capital.

The band's Director, Martyn Stogden, says. "We have a number of local people from the Barbican and Golden Lane Estates, who have come to play with us, including people who work and study in the City, exactly the sort of mix from the community for which we were hoping".

Do you play a brass instrument and would you like to join us and be part of this exciting new venture? We are happy to work with people of all ages and experience who are returning to playing brass or with those who would like to learn for the first time.


We meet most Wednesdays, but it is advisable to check with the band to arrange a first visit. Contact details are on the band's website

www.cityoflondonbrass.co.uk  Please email Martyn for more details at martyn.stogden@yahoo.co.uk or telephone him on 020 8366 0657.

Cromwell Association’s annual service of commemoration at 3.00pm


The Cromwell Association is an historical society, founded in 1937 to commemorate Oliver Cromwell and to stimulate interest in the broader history of the mid-17th century. We are a registered educational charity and membership organisation.

Each year on as close a date as possible to the anniversary of Cromwell’s death on 3rd September 1658, we hold an annual service of commemoration. Usually this is held at the Palace of Westminster but this year it will be held at St Giles, the church where Cromwell was married to his wife Elizabeth in 1620. 

It is a simple service of hymns, prayers and readings. This address will be given by Dr Stephen K Roberts, of the History of Parliament Trust, and a vice-president of the Association.

You are warmly invited to join us for the service, and for tea and biscuits at its conclusion. There will be a retiring collection for St Giles.

For more information about the Association see www.olivercromwell.org

Saturday 9 September Food Bank Appeal


The collection will be from 10.30-12.30 outside Waitrose in Cherry Tree Walk off Whitecross Street
