Confirmation at 5pm in St Paul’s Cathedral

 

On Saturday, candidates from Parishes in the Diocese of London gathered at St Paul’s Cathedral for the first Service of Confirmation since the start of the Covid 19 Pandemic.

 

It was a joyful occasion as +Sarah, Bishop of London confirmed over 70 candidates.

 

Alex Norris, our curate was there to present 4 candidates from St Giles’ to the Bishop.

Ophelia, Alex, Sandra, Jeff and Cyril with +Sarah after the service.

Saturday 31 July 2021 The London Festival of Bells 

After a break of many months because of the pandemic and social distancing, bell ringers from across London took part in the London Festival of Bells on Saturday. In the City of London, the bells of 18 churches were rung as well as those of St Paul’s Cathedral and the Carillon at All Hallows by the Tower.

13:30 – 14:30 The 12 bells at St Giles-without-Cripplegate, Barbican

For the Ancient Society of College Youths ringing at St Giles' on Saturday, it was good to ring again although they felt they were out of practice and didn’t succeed in ringing a quarter-peal! Now bell ringing is back on the agenda hopefully this will soon be remedied! They also rang the next day before the 10.00 Parish Eucharist Service and we look forward to this becoming a regular feature again on Sunday mornings.
