ABOUT ST. GILES’

St. Giles' has a strong tradition of welcoming and openness. We hope to make comfortable all people who visit, try us out, or come earnestly looking for a new church home, regardless of their religious background, social situation, or political-philosophical orientation. We feel there’s a warm place for anyone at St. Giles' and we want you to feel that way too.

Within the Episcopal branch of the Anglican Church—that branch of the “holy catholic and apostolic church” stemming from centuries-old English tradition—any baptized person and anyone who desires a closer relationship with Jesus Christ is welcomed at the Lord’s Supper. Please feel free to receive Communion with us whenever you, your family, spouse, children, or friends are here.

St. Giles’ Sunday School

Sunday School is held on the second Sunday of every month for children ages 3 – 10. Sunday School starts at 9:30; children join the regular service prior to the celebration of the Eucharist.

Children participate in activities based on Bible lessons. They share those activities with the parish members and Giles, the church mouse.

There will be no Sunday School in July or August. Beginning in September, Sunday School will be held on the second and fourth Sundays.

 

Backpacks and School Supplies

We are collecting backpacks, school supplies, and money for our annual outreach effort on behalf of our local school children.  If you see some bargains, you can shop any time! Backpacks and school supplies will be given to Jefferson, Whitefield, and Windsor Elementary Schools for the fall.

Second Chance Clothing

“Second Chance Clothing,” a ministry at the First Baptist Church in Waldoboro led by Debbie Morin, accepts gently used clothing. If you would like to make a donation, please call Debbie at 701-9770 to arrange delivery or pick-up.  Please spread the word, if you know of anyone who could benefit from this ministry.
