St. Giles' Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church in Jefferson, Maine

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 and fourth Sundays 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.

 

Recycle your Redeemable Cans and Bottles at St. Giles’

 Just a reminder that there are tagged Clynk bags in the parish hall for you to take. Bring your filled bags and put them in the undercroft, and we will take them to Hannaford’s for redemption. This is an easy way to add a little to our parish income.  Thank you!
