About Us

All Are Welcome

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—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.

Vestry Update

Read the latest notes from St. Giles vestry

The vestry was happy to welcome Rev. Dana back from her vacation! The meeting opened with the reading of our newly created Vestry Covenant and I think that strengthened the bond we share. Rev. Dana and Charles had worked on a Wolf Fund Grant Application in August which would pay for books to use in a study group during our vestry meetings this fall. We received the grant, and Charles secured copies of a book  ‘How to Lead When You Don’t Know Where You Are Going” by Susan Beaumont . Thank you Charles and Rev. Dana.
