St Giles the Abbot

Charity description

St Giles the Abbot logo
Originally the historic parish of Farnborough was a sub-chapel of the more important and larger parish of St. Martin of Tours, Chelsfield. In the 19th century Farnborough began to emerge as a parish in its own right. From then until the present time Farnborough has continued to grow and develop. St. Giles and St. Nicholas now serve a population of over 19,000 people. We continue to serve our community in a variety of ways, through the strong community life and outreach at St. Nicholas and through St. Giles' welcome to marrying couples, infants for baptism and bereaved families. St. Giles is a lively, diverse and active Christian church offering a wide range of services to a multi-generational community.

At the heart of everything we do is a belief in the eternal and life giving love of God perfectly revealed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This love is stronger than sin, hatred, sickness or death. It is the pearl of great price and the meaning and purpose of life. We believe that we are called to follow the commandments of Christ - to love ourselves, to love our neighbours and to love God with everything we have. We recognise that this is not always easy, especially as Jesus reminds us that love and forgiveness are inseparable.
We are by no means a perfect community, neither do we have all the answers and all the confidence that some would associate with strong beliefs and faith. However we each try to love as God has called us to, acknowledging that we are all works in progress being inwardly and outwardly transformed into the likeness of Christ through the power of the Spirit.
