Great celebrations were held on October 5th and 6th this year as St Giles celebrated 50 years or working together as an LEP. On Saturday 5th there was an exhibition of the church's history over the years and many visitors came to look at the displays whilst enjoying the refreshments on offer. Photographs of past clergy have been on display in the vestry for many years and were brought out to be displayed on the altar. At the end of the day displays were moved to the Community Centre in
readiness for the services the following day.

On Sunday morning nearly 200 people attended a celebration service led jointly by the Chair of District, Rev Helen Cameron and Bishop Donald, Bishop of Peterborough.
The service was followed by a Fellowship Lunch in the Community Centre at which Rev Hannah Jeffrey and Rev Andrew Farrington cut a Celebration cake which included the St Giles logo.
In the evening there was a wonderful Songs of Praise service reflecting worship music over the 50 years. It was an exciting weekend of giving praise to God for the last 50 years and looking forward to the next 50. Thanks go to all those people who worked so hard to make it happen.
