REGULAR DONATIONS FOR THE WORK AND UPKEEP OF ST GILES
If anyone is a tax-payer and is not yet on our Gift Aid scheme, can we urge you to sign up! It allows us to claim another 25% on top of your donation — really worthwhile additional income for St Giles. Please get in touch with Cath Gregory if you have any questions at all. Thank you.

HOME INSURANCE AND A PRESENT FOR ST GILES
We have used Ecclesiastical Insurance for some time to insure the church and halls. As it is Ecclesiastical’s 130th birthday this year, they are offering £130 to St Giles for each home insurance policy taken out by a member of the congregation, staff or volunteers. So if you are interested, please look at the poster in church or in the small hall for details of how to contact Ecclesiastical. This offer covers home insurance policies taken out with Ecclesiastical to start on or before 18 May 2018.
