  Wednesdays 10.30am - 12 noon 

Coffee Mornings in St Giles' Church. Everyone is invited for coffee in the Deane Chapel (or outside in the Churchyard, if the weather is good). There is no charge - this is a social get-together, not a fundraiser. Also, we now serve coffee after all our regular services, so please join us if you can.
