We're here for you if you need us

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 23rd March, the Church of England are requiring that churches must now close both for private worship and public services until further notice.

Funerals may now only happen at the Crematorium or at the graveside.  Only immediate family members can attend (if the crematorium allows) – that is, spouse or partner, parents and children, keeping their distance in the prescribed way.

If you wish to discuss this with a member of the clergy, please contact the Church office on 01604 628623 or email office@stgilesnorthampton.org.uk

We to assure you of our prayers during this difficult time.

Further information can be found on the Church of England’s website.  See link below:

If you are getting in touch because of the death of a loved one, we’re so sorry about your recent loss. We’ll always be here to help you through one of life’s most difficult times. A Church of England funeral is available to everyone, giving support before, during and after the service for as long as it’s needed.

If you need to arrange a funeral, we first suggest that you contact your local funeral director. You can let them know if you wish to have the service here at St Giles church and they can make those arrangements with us on your behalf. We can recommend the following here in Northampton.
