We're here for you if you need us

Losing a loved one at this time is particularly difficult and we want to do all we can to help and support you. Our natural human desire is to be surrounded by others in order to experience their comfort and support through presence, touch, prayer and to acknowledge the grief and loss together. Current government guidelines now allow us to carry out a funeral service in the church building providing we adhere to the social distancing rules and restrict numbers attending to a maximum of 30 people for public health reasons. Family and friends are able to attend.

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

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.
