The Loving Father
Our usual Sunday services are at 8am, 10am and 6:30pm. Come early in the morning for Holy Communion using the Book of Common Prayer.
At 10am, we celebrate the Eucharist, and at 6:30 we worship in a variety of formats, including Book of Common Prayer, Celtic, Taize and Contemporary styles.
The second Sunday in the month is an All Age service (without Holy Communion) when we usually include any baptisms.
Babies and toddlers have a small play area in church, with parental supervision. Children are invited to our Sunday School, and young people enjoy our Vestry Group.
Please see our Pew Sheet for details of this week's services.

Don't waste food
Vegetables freeze well - remember to label them!
Cake freezes well too - should you have any left!
Google 'make your own crackers' - there are a lot of suppliers. A great pre-lunch activity.
Or consider a table game - play a game of Consequences, or charades.
Make your own paper hats. (need to research this a bit!)

Our Church in Lockdown
Our church activities have changed ALMOST out of all recognition. Of course there are still services, and we keep in touch with each other, but our website has become the hub of our activity, and our personal contact happens by phone, online meetings and chance encounters on our state-sanctioned exercise.
Here you will find ways of contributing to our joint financial and physical well-being.
We look forward to the day when we can all meet again in church.
One or two of you who normally make a financial contribution to the Church via the offering plate on a Sunday, have asked what can be done if you wish to continue to provide your offerings while the church is shut down.
In case there are others asking themselves a similar question – there are two options.
For you who have online bank access, then the easiest and simplest option is either to set up a Standing Order, or make an occasional one off contribution. Provided you remember to use your surname – and if you have one, your gift aid reference number, we’ll be able to identify you and continue to obtain the most important Gift Aid support from HMRC.
Our bank information is
PCC of Chalfont St Giles
Sort Code 60-05-50
Account number 03602796
If you are concerned about using online banking, then the straightforward alternative is to send an occasional cheque (no cash please !!) We have facilities to pay in to the bank.
