WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
St Giles' tries to be a welcoming, inclusive and friendly church. We're also a very musical one! We'll keep you up to date with all the latest musical goings on and bring you news about all the groups and organisations who make music here.
Camberwell Arts Festival
Saturday 14th June to Sunday 22nd
St Giles' is delighted to be supporting the 20th Anniversary of the Camberwell Arts Festival!
From 7pm on Saturday 14th June St Giles' will be hosting 'Masters of Pop' as part of the festival, bringing together local bands and choirs including our very own Camberwell Community Choir! Tickets are £5 in advance from www.wegottickets.com (look for St Giles' Church) or you can buy them on the door for £6. There's a fully licensed bar and there'll still be loads of time afterwards to catch the build up to the England game!
On Friday 20th June from 7pm the crypt will be open as part of the festival with jazz by the Christine Tobin Trio. And listen out for a 'Soundscape of Camberwell' where the organ at St Giles' is one of twenty recordings captured by local sound engineer Cassandra Rutledge - check out the Camberwell Arts Festival website for more details.
2014 Concert Series
Planning for our next series will get underway later this year. In the meantime, thank you to everyone who has helped with this series, to our sponsors W. Uden & Sons and Haart - and of course to all our performers! Check out pictures and recordings from the concerts on St Giles' Facebook page here.
St Giles' Choir
Our church choir is a fundamental part of worship at St Giles'. The choir continues a long tradition of choral music both at St Giles' and in the Church of England.
To help us grow the choir and improve our musicanship, a grant has been awarded by the Ousley Trust for a number of choral scholarships which have already made a huge difference to the choir. The grant has enabled us to increase the range of repertoire we are able to sing - as well as inspiring others to join. The trust helps around 40 churches in similar ways every year and we are extremely grateful for their support.
You can find out more about the Trust at the website, here.
Camberwell Community Choir
Summer Term has started! Rehearsals on Tuesdays at 7.45pm
The choir is expecting summer 2014 to be a very busy term indeed with performances at the Young Vic theatre and at King's College Hospital for the centenary of the star of World War 1.
Anyone is welcome to join - your first rehearsal is free! Rehearsals take place at the St Giles' Centre opposite the church.
