MINISTRIES OF ST. GILES
In Christianity, ministry is an activity carried out by Christians to express or spread their faith. The Encyclopedia of Christianity defines it as “carrying forth Christ’s mission in the world”.
At St. Giles, our ministries are diverse and far-reaching. We have age-related ministries, which include our Sunday School programs and youth and family programs, specifically LOGOS, which incorporates Christian fellowship for all ages in a family environment.
We have Women’s and Men’s Groups, as well as creative ministries which include our Choir and Bell Choir. Our social ministries include all Fellowship Activities, as well as a Book Club and Parish Groups that get together to celebrate social events. Finally, our Outreach Program reaches out to our own community and far beyond – with missions in Jamaica, Cuba and as far away as Australia.
