Join the UCL Chaplain and Interfaith Adviser on an exciting and engaging visit to a significant Anglican parish church in the centre of London.

Professor Diarmaid Macculloch says "There are parish histories, and there are parish histories. When the parish church features in a Hogarth engraving known across the world, and Nell Gwynn is a former parishioner, the reader can be assured that the parish is anything but parochial. St. Giles-in-the-Fields has moved from calculated geographical remoteness to a central place in a great city..." about St. Gile's. 

In St. Gile's own words, "We welcome all those wishing to find God in their lives and offer solidarity in faith, rooted in an ancient and lively tradition. At St Giles being loved by God comes before where we stand in society. Our Christian faith is open to all those who seek after truth and we positively value the journey of faith within other traditions."

We will learn about this interesting community of worship by hearing from their Rector, having an opportunity to ask questions, explore the church, and observe or join in with a service of sung compline.


This is for anyone interested in learning more about such an historic church in London, especially one that embraces the ethos of traditional worship drawn from the Book of Common Prayer and Authorised Version of the Bible with an inclusive theology. People from all faith and worldview backgrounds are most welcome to attend. All levels of understanding and knowledge are welcome!+


  • Strengthen good relations across faith and worldview difference by increasing understanding.
  • Increase awareness of a distinct faith community in the UK.
