The aim of the St Giles Bible School is to provide an opportunity for people to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the bible by providing courses each year based on a book or a theme from God’s Word.

It is also to encourage further personal study ourselves and to equip us for service within the church and beyond.

All the talks are recorded and are available via the links below.

Christians are called to be “a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation...” (I Peter 2:9). But what does that mean for us in our generation?

Holiness is a subject which most of us find perplexing and remote and therefore we tend to ignore it! But one commentator has suggested that there is a need to blow the whistle on the side-lining of personal holiness among Bible-centred Christians.

Therefore in this series we will be considering the theme of holiness, both the holiness of God and the holiness of God’s people. It will be rooted in scripture and in particular the studies of the Old Testament book of Ezra.

We will also be exploring the themes of the Sovereignty of God and the importance of prayer and intercession in the life of the nation.

Do come and join us if you can; all are welcome. All sessions take place in the Parish Centre and light refreshments are provided.


“Be holy, because I am holy.” Leviticus 11:44
