We are sad to hear that Mabel Boyd passed away in Wellington on August 16. She had just celebrated her 97th Birthday. Mabel had a long history with St Giles and The Village – attending services while we were meeting at St Andrew’s Chapel. Our thoughts are with Sandra (daughter) and the rest of the family.

Our Sunday Sermon is usually posted to the Village Church website on a Monday.  If you can’t be at Church on a Sunday and would like to read the Sermon, you’ll find it under the ‘Reflections’ heading – go to
