Scouts and Guides Illuminate St Giles’

Last week, the Stoke Poges Air Scouts and Guides made (separate) visits to St Giles’ and the results were very creative!

On Wednesday night, Stoke Poges Guides visited St Giles’ to learn about stained glass windows and had a go at making their own. Outside, Andrew told them all about the story of the main East window before they made their own tissue paper “window” depicting their promise badge. Very effective with the light shining through, I’m sure you’ll agree!

On Thursday night, the Scouts were joined by photographer Jason Candlin, from Silver Beard Images and, using torches, “painted” St Giles’ with light to produce these amazing long exposure photographs.

We look forward to welcoming the uniformed groups and their families back to St Giles’ for our family service on Mothering Sunday, 10.30am on 11th March. We will be thanking and celebrating all mums and others who nurture us. Everyone is welcome to join us.
