The church for the Barbican, Old Street and Moorgate, St Giles' without Cripplegate is a medieval parish church with a long history and an active present, serving the local and wider Christian community whilst hosting a range of arts and cultural events.
Being just beyond the still present Roman city walls saved St Giles' from the Great Fire and allowed it to be a refuge for non-establishment religious ideas. Oliver Cromwell was married and John Milton (Paradise Lost) buried at St Giles'. Lancelot Andrewes, John Speed and William Shakespeare are among others associated with the church.
Today St Giles' continues to be a place for prayer and private reflection, for marriages and funerals, baptisms and christenings, but also a place to fulfil more temporal needs: concerts, book fairs and recycling days, among others.
Any donations to help maintain the ancient building for Christian worship and to support our work throughout the community will be much appreciated.
