St Giles’ tries to be a welcoming, inclusive and friendly church. We’re also a very musical one!
On Tuesdays, Camberwell Community Choir rehearses in the St Giles’ Centre and regularly performs concerts in church. On Fridays, live Jazz is performed in the crypt, attracting audiences of over a 100 people each week. On Saturdays, Camberwell Choir School meets in the church hall. Set up by a previous vicar of St Giles’, the Choir School is an amazing Camberwell institution and has music sessions for children of all ages. Finally, St Giles’ Choir sings in church each Sunday morning, leading worship for the parish.
The last few years have seen some amazing performances at St Giles’. There’s been silent film nights with live music, combined-choir events and audiences have been wowed by ‘Organoke’ – our very own take on karaoke with the mighty church organ! Concerts have included orchestras, octets, string quartets, humorous funerary violins…, steel pans, Brazilian café music duos and barbershop quartets. And at the end of each year, Carols ’round Camberwell brings everyone together with an opportunity to play and sing carols in our local community.
