More than a thousand years of sharing God's love in the Community

Welcome to St Giles Church Horsted Keynes


St Giles is a Church of England village church at the heart of this rural community. Our historic church has stood as a beacon in the village for over a thousand years ministering to all of the parish with God's love guiding the way.

St Giles Church encompasses all generations, with a strong youth involvement through our Primary school, a committed focus on families and a caring and responsive approach to our more senior members. All of this bonded together by prayer and united worship.

Please take the time to browse our website to find out what we have been doing in the name of God and to see what is yet to come and we look forward to seeing you at our forthcoming worship and activities.



St Giles now has an active Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/stgilesHK/





Our Vision

To become better followers of Christ by loving God and loving others

Following our Lord’s teaching of the greatest commandments:


“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind”.

“You shall love your neighbour as yourself.” (Matthew 22. 37.39)
