Team Clergy Surgery


A Clergy Surgery is held in St Mary's Church on Saturday mornings from 10.00 am to 11.00 am, when one of the clergy is available in church for any enquiries other than those for St. Giles Codicote - just turn up, you don't need an appointment. The café is open in Church House should you need to wait!  Clergy Surgery is primarily intended for anyone wishing to discuss and book weddings or christenings/baptisms but is not exclusively restricted to those arrangements.


Confessions are heard by arrangement with the Clergy. The Ministry of Counsel and Absolution is available to any who seek it at any time. Please contact the Team Rector or any of the other clergy.
