St Giles Church is featured in Simon Jenkins book "England's 1000 Best Churches". It was built in around 1247, reputedly by masons who helped build York Minster, using stones that remained after the building of the South Transept of the Minster. St Giles has stood for over 700 years and will probably stand for another 700. It is a classically handsome building, approached through an attractive Churchyard, the perfect setting for your wedding or christening ceremony. Couples love to come back here to relive their special day and show their children and grandchildren where they married.St Giles church is also an attractive place for weddings. You don't have to be from the local area to be married here. A guide booklet is available, inside the Church. We use the "Common Worship" order of service, with hymns from "Mission Praise" and music of "The Addington Service". "The St.Giles Singers" will be singing on the second Sunday of each month and for other special services. Come and discover our beautiful church.

An Invitation, please be a friend.
You are warmly invited to become a Friend of St. Giles.
Friends was formed in 2009 on the 1st September (St. Giles Day) to endeavour to maintain the building to it`s current high standard.
The church building belongs to all the people of Skelton, not just the congregation and the care of our heritage is the responsibility of the whole community, not just church members.
