St Giles-in-the-Fields, also commonly known as the Poets' Church, is a church in the London Borough of Camden, in the West End. It is close to the Centre Point office tower and the Tottenham Court Road tube station. The church is part of the Diocese of London within the Church of England. Several buildings have stood on the site; the present structure (in the Palladian style) was built between 1731 and 1733.
The mission of the Anglican Parish Church of St Giles-in-the-Fields in the West End of London is to reflect the love of God given through Jesus Christ for the life of the world; to offer reverent and uplifting worship and prayer, to practice hospitality and encourage community, and to serve the pastoral and spiritual needs of all who live, work and pass through our parish.
The church is one of the few churches within Central London to use the Book of Common Prayer and King James Bible for all main services. The church is open daily for quiet prayer and reflection with morning and evening prayer being said at 8.15am and 5.30pm. On Sundays, three services are held: said Holy Communion at 9am, Sung Eucharist at 11am and Evensong at 6.30pm.
Church music is provided by a professional quartet of singers at Sunday morning services and a voluntary choir at Evensong. The voluntary choir, open to all, sings regularly on Sunday Evenings and has up to 24 members. The choir was started in 2005 by the current Director of Music, Mr Jonathan Bunney. The voluntary choir has sung at Guildford Cathedral and further cathedral visits are planned for the future.[
