Every month we publish an in-house newsletter called The Pelican, after the carved figure installed above the altar. The so-called ‘Pelican-in-Piety’ symbol dates from medieval times: as the pelican was thought to pluck at her own breast in order to draw blood to feed her young, so Christ was seen to give of his own self in order to nourish his disciples. Among items to do with worship and events, each issue carries a short article from either the Rector or the Associate Rector. As some of these articles often have a larger theme, they are published here, for those who may want to learn more about St Giles or to reflect a little on our view of the world.
