st giles churchSt Giles Church is the Parish Church of central Willenhall.  It has a long history, having been a Chapel of Ease connected to St Peters Church Wolverhampton since the earliest times.  In the nineteenth century the expansion of Willenhall necessitated the building of new churches to serve the growing population.  St Giles was rebuilt into its present form and new churches were built - St Stephen's, St Anne's and Holy Trinity in Shortheath.
