St Giles is in the historic village of Bodiam above the castle, surrounded by beautiful countryside. The church is largely from the 14th century but the base of the tower dates from the 12th century. It is set in a peaceful churchyard away from the hurly burly of the village and tourists. Services are held on 1st and 3rd Sunday each month at 11.15am, where you can be assured of a warm welcome, with a relaxed traditional style of worship and liturgy. Evening Prayer is said in church each Thursday at 6.00pm, and the Eucharist is celebrated on all major festivals.
