St Giles Graffham

Nestling in a beautiful spot in the lee of the South Downs, Graffham's historic St Giles Church has been welcoming people to worship and to family landmark events for more than 800 years.  Today, it is a focus for its vibrant village, particularly at Christmas, Easter and Remembrance Day, for baptisms, weddings and funerals and, of course, for regular Sunday services, with its tower of six bells ringing out over the neighbouring fields, woods, hills and homes.  Graffham is rare today as a standalone rural parish.   

For details of our services, please see

To safeguard St Giles' heritage and future, and to enable it to deliver its ministry and mission to the community it serves today, it relies on the generosity of those who visit regularly, occasionally or even just online.  Any support you can offer will be gratefully appreciated.
