Welcome and Hospitality

St Giles Church is a sacred site nestling beautifully under the wooded slopes of the South Downs.  Here the ever-changing colours of the trees remind us of the heavenly rhythms of the earth and the varied cycle of our seasons.  We worship God together at St Giles in our morning services, offering our prayers and praise and sharing in communion and friendship.  At All Saints Chapel we gather for evening services and on weekdays for Morning Prayer.  Each child worshipping with us honours us with their presence and we offer a special welcome to each one.   Our Church and our Chapel are open for everyone daily in daylight hours.  Find out more about our services here.


St Giles is a beautiful and historic Church and we often receive visitors who are visiting the area on holiday or staying with friends, both to spend time in its peaceful, prayerful interior and to come to Services at St Giles. St Giles and All Saints folk are friendly people, and if you are visiting you are assured of a real welcome. We enjoy serving refreshments after services when we can, to meet one another and build friendships and community life. These are served at St Giles after ‘Church on Sunday’ services on the first Sunday of each month and other special festival services. We have delicious coffee and often home-made cake and biscuits.  For visitors, guides to the church are available and see History: Exploring Our Past and History: Exploring our Church for further information about our heritage.


We pray that this peaceful haven will provide rest for your souls and that you will journey from our church each time renewed in faith, hope and love.
