Great news for Bodiam, Bishop Martin, the new Bishop of Chichester is to visit every parish in his diocese. He’ll be in Bodiam on October 4 at around 10.15am. Bishop Martin will be due at St Giles Church. It’s important that as many people as possible come along to greet the bishop at St Giles, but he must e on his way by 10.45am.

It would be great for him to remember people more than buildings. The harvest festival service at St Giles will be on October 6 at 11.15am, I hope we get a good turnout at both events.
