The beautiful Grade I listed Church of St. Giles stands at the centre of the picturesque village of Sidbury where a church building has stood since Saxon times.  Under the chancel there exists to this day a 7th century Saxon crypt, this is open every Thursday afternoon, during the summer, when guided tours take place.

In the 1860's a second church, St Peter's was built in the parish at Sidford. Attached is a hall which is used by both congregations.
