“Joyfully proclaiming the love and majesty of God in worship and outreach”

THE CANONRY BENEFICE

We represent seven churches in East Kent, each with the endeavour to be a community space and support for all villagers and visitors. In addition to weekly services for those who wish, we also provide support to local schools and groups as well as a public and private event venue

COMMUNITY EVENTS

MARRIAGES

It is always one of our great privileges and pleasures to welcome a couple who are considering marriage, and we want to help to make it a very special day.
The website Your Church Wedding has lots of excellent resources, however don’t hesitate to contact us to request more information. Please also enquire if you would like a blessing.

FUNERALS

Although the arrangements for funerals and burials are normally made through a Funeral Director in the first place, the Church is always here to offer help and support in times of need and crisis.  Please contact us if you would like to enquire about a funeral service (church or crematorium), service of remembrance or burial of ashes.

BAPTISMS

One of our great delights is to welcome people of all ages for Baptism (sometimes also called Christening).

Baptism marks the start of a commitment to journey with Jesus Christ and, as such, all are very welcome to make that step of faith. Children will need the support of their parents and godparents in this undertaking.
