St Mary Magdalene, Stockbury
The ancient church of St Mary Magdalene stands on a hill some half mile from the village of Stockbury. A church is recorded here in the Domesday Book and the massive Yew tree beside the church is over 900 years old.
Visitors are very welcome. You will find the same peace here as those who have long loved this church.
Until the arrival of Julian Staniforth, our new rector, our services will follow a different pattern through the month:
1st Sunday 3:00pm Sung Communion
2nd Sunday no service in December
3rd Sunday 3:00pm Sung Communion
4th Sunday 3:00pm Carol Service
5th Sunday, 29th December 10.30am - United Benefice Service at St Margaret's, Lower Halstow
Christmas Fair - Saturday 7th December in Stockbury Village Hall, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.
Victorian Carols on the Green - Friday 13th December on Stockbury Green with the Salvation Army Band at 7:00 pm.

We carry on with our monthly draw and are looking forward to the better weather and our summer events. The church is open on Saturdays and Sundays for the day and by key from the village shop, MB Farms, at all other times.
