Welcome to The Six
We are a group of six churches in the countryside between Sittingbourne and Rainham in North Kent. As Church of England parish churches for our six villages, we are here for everyone, and we would love to get to know you.
We share a vision of communicating the love of God in creative ways to those around us.
Whether you're looking for a new church, exploring faith for the first time, or just looking around, you would be very welcome to join us for one of our services, at one of our groups and activities, or just for a chat. You can find contact details for the clergy here.

Join the conversation - being a Christian is about the whole of life, not just an hour on Sunday mornings, and our blog offers the chance to join in regular reflections on what it means to be a Christian in the modern world.
Jesus told his disciples to spread his message of good news to the four corners of the world, and they did what he asked of them - there are now more than 2 billion Christians in almost every country in the world. But the church looks different in each of those countries. Clare Amos, who lives in Newington works in the worldwide church and writes letters from the world church to give us an insight into Christian faith around the world.
