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.

 Christian Library Service - 
For several years, under church auspices we have been taking childrens’ Christian books into the schools at Upchurch, Lower Halstow and Newington. This is under the ‘umbrella’ of the Church. We now have the opportunity of going into Hartlip school from September. However, to do this we need more books and some more help with visits. We go into the schools on a monthly basis, during term time, for approximately one hour during the lunch time period.

If anyone could offer their services in any way -
childrens’ Christian books, cash to buy books, and most of all, ‘time’ to go into the schools, contact
