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.
