St Michael and All Angels Hartlip
St Michael & All Angels Church stands centrally in the picturesque village of Hartlip, with beautiful views of orchards. Adjacent is the popular
C of E Primary School (Endowed), established and maintained by the Mary Gibbon Trust from the 1600s. The school and church have enjoyed a closely knit relationship for centuries ever since. Many village homes still treasure Mary Gibbon Bibles presented to former pupils. The school's Worship takes place in the church every Friday during term-time, which is an open service to anyone who would like to attend and encourages parents and family members.
We are open every day for private prayer or quiet reflection and to light a candle.
St Michael and All Angels Pilgrim Trail
We have a leaflet available for you to move around the church on a 'pilgrim trail', giving historical information of our building with the opportunity to pause for prayer at each station
of the trail. We pray you may find it helpful on your journey of faith.
