Open Churches

Your local church community is here to serve the village community, especially for the most vulnerable in our village communities. So our buildings are open during the week at defined times as Places of Hope for Breathing Space, offering time and space to 'breathe out' the anxieties and pressures you may be experiencing and to 'breathe in' peace and hope in their place that comes by being in the presence of God's love and grace. Time to be still, to come and rest for a while and to pray as you can. The days when the buildings are available for individual prayer and breathing space are as follows:

 St Michael's Hartlip

 Wednesday 10.30am - 12 noon Every two weeks 

 St Mary's Newington

 Every Wednesday 10am - 12noon

 St Mary's Upchurch

 'Cuppa n Chat' Every third Wednesday each month 

 St Mary Magdalene Stockbury

We are committed to ensuring the safety of everyone who enter our buildings.
