Situated in the beautiful Kent countryside, we are a rural benefice made up of three parishes,
St Margaret's Bethersden, St Mary's High Halden and All Saints Woodchurch.  
United in God, w
e are part of the Diocese of Canterbury in the Church of England.
Each church within our benefice is unique, historic and in itself could be a place of pilgrimage
and an exciting exploration about history and spirituality of England,
but, above all, our lovely churches are places of worship.

 
We believe that as worshipping communities we are called by God,
through Jesus Christ, in the power of the Spirit,
to make Christ known to all in our neighbourhood and beyond.
We also aim to serve our community and the world in which we live,
and in all that we do we seek to
'Know God, Show His Love, Spread His Word'
Each of us is on a journey of faith.
Together we are learning what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.
Everyone is made welcome in our churches, wherever they are on their own particular journey,
as we try to work out 
what it means 
to be a Christian in the world today.
We are all pilgrims on a journey.
After the morning service we come together for refreshments ... so do join us!

Prayer

Loving God, we thank you for giving us life and that your mercies and great compassion for us are new every morning.  Thank you for giving us Jesus and experiencing what it is to be totally human.  At the beginning of this New Year help us to see that you want to be intimately involved in every part of our lives, however untidy and complicated they are.  God of order and great love, come into every part of our lives.  Help us to accept the promise of your plans to prosper us, not to harm us but to give us a hope and a future.  Journey with us in 2015.  We ask all these things through your name, Jesus.  Amen

Thank You, Lord,
for a costly cross...
an empty tomb...
a triumphant Saviour...
and a heart set free for all eternity!


But thanks be to God!
He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
