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!

 


pentecost

A Prayer for Pentecost

Loving, generous Father,
In your love you gave us Jesus - sent him out to bring us back to you. And when he had completed his work, by dying on the cross, rising again, and coming back to you, you hadn’t stopped giving. You gave us your Holy Spirit.  You sent him at Pentecost and you send him today.
Thank you Father.

Fill us with your Spirit Lord.
Equip us with the gifts of your Spirit that we need to serve you. Ripen in us the fruit of your Spirit, so that our lives will be witnesses that you are alive today in this world; that you have the power to renew and restore broken hearts and lives and all creation.

Fill us with your Spirit Lord.
Send us out in the Spirit’s power to live and work for you, to make your difference today, for your glory.

Fill us with your Spirit Lord, we pray.
Amen.

 


God is Lovve

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

I Corinthians 15:57

  


IT IS IN QUIET OBEDIENCE
that we follow his footsteps
IT IS IN QUIET REFLECTION
that we hear his voice
IT IS IN QUIET ASSURANCE
that we find his rest
IT IS IN QUIET TRUST
that we find his strength
PRAYING THAT HE BLESSES YOU AS YOU WALK WITH HIM
