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, we 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.

 

USUAL SERVICE ROTA IN THE BENEFICE

  • On the third Sunday in the month at Woodchurch we have Café Church.  Why not pop along; there is a choice of things to do.  The service starts at 5pm in the afternoon so that it doesn't clash with Sunday morning activities elsewhere and replaces the 11am service at Woodchurch.  
  • On the 5th Sunday in the month the morning service is a Group Service which is held at either Bethersden, High Halden, Woodchurch, Biddenden or Smarden.

    Go to 'Services & Prayers' link above for details of this month's services.

 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 n our churches,
wherever they are on their own particular journey,
as we try to work out what it means to be Christian in the world today.
We are all pilgrims on a journey. 

After the morning service we come together for refreshments ... please join us!
