Joy & Peace This Easter

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


 

 

Situated in the beautiful Kent countryside, we are a rural benefice made of 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'.
You are welcome as, together, we try to work out
what it means to be a Christian in the world today.

We are all pilgrims on a journey - so do join us!

Heavenly maker,
you sent Jesus,
the Word made flesh,
to give us life.
Not just any life
but life to the full
Holy Spirit-style.
Help us to explore it, grapple with it, embrace it
so that our hearts may overflow with
your grace,
your hope,
your love.
Amen.
