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'
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!

God,
Sometimes this world is hard to understand.
And even when we trust you, our hearts still ache.
So we come to you today asking for the hope we need.
Hope that sees past the here-and-now to the then-and-there.
Hope that believes what we cannot yet glimpse.
Hope that holds our hearts up in the moments when life brings us to our knees.

You are the only One who can sustain us.
You are the only One who can save us.
Be the rescuer of our souls, the deliverer of our dreams, the holder of our hearts.
We believe that even the darkest night must lead to dawn.
We wait with expectation.
Give us courage.
Surround us with comfort.
Love us through to the other side in the way only you can.
We put our hope, and our hopes for those we love, in you.
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.
