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

  1. From the beginning of June 2017 there will be a new pattern for our 8am services. There will be a service at Bethersden on the first Sunday in the month, at High Halden on the second and at Woodchurch on the third.
  2. We are trying a new service on the third Sunday in the month at Woodchurch - Café Church - why not pop along and see for yourself.  There will be a choice of things to do – hence the name.  The service starts at 5pm in the afternoon so that it won’t clash with Sunday morning activities elsewhere and replaces the 11am service.  Give it a whirl ….. Sue Wharton

 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 Christian in the world today.
We are all pilgrims on a journey.

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