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 ... please join us!

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

May your heart ...

 


smile

SMILE ... IT IS FREE
A smile is cheer from you to me,

the cost is nothing, it's given for free.
They console the weary and gladden the sad.
And can make someone happy when they are mad.
Unlike blessings in which we pray
it's the only thing you keep, when you give it away
