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 ... so do join us!

 

December, December, a month to remember
a month full of darkness and light,
a month full of rushing and sharing and hoping,
a month full of one special night.

Advent

Thank you that each year we can once again travel through the season of Advent.
As we remember the journey made by Mary and Joseph help us, also, to journey in our relationship with you and others.  As we focus on various aspects such as the prophets or angels help us also to see you through the everyday things of life.  We offer ourselves to you through all the busyness of the next few weeks and ask that we are transformed beyond our imagination.  Let our hearts be opened in a deeper and deeper way as we journey to welcoming, once again, Jesus, the Son of God. 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.
