Serving God, Serving our Community

From the beginning of October we will be recommencing morning services in the two churches in the Benefice: St Mary’s in Frittenden and Trinity Church Sissinghurst.  These services will start at 10am and will alternate on a weekly basis between the two churches. To help us manage numbers please let Joanna Beech (852312) know if you are planning to attend the St Mary’s service and Penny Durie (712612) know if you are planning to attend the service at Trinity in Sissinghurst. See below for details.

In addition a new initiative, Families at Four will be starting in October, also alternating between the two churches. This will be a short afternoon service for young families. All are welcome, contact Pete for more details.

To keep up to date with the many ways in which we continue to worship and maintain community, please make sure you’re on our mailing list and keep checking this website.

Although St Mary’s Church is still mainly closed during the week, we are opening for private prayer each week, from 2pm to 5pm on a Wednesday. See below for details.

We look forward to the day when we can once again enjoy together the familiar surroundings in safety.
