Serving God, Serving our Community

Welcome

Welcome to the website for St Mary’s Church, Frittenden.

St Mary’s Church is part of the benefice of Sissinghurst with Frittenden. It is in the Weald Deanery of the Archdeaconry of Maidstone, in the Diocese of Canterbury.

We provide a range of services using both traditional and modern forms of worship over a monthly cycle. There is a weekly Sunday Club for children, an active choir and a dedicated team of bellringers.

We are currently in an Interregnum – that is the time between our previous Rector retiring and the licensing and installation of his replacement, see below.

In the meantime if you have any questions about St Mary’s please speak to one of the Churchwardens: Joanna Beech (852312) or John Stansfeld (852185).
