To know Jesus Christ and make him known
Welcome, and thank you for visiting our Church online.
This is a website for the three parishes in our benefice - Boughton with Dunkirk, Hernhill and Graveney with Goodnestone. We work together to highlight the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our churches on this site, or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbour.
Some of the following pages are still under construction, so please bear with us!
We are a welcoming community of people who want to explore the Christian faith, worship God together and develop friendships.
We are part of the Church of England and are three parishes working together as one church,
We don't pretend to have all the answers, but we have found that there is a God who loves each one of us, wherever we are on the journey of faith. Church, for us, is about making that journey as a community of all ages, encouraging and supporting one another through the ups and downs of life, and enjoying fun and friendship along the way.
Services are held in all three villages every Sunday and often during the week. There will always be something to suit you, and a warm welcome:
Our Church Family
God has called us to become a Church Family …. not just to become a church for familes …. but a church family available to everyone from every age and background.
In the true sense, church is not a building, but PEOPLE, bound together by faith and fellowship.
So it's evrywhere.
The church is deeply rooted in our communities, and we aim to reach out to them in service, in love and in prayer.
Where is your church?
Your buildings, here for you to use and enjoy
These church buildings have been at the centre of village communities for centuries, and are a sign that God is present in life here. They are a natural focus for special times in our lives, available to and welcoming for all.
They are much more than just much loved historic monuments. They are holy places where Christians have worshipped for a thousand years.
Most important of all, they are a living church, and you are welcome. Find out more about them, and where to find them, here.
