To know Jesus Christ and make him known
Following the death of HRH Prince Philip our churches will be open over the weekend for people to drop in, light a candle and have a moment of quiet reflection. There will be prayer cards available for people to take.
Boughton Parish Church Sunday 11th April 2-4 pm
Hernhill Church's tenor bell will be tolled 99 times at 12 noon. There will be similar ringing in other church towers as a mark of respect for the Prince's passing and his years of service to our nation. Details from Peter Wilcock or Hernhill Facebook.
There are also services in Graveney and Hernhill Churches on Sunday morning, no need to book.
As we gradually open our churches again, there will be services in the churches, but some services are still being carried out on Zoom,. All are listed here
Anyone is welcome to join in our Zoom services but you need a secure password,
please email and I’ll send it.
We don’t want people to feel excluded so people not on the internet or using Zoom
can now phone in to our services and events. It means they can hear all that is being
said and can be heard, but there is no video. It is easy to do, contact me for full
instructions and passwords. The calls cost the same as your normal phone calls, many
people have 60 minutes free. Jean 01227 751410.

For information about baptisms, weddings and funerals please contact Revd Jean.
We are booking weddings for next year.
If your loved one has died and you weren’t able to have the funeral you wanted perhaps you are now thinking of a memorial service. Please contact Revd Jean before you spend a lot of money with a big company. One well known national company is offering a memorial service for £700 plus venue hire, catering etc. A church memorial service is a fraction of that cost, please be careful.

Stop Press !
God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Are you anxious about family, friends, or yourself, and do not know where to turn? Are you, or someone you know, in a crisis and unable to pray?
There are people willing to pray for you because prayer does make a positive difference.
and your prayer request will be passed along the Prayerline.
All prayer requests are completely confidential so only the people on the Prayerline will know about your needs and they will never discuss it with anyone.
If you would like prayers for a relative or friend and you want to name them you will need to ask their permission first but we don't need someone's name
to pray for them.
Please use us - we'd love to help you.

In the true sense, church is not a building, but PEOPLE, bound together by faith and fellowship.
So it's everywhere.
The church is deeply rooted in our communities, and we aim to reach out to them in service, in love and in prayer.
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, and come in for a visit as soon as we are able to open more freely. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbour.
Services would normally held in all three villages every Sunday and often during the week. At the moment, there are special arrangements, as we try to re-open.
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, normally available to and welcoming for all. They are currently closed but we look forward to the day when we can share in their glory.
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.
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.
Our Church Family
God has called us to become a Church Family …. not just to become a church for families …. but to be a church family, available to everyone, from every age and background.
