This year in Hernhill we are celebrating 900 years of Hernhill Church with a range of special events throughout the year including a presentation about the stained glass windows in the church (27 March), the launch of a new church guide and a talk on the history of the church (15 May), a concert by the University of Kent UKC Chamber Choir (22 May) and a flower festival (3-5 July). The most important event of the year is the celebration weekend on 20 and 21 June. The Saturday will see a full programme of events and entertainment for all the village on the village green and Sunday will have a special celebration service at 11 a.m. There are special events planned too for the second half of the year. You don’t have to live in Hernhill to come along to our events, put the dates in your diary and come and celebrate with us.

Retiring collection in aid of St Michael’s Church
A project has just started, to restore, repair and conserve some of the stained glass windows in Hernhill Church. The church still has some 15th century glass, unlike a lot of churches where it was destroyed either during the Reformation or Cromwell’s time. Hernhill’s has survived because it was hidden at a local farm for safety. As well as some unique painted Georgian glass there are Victorian windows with work by some of the most famous and respected artists of the day
