  • Revd David warmly welcomes you to the parish church.

    St George's Church building stands visibly in the heart of Benenden village, but the Church is more than a building, it is a living community of people drawn together by the revelation of the loving nature of God in Jesus Christ.

    In October to November, we enter a time of remembering. On Friday 2nd November there wss a service to commemorate the Faithful Departed; the names of loved ones who have died were read out during this service and candles lit in their memory. (This is an annual service; please consider joining us for it next year.)

    On the 11th November we had our annual Act of Remembrance service, starting at 10:45am. In the evening there was a service to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. Both services were very well supported by the community; thank you for coming along to remember those from previous generations of our community who were killed or injured, and the families whose lives were dramatically affected. Thank you to everyone who prepared the church for these services, and to those who contirbuted to the services - especially those who shared personal family memories, letters and diaries.

    It is important for us and for future generations that we keep remembering their actions, and that we learn from past mistakes and our own mistakes. Let us learn from that, and grow in wisdom.
