To know and love Jesus and to make his love known to all

  • 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.

    The year rolls on, and here we are in Lent. Our Lent Course, utilising Michael Mayne's "Dust that dreams of glory" is up and running. There is a choice of two evenings and two venues. You can either come along at 8pm on a Tuesday evening to the Memorial Hall in Benenden, or at 7:30pm on a Wednesday evening at the Mission Church in Back Road, Sandhurst (TN18 5JU). If you miss your perferred evening one week, you're very welcome to just turn up at the other session. The Course runs through the five weeks of Lent.

    In Holy Week there is a service every day to lead us through Maundy Thursday and Good Friday to the joy of Easter Sunday. Services at the Mission Church are at 5pm, and at St. George's at 7:30pm. There is a service at 10am in both St. Nicholas (Sandhurst) and St. George's (Benenden) on Good Friday.

    If you are up for an early start, there is a dawn service at St. Nicholas on Easter Sunday; it starts at 5:30pm, and is followed by bacon butties in the Mission Church!

    Hope to see you on the journey.
