We are also able to provide Children’s groups across all 3 services and Youth work at 2 of our services Canterbury at 11am and Faversham at 4pm.

We know that church will feel very different as must keep to the COVID guidelines for worship services, such as wearing a face covering, being socially distant and not singing. However, we want to encourage you that we have been making every effort to ensure our venue and services are safe and in line with all COVID guidance. We have updated our Risk Assessments and can pass them on to you on request.

Please do contact us for more information about how to attend and we will ensure you have the link to make a booking for one of our upcoming services using our advance booking platform.
