Go to the Kent-wide website to see how you might help ... guidance is given on food, money, or time donations! Nonfood items like nappies and wipes are also much needed.

Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come: Personal prayer cards will be available in church on the 14th May. More information about what the parish is doing during Thy Kingdom Come will be coming soon!
Archbishop Justin and Archbishop Sentamu write, "We are writing in the hope that you and those whom you serve in Christ's name might share with us in prayer between Ascension Day and Pentecost 2017 for the witness of Christians in this country. The sim is simple and threefold:

  • To join in prayer with the whole family of God the Father
  • To pray for the empowering of God the Father
  • That we may be effective witnesses to God the Son, Jesus Christ.

Register a commitment to pray with millions of other Christians at the Thy Kingdom Come website.
