We are inspired by our vision of God, and empowered by an inclusive Christian ministry and mission, to strengthen the community life of our village. We have a historic church building which is used by the congregation for worship and concerts. The congregation is small, hard-working,and enjoys socials as well as worship. We like being part of village life, working with our fellow Christians, and would be really happy if you could join us serving God and our neighbour.

Holy Innocent is part of the Barham Downs Benefice which include: Barham, Kingston, Bishopsbourne and Womenswold.

Holy Innocents
This is the Church's Fest Day when we recall an often overlooked part of the Christmas narrative when King Herod fearing that a Messiah of God would threaten his reign ordered his soldiers to massacre the babes of Bethlehem. The Holy Family flee to Egypt. On this day when we recall the murder of innocent lives, let us stand before our just and holy God, and remembering the violence and injustice of our world, confess our sins in penitence and faith. Heavenly Father, whose children suffered at the hands of Herod, though they had done no wrong: by the suffering of your Son and by the innocence of our lives frustrate all evil designs and establish your reign of justice and peace; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
