Welcome to St Martin's.  Rev Martin Jones has been Licensed with primary responsibility for St Martin's and it's great to be led by him and enjoy worship with his extended family.

We would like to offer a warm welcome to you should you decide to visit our church

St Martin's is an ancient building with a young at heart congregation.

We love and worship the Lord Jesus and He is central to all that we do.

We celebrate Holy Communion twice a month and our emphasis is on enabling families to worship together. We welcome all ages from our youngest,who enjoy the creche facilities through the children, who meet together for their own activities during the service, to our oldest members who appreciate the cushions in the pews.

We celebrate the fact that each of us has been given a gift which God requires us to use, and to that end many people take part in the services each week. Our music group leads our worship and we sing a mixture of modern contemporary songs as well as older traditional hymns.

We offer prayer ministry before and after the service, and have seen the Lord answer our prayers for which we give Him praise.

We serve tea and coffee after each service to enable us to meet together and welcome visitors.

The building is beautiful and dates to Saxon times. It has been added to over the centuries and isn't always conducive to 21st century worship but we do our best to join our worship with the millions who have worshipped here down the ages.

Our children's ministry happens on Friday evenings at 7pm in Aldington Village Hall when Thank Goodness It's Friday meet. This is divided into 2 groups, Furnace for school years 6-8 and Ignite for years 9+.

Furnace  has an emphasis on fun and learning more about Jesus, who He is and why following Him is important.

Ignite is for older teenager and encourages them to use their gifts to help others.


The first Sunday in the month is a more relaxed service around messy church to which all familes are welcome.  It is a slightly shorter service again finishing with tea and coffee.

A warm welcome awaits you, come and join us as we worship the Lord and give Him the glory for all He is doing in us and through us.
