Worship has been offered here at Boxley for about 1,000 years. While Boxley is a small village our church attracts people from all across Maidstone, as well as regular pilgrims from abroad and the UK.

Our worship is in the Modern Catholic Tradition but we're not stuffy or stiff. We have a good choir and a very strong choral and musical tradition to which we're deeply committed.

Our Services vary throughout the month. 

Each year we conduct a high volume of Baptisms and Weddings, many from out of the immediate area, as the church and its location are very attractive. There is a deep feeling of peace within the church: we are there to 'kneel where prayer has been valid...' (T S Eliot, Four Quartets).
