St Lawrence, Godmersham is part of the King's Wood Benefice in the Diocese of Canterbury.   Set in the Stour Valley of East Kent, the Church serves a small but thriving rural community. There are morning services on most Sundays during the month ranging from a Common Worship Communion to a more modern Celebration Service employing our state-of-the art audiovisual system.   (See Calendar of Events for details)

The Church prides itself on its activities for young people with childrens’ events, Rainbow and Brownie packs and the Sunday evening ‘Godsquad’ attended by many teenagers from the surrounding area. Latest news on the Church and its community can be found in Benefice News which is distributed weekly at services and included in the Benefice Website
