We are two Church of England (Anglican) parishes in the Sevenoaks Deanery of the Diocese of Rochester, within the Canterbury Province. St Katharine's and St Margaret's came together in 1983 as a United Benefice under one parish priest. Our pattern of services reflects the fact that we are two parishes working closely together.
• 1st Sunday: 10.30am Family Service
• 2nd Sunday: 9.00am Choral Matins
• 3rd Sunday: 10.30am Family Communion
• 4th Sunday: 8.00am Holy Communion; 6pm (4pm in Winter) Holy Communion at BMMH
Please email or phone the Rector, the Rev'd John Benson for further details of these services, or for a fuller explanation, please visit the church website. Our Curate, the Rev'd Hugh Thomas helps to lead and develop our parishes in worship. Churchwardens assist our Rector and Curate in this.
We have two thriving choirs, a Youth Choir and an Adult Choir, led by professional music teacher, Clare Pollard, accompanied by our talented organist, Brian Shilling, following the RSCM's Voice for Life Scheme. For more information on our choirs and music, visit our website.
We also have strong children and youth outreach within our parishes, with a Sunday Club, Tots Praise, CYC, Crèche, Youth Choirs and annual holiday clubs for all children from surrounding schools. Again, more details are available from our website.
We hold many events such as Harvest luncheons, Bible Studies, summer picnics, BBQs, Lent courses, and many more enjoyable social gatherings. Our many groups and fellowships include a Mens' Fellowship, Mothers' Union, St Margaret's Flower Team and a St Margaret's Churchyard Working Party. A full history of St Margaret's along with sermons and articles is available on our website - please do take a look, and we look forward to welcoming you to our parish.
