Our church is a Grade 1 listed building known locally as “the church in the woods”. It is set in woodland to the west of Fawkham Road, approximately 500 yards from its junction with London Road in the hilltop village of West Kingsdown in Kent.

The Church does not have a Postcode, but the cottages opposite the end of the lane that leads to the Church have the Postcode TN15 6AY. 

Nowadays the church is the centre of a vibrant Christian community within the village of West Kingsdown. Further information about our Parish, its people, the services at St Edmund’s, outreach and activities and our church is available on the our website.
