Church of England Diocese of Canterbury Badlesmere with Leaveland

About Us

St Laurence Church Leaveland sits in the heart of rural and farming Kent and has done since recordings in the Domesday Book in the 11th Century. It is delightfully small, simple and still. The church is used twice monthly for Common Worship Holy Communion Services on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month at 9.30am. The church takes part in God's Acre Project and has won 2 awards for it's contribution to the care of the churchyard's natural beauty plus an award from Kent Life. With a local artist often in residence midweek and other occasional events like The Chilli Festival in early September the space is well loved by our lively congregation. It has been linked with St Leonard's Church, Badlesmere for many years forming one parish.  We are now also part of the benefice of Shepherds Lees.  Our two churches are always open, welcoming and well worth visiting!
