Church of England Diocese of Canterbury Ashford Town

About Us

Saint Peter and Paul or Shadoxhurst Church as it is known, is a Chapel of Ease or small church with no regular Sunday Services, in the historic heart of the village in Church Lane. It is a small but beautiful church with an open graveyard and is normally open every day for private prayer. There are 2 Holy Communions and a Songs of Praise service here each month.

Kingsnorth and Shadoxhurst Church in the parish of Ashford Town is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Canterbury’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
