Welcome to St Mary's, Sellindge, one of the six historic churches in the beautiful Stour Downs Parish. There is a variety of worship on offer across our churches each week, and you will receive a warm welcome at our church -whatever stage of life or faith you are at.
St Mary's is a Festival Church, which means it used for life event services (weddings, christenings and funerals) and has a worship service on days of key festivals in the Church year. The PCC are working on projects to develop and use the space for the community, such as a space for the arts.
Our own website www.stourdowns.org.uk and our Facebook page (Stour Downs Parish) have more details of our events and services.
