Church of England Diocese of Canterbury Milstead

St Mary & the Holy Cross

We are a small but enthusiastic church community with excellent links to the wider community. Our services are very relaxed and informal, though traditional in style. Our morning Communion service uses contemporary language.

Safeguarding statement: The parish of Milstead: St Mary & Holy Cross 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.
