About Us

Team Vicar: Revd David Ridley 

A place of worship has stood on this site since the 11th Century, making it by far the most historic of the central Sittingbourne churches.  Much restoration took place after a fire in 1762, and there were further Victorian restorations between 1859 and 1887.

Our services are held at St. Michael's Church. Our main service is Holy Communion with St. Michael's Choir every Sunday at 10 am, except for the first Sunday when Communion is at 9 am, followed by a 10 am Praise service. 

We also have a weekly service on Wednesday's at 10.00 am Holy Communion . Our monthly services are BCP Choral Evensong at 4.00 pm on the second Sunday of the month.

We welcome anyone seeking peace and quiet; a time to reflect or remember; or those who wish to walk around and explore.  

On Wednesdays we have a Place of Welcome which is open from 11.00 am until 1 pm with refreshments, someone  to chat to, a craft club, or a quiet corner if that is what is needed. Its a wonderful space, no money is needed, and it is proving to be very popular with visitors.

In addition to these hours, the church is open for concerts from aspiring professional musicians every Sunday morning at 11 am (entry by donation) and until 12 o'clock every Sunday. 

St. Michael's is a fine venue for your wedding, with bells, organ, plenty of seating and picturesque backgrounds.

Toilet facilities are in the Church .
