St Mary Magdalene

Welcome to St Mary's Stockbury!

The church building lies outside the village next to an ancient keep. St Mary Magdalene is part of The Six benefice, a group of six Church of England parishes between Rainham and Sittingbourne in the north west corner of the Diocese of Canterbury.


The parish of Stockbury: St Mary Magdalene 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.
