Church of England Diocese of Rochester Westerham

St Mary the Virgin, Westerham

Welcome to St Mary's Church, located in the centre of Westerham in Kent.   

We hold church services (communion) on Sundays at 10.30am, which are also livestreamed on Facebook and uploaded later in the day to YouTube.   Our Katharine Chapel is open for private prayer on Wednesdays from noon until 1.00pm.   Please note that it is now mandatory to wear face coverings when entering the church building.   Sadly our building is not currently open to visitors.    But 'church' is more than the building... so please look around this site where there are details of all we are doing, as well as links to resources to enable us to worship from home.

We are not perfect, but we invite anyone to join with us as we are discovering more about the love of God and learning  how we can reflect that love to each other.

If you want to talk with the vicar about anything, then please contact Revd Kevin on 01959 563127 or email  [email protected]

The parish of Westerham: St Mary the Virgin is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults.
