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.   

With our community now in Tier 4 area, we have taken the difficult decision not to hold our planned Christmas services in the church as we would normally, but to move them online to Zoom. We know this will be disappointing news for many in our congregation, and indeed the broader community, to hear. The decision was unanimous between the PCC, the Church Wardens and the Area Dean, Rev. Michael, and was taken in the interests of keeping both our congregation and those helping to lead and staff the service safely in a time of rising Covid-19 infections. Details of how to join our services over this period can be found here

Funerals are permitted attended by a maximum of 30 people, and burials of ashes can continue with up to 6 people in attendance.   

But 'church' is more than the building... so please look around this site where there are details of all we are doing to bring the community safely together, 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.
