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 11.00 - noon.   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. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSO. The Diocese of Rochester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSO. 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.

Sunday worship in our Church building - Also livestreaming on Facebook (Click "More about this event" below) and will be uploaded to our YouTube channel later on Sunday

The service will follow Church of England liturgy with confession, absolution, reading, sermon, prayers and communion; sadly we cannot sing at this time.

The vicar and Standing Committee have undertaken a Risk Assessment,based on the Church of England template, which has been presented to the PCC. Services will look different to how we remember them from March; there is a lot to take in but please see the attachment which will explain what to expect – in detail - so you can make an informed decision on attending.

Please note that face coverings must be worn.
