St Mary the Virgin, Westerham
Welcome to St Mary's Church, located in the centre of Westerham in Kent.
With the UK continuing to ease social distancing restrictions and with Covid-19 infection rates continuing to fall in our area we are delighted to announce that we have opened the church again for in person worship. The social distancing and other measures that we took to limit the risks will be in place again, and everyone must please wear a mask while in church.
Currently, funerals and burials of ashes continue to be permitted, and while no longer limited to a maximum of 30 people, we do need to assess how many people St Mary's can safely accommodate for each funeral with social distancing.
Weddings are also now permitted with a maximum of 30 people in attendance.
'Church' continues to be 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.
