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 the UK starting 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 from Easter Day, 4th April. 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 are permitted attended by a maximum of 30 people, and burials of ashes can continue with up to 15 people in attendance.

Weddings are also now permitted with a maximum of 15 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.
